The Church on the Plaza Pictures

Some of you might look as this picture below and wonder what is on the roof??

Well, the answer is this: a pulpit. Yes, I am not kidding. Part of the original design of the church was for the gospel to have a voice in the midst of the city square. When I visited the church for the first time, I inquired about whether or not the pulpit is actually ever used for this purpose. And, it is! Sometimes the roof-top pulpit has been used for Easter Sunrise services and I learned in recent days there has been a annual September (start of the new school year per say) service from the roof.

Just know, I'm already thinking about what my first roof top experience of preaching will be like . . . church-photos-0091


These last two pictures are views from the front steps of the church. Beautiful stuff!
