This is the oldest church building in the state of North Carolina in New Bern. They are still an active parish. The impulse to worship runs deep in most societies around the world and a Christian perspective was the dominant position as the country grew and found its identity as an independent nation. (I made an error on this section, the town is Bath, not New Bern. Still learning my new state.)
"Sing to him; yes, sing his praises. Tell everyone about his wonderful deeds.
Exult in his holy name; rejoice, you who worship the lord.
Search for the lord and for his strength; continually seek him." I Chronicles 19:9-11 NLT
