We've done our best to create a Web site that anticipates and satisfies our inquirer’s needs. With that goal in mind, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions. If you do not find an answer to your question here, contact us at 540-740-4074 or

QUESTION  I can’t find the church that I am looking for
ANSWER  We have tried to list every church in Shenandoah County that we have found, but we are not infallible. We would welcome the details - particularly the full name and physical address of the church so that we can add it to our list and try to obtain historical details. Our aim is to get EVERY church listed where the building can still be seen. We have not added any home churches at this time but if you belong to one and want to send us details, we will consider adding an additional page

QUESTION When I click on the church, all I see is the photograph and the address                                         ANSWER - This means that we have not received the brief history yet. Where we do have the brief history, the church name is highlited in yellow. See the answer to the next question

QUESTION You do not have the history of the church]
ANSWER We are trying to encourage every church to supply us with a brief history so that it emphasizes what information the church wants to have published. If we write it up ourselves we may miss what is really important in the church’s view. We care very happy to work with the church in any way and would provide the pdf file that we have produced from the information given for checking before it is published on the website.

QUESTION I have old photographs of the church but need assistance in providing them in the format that you can use.
ANSWER We do have scanning capabilities so can provide this service at no cost to you.

QUESTION When I click on the church to see the details nothing happens
ANSWER These are the churches which have not underline under their name. Unfortunately we have not been able to locate these churches in order to photograph them. Are you able to give us an address?
