The docent/volunteer did an excellent job recounting the history of the church. The grounds, as well as the building, were worth seeing.

This Cemetery has many old headstones, and is well-kept. The grounds have many old trees--stately live oaks, and other hardwoods. The shrubs and flowers are beautiful, and the atmosphere reverent and reflective. The author, Eugenia Price, is buried here. She is the novelist who wrote...More

Yes. It's a very active congregation with multiple services on Sunday and some weekday services as well. Look on their website - ccfssi
