Although faith is not about 'bricks and mortar', there is something majestic about worshiping our Lord in a beautiful, reverent space. This is it. We plan every visit to Charleston to include a Sunday morning so we can be here.

The church was not open the day we visited, but the large cemetery featured many interesting and historic graves.
