This little church is located in the very small community of Glendale Springs, which is off of the Blue RIdge Parkway via Trading Post Road. The parking for visiting the church is across the street in a paved parking lot also serving the bakery and a really nice local crafts shop or in the unimproved grass parking area just north of the church a few feet.
The set up is similar to the church in West Jefferson that houses the same artist's work. This work of art features "The Last Supper" and is just excellent. By all means sit through the recorded welcome and history of the work. The short recording goes thru each of the disciples at the Last Supper ending Thomas- who is indeed looking at everyone in the church. One of those works of art that gives you pause to reflect on our higher calling and creation. The button to start the recording is located in the small vestibule at the front of the church.
Outside the church are some really nice grounds to walk around as you make your way to the basement for additional works of art.
All in all, the two churches are a pleasure and an honor to sit and reflect upon the beautiful and meaningful works of art that they have opened up to the public. Highly recommended. There is no fee but a donation box in the vestibule.
While there take in the crafts store across the street and the Trading Post on the Parkway.
