Church Street Methodist (Skywatch Friday)

Skies are blue, and temperatures are cold in Selma this week, and while I have posted photos of Church Street United Methodist Church before, here's yet another angle.

Methodists have worshiped here since 1835, and while this structure isn't the first, it sits on land set aside for the Methodists when the Selma Town Land Company drew the city's blueprints back in 1817.

The rose window above is a memorial to the 11 people who were part of the original congregation. Their names are included on the eight "petals."

To see more skies around the world, visit Skywatch HERE.

This is a different point of view! I like pictures of churches and especially Methodist Churches, because. Thanks for posting.

I like that angle, it tricked me. I thought it was looking down at a roof, at first.

The colors of the building work so well with the sky. Very nice.

Happy Sky Watch!

Great Skywatch capture today. We are freezing up here today. Whooo eeee. If I wanted to be this cold I would move up north!

I'm a United Methodist blogger and really love this old church picture. Nice sky too.

The sky is so blue, it makes a great contrast with the red brick building. Nice angle too!

That is a pretty cool angel to shoot from. Wonderful sky there, and love the sky against the color of the building.
