Please enjoy this exclusive look inside this wonderful church! What wonders are in store for us? Wonder no more by watching my video…
A HUGE THANKS TO PASTOR BRETT CODY FOR OFFERING THIS WONDERFUL TOUR!!

Hezekiah Scovel erected the Whiting meetinghouse in 1811 in Whiting village. In 1832 residents remodeled it, adding the projecting central pavilion, two-stage belfry tower and steeple, and Greek Revival style entries, corner pilasters, and full entablature at the eaves.” – PP 4 and 5
