‘Holy grounds' Point Washington UMC marks 125-year milestone

Renovation of the little historic church house began on Jan. 4, 1997, and all activities moved to The Stephens Center. The FamilyLife Centerwas built in 2005 and is used for contemporary services each week and the preschool.

The people are proud of the “early American gothic” architecture of their church, according to Houseman.

"We like the hype that it is the most photographed church on CR 395. It’s not unusual to see artists behind their easels, with oils, watercolors or charcoal, capturing on their medium the beauty of this house of God."

The "little white church" is an active full time parish of the Alabama-West Florida Conference … thanks in part to all the faithful who have gone on before.
