This is our cute little church in Stanhope, IA. I took it on a really dreary day (1/11/08) but it's still cute. We are a denomination of two faiths, Disciples of Christ, and United Methodists, from two different churches that originally each had their own buildings in Stanhope, but when we moved here (1997) they were already 'merged'.
It's a great place, where we (Presbyterians by nature in Des Moines) were welcomed heartily, and where my kids were confirmed and were guided by great people and grew to into decent adults (so far, at least, but they're only 20 and 21). Their presence in our lives has been an ongoing blessing and I treasure those people.
