The “Old Brick Church” or Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Mooresville, Alabama
Using handmade bricks, workers completed construction of the church building in 1839.
Over the years, Methodist and Baptist denominations have also worshipped in this building.
Regular worship services have not been held in the church since the 1960s. In 1994, the United Methodist Church held a deconsecration service and the town took ownership. These grist mill stones now rest along the front sidewalk of the church.
Stand on your tip-toes and peer through the third window (from left) to see the inside door.
As a unique wooden steeple, the hand pointing to heaven fell in the 1990s. A replica was installed in 2005.

Zeke learned how to move a mountain one flake at a time.
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
—Mark 11:23, 24 KJV
“And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.”
—Mark 6:56 KJV
