We started coming here as visitors then joined the Church. We were always felt welcomed and not left out. I now go early to Church so I can listen to the choir rehearse. They are truly gifted.

Wow, this place has a history that was surprisingly educational. If you're in the area, spend some time inside the Church and walk the grounds...you'll be enlightened by what you see and who's attended services in it's hallowed grounds.

Tour guides were very friendly. Did not go to the top of the steeple. History of the place and pictures were very interesting. Church is beautiful.
