Remember, this group is for is small churches. Small town preferred, but we're not -too- strict on that. We -are- strict on the "small churches" part though. :-)

Please... either geotag or put in your tags where the church is located, so that others might visit and have a look. (This is not a requirement, but a request) Thanks!

Group Description

Welcome to the "That Old Time Religion (Small Churches)" group.

I'm not an overly religious person, but I do like the old churches, the architecture, the friendly feeling, and the history. Too many of the old churches are disappearing and are being replaced by the very big churches or chrome, glass and steel monstrosities. No matter how welcome they make you feel on the inside, it just doesn't have “That Old Time Religion” feeling, or the simple warmth & spirituality of them.

Here's a bit of a guideline for you:

• Small churches only. Just the church, please. If you have multiple shots of the same church, decide which is your best and post that one. Your photos can be moving, or simply documentary in nature. Either is fine with us.

• No cathedrals, no mammoth churches (in a small town or not), small only. (We're hoping that's pretty simple to understand.) ;-) Also, please don't shoot your small church from a mile away where we have to squint to see that it's somewhere in the photo.

• No graveyards, even if next to a small church, unless it's a photo of the graveyard and the small church next to it.

• Shots of stained glass windows (from inside a small church only) are permitted within reason. (We don't need 15 shots of the same window, please.)

• Church signs? Sure, but only if the small church is also included in the photo.

Anything inappropriate or not pertaining to the topic of this group will be removed. Please keep description or comment language clean, after all, this is a church photo group, and all sorts of people might visit here. I'm not trying to censor, just asking for consideration of others.

If your photograph has been removed, please don't take it personally. Photographs that were removed probably didn't quite fit the group.

So let's see all those old churches from the countryside and in the small towns, the older and the smaller the better... just think about “That Old Time Religion”.

"Give me that old time religion
Tis the old time religion,
Tis the old time religion,
And it's good enough for me....
