When Chula Baptist Church in Chula, Missouri disbanded as a congregation, they donated the building (pictured here) to the Linn-Livingston Baptist Association. When Calvary Baptist Church in nearby Chillicothe sought to replant the Chula church, they cleaned out the church building only to find that it had become home to a hive of honeybees. Still, they worked hard to get the building back in shape, and now 20-25 people meet to worship in the rural town of 200 people. Photo submitted
