Churches Across Atlanta

If there’s one time a week that Atlanta is indisputably Southern, it’s Sunday morning. According to Gallup, 48 percent of Georgians consider themselves “very religious,” meaning faith plays an important role in their daily lives and that they attend services almost weekly. On Sundays now in Atlanta, every retail business except Chick-fil-A seems to be open and you can even buy a six-pack at the liquor store.

SMYRNA, Ga. - A Smyrna church is celebrating a significant birthday. The Log Cabin Community Church, located on Log Cabin Road, has survived war and fought a street-widening project.

They've made it 100 years with the help and the support of the community.

Judy Whitfield is a member of the church. She says the first Sunday service started on June 2nd, 1912. The 43 families who attended that service had to bring something to sit on. The church didn't have enough chairs.

Drivers heading south on Atlanta Road near Vinings and I-285 will notice — if they’re paying attention — a little log cabin on the left. What they’re seeing is one of Cobb’s older and more notable houses of worship.

A Chrismon tree is a variation of the Christmas tree that uses handcrafted ornaments, traditionally white and gold in color, which are representative of Christianity. The idea was that of a member of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, Va., in the late 1950s, who wanted decorations deemed fit for her church’s Christmas tree.

The church’s origins as an education center are lived out today, through topical sermon series like the current one:  “Life-Changing Actions: 10 things to do to change your life.” Landers explores what the Bible says about topics such as listening, reading, and meditating, and offers practical life applications.

The church is the birthplace of Boy Scout Troop 1, which continues to meet, and hosts several Girl Scout troops. Members support MUST Ministries with weekly collections.
