Sitting comfortably on a well-worn pew in the old Savoy Methodist Church, you can almost hear the sounds made by generations of congregational members. Surely the men’s low voices, the children’s laughter, and the women’s lyrical soprano tones intermingled through the years in countless hymns, liturgies, studies, and prayers.
Today, the old church, now known as Savoy Sanctuary, is returning to life with Christian worship, prayer and hymns again echoing within its walls, thanks to its new congregation, The Way Christian Fellowship of Savoy. (For information about worship services, contact www.followtheway.org). On Sunday mornings, you can even hear the beautiful tones of the original 1878 church bell ring throughout the town before each service.
