Religious signs in West Virginia

Some religious signs from a recent highly bumpercropulous swing through southeastern West Virginia.

There was a great, raucous Holiness service going on in this church, and the doors were open, so I parked and listened. Some folks came out of the church and invited in. I wish I could have joined them, but I had a dog in the car with me and couldn't leave him.

On the same church:

Near that church:

Also in McDowell County:

Close-ups of the Jesus windows. The Roman soldier drawing blows me away--what a peculiar choice.

Fayette County:


In Kincaid, a combination post office-praise center.

Hard to read, but the little blue sign says "Christians helping others."


From the Field Guide to What's Good.

You missed the murals in Northfork at the park... right off of Rt. 52.

I will post a link to them later.

Lovely pics! They remind me of some of Shelby Adams' pictures of religious signs in Kentucky.

Looks like the Lord Jesus Temple was once a Post Office.

I will have to post a link to some of mine when I get them up, My favorite is probably the hand painted sign nailed to a tree in (I believe it was) Franklin County, VA that simple says "Read Thy Bible".

Love it. Just love it.

Wow. Some of these are so familiar to me. Especially the ones in McDowell along 52.

I keep meaning to get my own camera gear out....but I always seem to be in such a hurry.

I need to slow down.
