Churches in Honey Grove
(and a few more houses)

This, of course, is our church, McKenzie United Methodist Church.

Honey Grove is the home of many other churches which differ in size, style and age, much as they differ in approach, worship and theology. McKenzie is the only one that has a red roof, but others are unique in their own way, too. Along the way to taking pictures of the churches (a few still to come) I spotted some interesting houses, too. I've included them in the tour.

As usual, click on the small thumbnail pictures for a larger view of each.

This is the 1st Baptist Church. It's been around most of Honey Grove's history, along with a couple of other churches. See the historical plaque in the next photo.

Read the history.

This was the Episcopal (Anglican) church, but it no longer has a congregation. The building is owned and maintained by the Hall-Voyer Foundation.

One of my favorite kinds of houses, with a wrap-around porch.

The Presbyterian Church, along the main road through town.

Another majestic house nearby.

This striking structure is notable inasmuch as it is still occupied. Note the presence of a satellite dish.

St. James Baptist Church, located on the south side of Honey Grove.

Across the road from St. James church are grain silos, from which different kinds of grains are mixed for cattle and other types of feed.

This is Westside Baptist Church, a very active evangelical congregation.

Landmark Missionary Baptist Church is located on the far westen edge of Honey Grove.

The Assembly of God church unfortunately has a "for sale" sign in front of it, as well as one in the van parked nearby.

This fine structure is along the main road through town, giving passing motorists a certain impression of our fair town.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is one of the older churches in town. This type of building is very common in early 20th century rural churches.

The Church of Christ is also along the main road, close to the Christian church. The two denominations came from the same roots, but differ significantly in worship style.

The wayside pulpit always has a pithy sermonette.

The CME church is on the west side of town, south of SH 56. The Christian Methodist Episcopal church denomination was founded in 1870 by former slaves who wished to have control of their own church. Their web site is www.c-m-e.org

Ending the tour (for now) is St. Luke's Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod).

Forest Hill United Methodist Church is about seven miles northeast of Honey Grove. Ann preaches there every Sunday in addition to McKenzie UMC in Honey Grove.
