Steeple Sunday #20: Millbrook United Methodist


This is the second Methodist Church that has absolutely nothing on their website about their history. By looking through their photo gallery, I was able to found out the recently celebrated the 140th anniversary. The church was founded in 1870...so it is older than Millbrook
Baptist that was featured last week.

This is a view of the front door from across the street. As you can see from this picture, the outside of the older section of the church has beautiful stone work.


What an inviting front entrance. I really like the stone and border around the door.


This is the side courtyard with a very pretty brick fence and care was taken to keep all the lovely trees that surround the church. We used to live in the area so we've watched it expand several times of the years. It sits on several acres of land on the corner of E. Millbrook and Old Wake Forest Road.

Note from Madi: Mom is in serious trouble....she didn't tell me the whole truth about Baby Showers. Please tune in tomorrow for the rest of the story....

  4. Hi Madi & Mom,

    We really like the stone work on this church. All the trees surrounding it give the church a very quaint look.

    Madi, we hope your mom isn't in too much trouble but we can't wait to get the scoop on this story.

    Purrs & Hugs,
    Cindi and her Mom

    PS, the flowers in my header photo are Teasel. I was going to do a piece on it for Today's Flowers but changed my mind at the last second.

  5. This is a lovely looking church and grounds. It is surprising that as it is an older church that they don't give it's history.
    Madi, what have you found out about the baby shower?

  6. That's a beauty. We love the stone. Now, however, we're all curious about that baby shower.

    lotsa licks, Lola
