Beautiful classic old mission church on a Bluff right on the river. Open to the public and docent was there to tell us all about the history. It’s worth the walk to the end of the road to check it out.

We enjoyed our visit and had a good tour with a docent that provided a lot of details that added greatly to our understanding of the building and history.

This church is perched on a bluff on a river. Many picnic there during the week. Interesting Church. I attended a service here and it is too large a church for me. I was a bit put off by the huge screens with the words to hymns on them...but that is just me. The service was very nice but you have to be comfortable in a big congregation for this church to resonate with you.

Be sure to plan your visit when the docent is there and get the tour of the inside including a bit of it's history not to mention the scenic May River, perfect for pictures.

Stopped by to see this church and a lovely docent provided a lot of history. Certainly a gem to be preserved and sounds like a thriving current congregation
