Clark’s Chapel ~~ The congregants of this old time country church, that now exists in the middle of the suburbs, take great pride in their place of worship, as this image shows.

“There’s a little white church in the valley
That stands in my memory each day
And it seems I can hear the bells now ringing
Though I am many miles away
“And many times in church on Sunday morning
That whole countryside would gather there
They would all kneel down by the altar
As they lifted up their voice in prayer

“They would sing the old song Rock of Ages
Oh Christ let me hide myself in thee
And I know some of them are now waiting
Just o’er the dark and stormy sea

“I know that troubles all are ended
And happy forever they will be
They are waiting and watching up yonder
For the coming home of you and me”

~~”Little White Church” by Jimmy Martin

Clark’s Church is one of those “little white churches” yet found on Virginia byways and highways. This one can be seen from Rolling Road, in the Saratoga area of Springfield, Virginia, July 2006.
