    Does anyone worship in an old-fashioned white frame church with tall ceilings and clear windows that you can see outside of?

    That's the kind of church building that I grew up attending, but it burned when I was 20 years old, and they didn't build it back the same way.

    Now all I see around here are those low-slung, brown brick buildings with windows that you can't see out of. They remind me of a morgue.

    Guess I'm trying to recapture the church of my youth, without success. :)

    My church is in a store-front so no unfortunately I don't.
    However, I attended a similar church when I was younger. Small building, white siding, plain windows. Low ceiling however. But after the church grew, they built a new building next door with a tall ceiling, but with stained glass windows. The old sanctuary became the fellowship hall. Good memories :)

    sort of LOL We have clear windows you can see out of...however we keep them covered with blinds or it'd be so bright in the Florida sun we'd have to wear sunglasses inside. Our building is a lovely sandstone block...white frame would be awful in ths hot sun here and you'd be painting constantly, not to mention what the termites would do to a large frame building!

    We do still have PEWS!, haven't given them up for the hook together chairs so popular nowdays, and we still use hymnals.

    I'm sorry, could you please explain what a hymnal is? Is that like a screen that you hold in your hands? :laugh:
