Christ Church Of Jekyll Island,Georgia!

 
With Easter around the corner, I wanted to share this beautiful church with you! I had the opportunity to visit  Christ Church the week before Easter! This church is a historical church on Jekyll Island, Ga that was built in 1883. Reverend Charles and John Wesley held services under the oak trees at the site of the church!
 
 
 
This is a view of the inside of the church. I wanted to bring those lanterns home with me! They are original to the church!! The church was built by tradesmen that built ships, and you can see this in the construction of the beams. The church was built without nails in the architecture, except for around the casing of the windows! Another detail that was shocking to discover, is that this wood has NEVER been stained! This is the 'center best' part of a pine tree that is native to Georgia.
 
 
 
Look for more on the stained glass windows in my next blog! This is a picture of when Jesus asked Peter,
 "But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." How amazing this is to see right before Easter!
 

  This is the view of the church when you first walk in.. Look at all those gorgeous windows!


 Can you wrap your mind around the fact this is built without a single nail?

 
Until next time,
