“Church isn’t where you meet. Church isn’t a building. Church is what you do. Church is who you are. Church is the human outworking of the person of Jesus Christ. Let’s not go to Church, let’s be the Church.” --Bridget Willard
Driving into downtown Charleston, you can't help but notice the church steeples towering above the city. The churches throughout the Holy City are as beautiful as they are rich in history and architectural design. What I love about Charleston is not just the number of churches but the diversity of religions represented and different architecture in each church.
After a recent trip south to Sheldon, I realized Charleston is not the only place in South Carolina in which to find historic churches. I traveled throughout the area finding churches both interesting not only in their design but also in their history. What I found was a group of churches, some still used others in ruins but all with a story to tell.
