Church Day in Tularosa, NM

Sunday was church day for the first time in a long time for both of us. Now you see, Sheryl has always enjoyed going to church since she was a little girl, but has gotten away from it the past several years. Myself, I've never been a big church goer. So, you maybe asking yourself, so whats the big deal?, so you went to church........ True, in the grand scheme of things it is no big deal, however, in light of recent events (Life Happening) we have decided to start attending again.

We began looking around for one to attend, we both agreed we don't care for the large or super churches. Well the other day, I was out taking pictures in the small town of Tularosa, NM and ran across this old church, built in 1922. I told Sheryl about it, small town, small old school service, so it was our choice. We attended and it was a great service, the folks were so friendly and we spent lots of time chatting with most everyone there afterwards. We know being Fulltime RV'ers it maybe difficult to find a church to attend every Sunday, but when we can we will seek out, small town ones as we enjoy the small local atmosphere much better than the large impersonal ones.

On a different note, churches are great photo subjects, there architecture (especially the older ones) can be very unique and beautiful. Ok, that's it, and just a few more days before continue our adventure.

We're with you, we enjoy the small churches, they do have a much friendlier atmosphere.

The mega churches scare us off, can you imagine trying to find a parking space for a 40' RV? ;c)
