Faith Chapel, Georgia








Faith Chapel Est. 1904
Jekyll Island, Georgia

Faith In Community
(this sign is posted outside of the church, figured I would share the words...)
At the peak of the winter season the community of Jekyll Island Club was at time rather large - and it quickly outgrew its original chapel. In the new chapel not only the members worshiped, but employees and guests were also found among the choir and congregation.

Only the Club family enjoyed a wedding at Faith Chapel, but many employees used the chapel for weddings. Several baptisms and even a few funerals were held in the church.

It was not open for visitors ...it was under construction / repair? I was so curious, what is that statement? "curiosity kills the cat" ... will it about killed Beth?? I did google it ...and what a beauty, the ceiling, would have been so cool 2 see, how horrible to not get to see it in person when we were right there??! I'm happy to see what it was like, thanks you the folks who added their pics online? I am not sure if they were (or are) going to try to save it, or what? ((If you are curious as well, please go to the google and look it up, I am guessing they are just individuals' photos and google has all piled them together??!)) There were no signs saying what was happening? Just that it was under construction and u were not allowed in!!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

I've been to Jekyll Island many times, as I grew up not far from Savannah. Jekyll is one of my favorite places, as is St. Simon's Island. There's so much beauty and history there. I enjoyed your post very much, Liz!

...it look good for weathering over 100 years of hurricanes each fall. It's nice to have you back, Beth.

Do like that church and love th egargoyle, never seen them on sa church from the US before
I agree, really odd seeing gargoyles on a building like this. Don't you hate when you can't see inside!! Happened this week to us, had a fleeting thought I should go back on a Sunday...
