    Are there two front doors? Why?

    • Lynn Pollard

      Back then, the women sat on one side of the church and the men sat on the other. They had their own entrances.

    My Great Grandfather, Rev. Thaddeus Constantine Crawford was Pastor at Sardis Presbyterian Church for 38 years beginning in 1846 or 1847
