Memphis is often called "The City of 1000 Churches" or the "City of Churches". There are many beautiful places of worship in Memphis, and one of those is Grace St. Luke's Episcopal Church.

This church was created in 1940 as a result of a merger of Grace Church (founded in 1850 and Memphis' second Episcopal church) and St. Luke's Church (founded in 1894). This church is located at the corner of Peabody and Belvedere in the Central Gardens area of Midtown Memphis, has an active community outreach and missions program, and also Grace St. Luke's School for children in grades pre-school through 8th grade. I attended nursery school at age 3 at Grace St. Luke's, so it is a special place for me.

That is an awesome church. We don't have anything close to that beautiful in Kissimmee! Great photos!
