    Any history on this sturdy appearing building? Is that a bell tower? Was there ever a steeple? I pray it is still well attended.

      Thank you Brian, for documenting these historic black churches! I grew up in St John Missionary Baptist Church in Waycross,Ga. I moved away decades ago. Seeing the picture of it now makes me realized just how beautiful and majestic it is! Today the congregation is struggling to maintain the operational needs of the structure. I do what I can from afar. I hope these structures can be saved. It will take a village!!
