2015.06.28.0956 Goodbye Wesley Chapel

Farewell, Wesley Chapel. Minister Lucy Jackson-Hughes (seated), members, former members and friends gather for a final picture Sunday, June 28, after the closing service at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church. The  church is in Rockbridge County, Va., between Lexington and Buena Vista. My wife, Linda, and her brothers and sisters were baptized there, grew up there, went to Sunday school and youth group and vacation Bible school. Our daughter and son-in-law were married there. Now the aging and dwindling membership and changing demographics are forcing its closing. Nikon D7100. Rokinon f/3.5 8mm (12mm DX) fisheye. RAW. ISO 800. -1 EV. f/8. 1/10 sec. Click on photo to enlarge.
