Freeze Community Church - Freeze, Idaho

Freeze Community Church is located just a few miles north of Potlatch on US Highway 95, in rural Latah County. Over one hundred years ago there was a small pioneer community here, established by John Freeze. This little church came very near a slow demise, but then the community rallied and saved the church. I have had the delight to visit this beautiful pioneer church twice, once in 2008 and again in 2010 on Easter Sunday. My first visit I arrived too late for service but spent several hours wandering the grounds and walking the cemetery, then discovered the church building was unlocked. I went in looked around at everything, sat to pray, sang hymns and spent time reading the Scriptures. My voice echoed around the nearly bare walls and my footsteps caused the hardwood floors to squeak, as have many voices and footsteps before me. Then the quiet afforded time to watch out the windows taking in the wide expanse of fallow wheat and canola fields while contemplating the generations who have gone to glory, whose voices sang, fellowshipped and prayed across the years in this sacred place.

    I grew up in Boise, where there is a Latah Street. I didn’t realize it was also the name of a county. This is a lovely picture of a beautiful subject. So fortunate they saved the church! Your description of your experience inside the building reflects my own inside the churches of Europe. It’s wonderful to partake of a piece of history, don’t you think?
