My husbands church is called Faith Roundup which I guess is more cute than funny but I thought it would warrant a mention. Its a church more for the homesteader, cowboy, farmer, you get the idea. Its actually listed as a cowboy church and meets in rotation at members barns or the local auction house. Good idea for a post by the way... cute.

We were in Panama City Fl. and we saw a building with a sign that said "First Baptist Church" and next to that building was another building with a sign that said "The Bible Believing First Baptist Church" my husband and I laugh and said church split at the same time.

As we were driving to a job one day, we drove by Mt Sinai church, one of the guys ask "what kind of church is that?" I said I think it was a Baptist church, he said I don't much think so, it must be a cult church. I ask him why he thought that, it turns out that, according to him, sinai (cyanide) is the gas used in gas chamber executions.

There's a Second Baptist in Roxabel. The town is just a tiny crossroads and it's the only church there.

There's a church on a backroad in AR that we pass on our way to my in-laws. The name of the church is "Holy Church of the Disturbed Ghost".

We never stop in that town.

Not the actual name of the church, but there is a lone church out in the middle of nowhere in IL that is pretty large and instead of a cross on the roof like most, it has a HUGE pale green neon cross on it.

We call it the "Church of the Neon Cross" :p

theres a 'Bright Morning Star Baptist Church' here.

The funny one is 'The Christian Church'.

ummm, yeah, cuz it wouldnt be a church unless it was 'christian'. It would be a synagoge or mosque or something.

Just a few months back there was an actual headline about a car wreck in Arkansas------first, you should know that Gassville is a town near Flippin Arkansas-----the headline said, "Gassville man hit by Flippin woman"!!!

When we lived in Tampa there was a drive-in church called the Discipleship Church. It was at a converted drive-in movie lot and the cars pulled up to the little posts with the speakers attached and hung them on their windows to hear the preaching. The pulpit was the front half of a pretty good sized boat (maybe a 40 footer) and there on the prow of the ship was where the preacher stood.

Lest you think this frivolous, keep in mind that Tampa was also frequently referred to as God's Waiting Room, since there was such a large population of elderly residents. The Discipleship Church was originally intended for people with limited mobility so that they could be helped into their car once and not have to go from car to wheelchair to pew to wheelchair to car. However, when we lived there, the last row was composed of those long spaces where people can and did drive in with their trailered boats or campers, listen to the service, and be on their merry way.

We never got the chance to attend, but I always thought it was kind of a neat idea for a church.
