Saturday turned into taking church snapshots day. As we drove through the back roads of eastern North Carolina we stumbled upon some beautiful churches along with the one church that I was specifically looking for.
This is Plank Chapel United Methodist Church in Kittrell outside of Henderson. According to the church's history, the first meeting house was founded by Roger Jones in the 1780's. That meeting house was replaced by several more churches until this current sanctuary was built in 1900. The church's website says this was the first church building with a steeple. The copper cross on the steeple comes from a former whiskey still!
