Three Crosses
Three large wooden crosses, which serve as a constant reminder of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, are mounted on the north interior wall of the newly built Ministries Activity Center of First United Methodist Church in Lamesa. Those crosses were made from the wooden doors that opened into the sanctuary of the old church building, which was demolished early last year to make way for the new construction.
