Which category for this?

122 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I located a church called Vertical Church after some research I found the website for "Vertical Church"  stating they are Southern Baptists. 

Okay, It is a Baptist Church. 

However I found an article Shooting the Breeze Re: New church hopes to take root in Pincher Creek "Vertical Church is an autonomous Protestant church affiliated with the Mennonites".

Does this make it a Mennonite Church? No category for Mennonite places of worship. 

The plot thickens: The Amish, Hutterites and Mennonites are direct descendants of the early Anabaptist movement so have we come full circle and it is a Baptist Church?

As a side note: Though this is call Vertical Church I do not believe it is part of the "Vertical Church (Southern Baptist)"  group described in the article above. 

Also in the above noted link "Shooting the Breeze" it states: "The name Vertical Church reflects their idea that “everything points to Jesus, so everything’s pointing up.” "

Also this was previously named: Foothills Community Church which was a  Mennonite Brethren Church.which began in 1947.

Okay which is it a Baptist Church or a Mennonite Church? Or none of the above.

I do admit I am not familiar with Mennonite, Southern Baptist, or Anabaptist theologies.

Your insights are appreciated.

For the Continental Reformed and Congregational Church waymark category, we use the following wikipedia site.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Christian_denominations#Calvinism

That same site correctly places Brethren and Mennonite congregations under Anabaptism.  Because Waymarking does not have a category for Anabaptism denomination's church buildings, does that not place them as "other places of worship" under the religious building multifarious Waymarking category?

Southern Baptist is Baptist.

elyob, thank you for your reply. 

However, I am still a little confused. Will the referenced "Vertical Church" be accepted in the CRaCC category? Based on the Anabaptist connection with the Mennonite Brethren Church and according to the comment in the article referenced  "Shooting the Breeze" "Vertical Church is an autonomous Protestant church affiliated with the Mennonites".

Sorry to confuse, the CRaCC has nothing to do with the Mennonites, Brethren or any Anabaptist church.  I simply mention the CRaCC because there is already a link being used by the Waymarking community to determine which church can be accepted in a building category.  More to follow...

Your Vertical Church building should twice qualify in the religious building multifarious category.  As an autonomous church, it can be considered non-denominational.  As an affiliate of the Mennonite tradition, it can be considered Anabaptist.  Both non-denominational and Anabaptist church buildings should be in religious building multifarious as there is no other Waymarking home for either.

 I have updated the RBM (Religious Buildings Multifarious)

This category will now accept: Anabaptist. Including: Amish (actually they do not have churches), Hutterites, Mennonites, Schwarzenau Brethren, Bruderhof, and Apostolic Christian Churches. Excluded are Quaker Meeting Houses. I included a Wikipedia link as a guide to Anabaptism with information about the acceptable places of worship. We will also accept: Doukhobor places of worship (not part of the Anabaptist but an autonomous group), usually referred as: Prayer Houses.

Please note: Anabaptist are not Baptist Churches.

I'm not sure I get the word "engulfed". Are they underwater or are they on islands in the lake?

Phillipe - if the towns are underwater, I think maybe you are out of luck, unless the towns have Wikipedia entries. Maybe news article locations? Wierd story locations?

 

We have lakes that have engulfed towns in Texas, but many times they reappear and can be visited when lake levels change and the towns "rise again". Once exposed, many of these towns will be visitsble for years.

Hi Philippe,

I wish there was a category for such things as there are several now submerged towns south of us that were inundated when the Grand Coulee Dam was built on the Columbia River in the 1930s. The lake that was formed, Lake Roosevelt, stretches from the dam to the Canada-US border and has submerged possibly a dozen towns. Some of the towns were partially or wholly moved to higher ground.

Another case is north of us; Arrow Lakes and the Hugh Keenleyside dam, again on the Columbia River. At low water one can see remnants of a couple of these towns.

Wikipedia says. "Construction of dams has produced ghost towns that have been left underwater."

So why not list them in the "Ghost town" category?

I'd love to see these inundated towns there - I've visited several in Texas and along the MX border 

https://www.texasobserver.org/bluffton-texas-lost-civilization-rises-from-lake-buchanan/

I'll reach out to the Ghost towns category managers to make sure they know about this thread. :) 

Here's the email I sent:

Hey Bean Team :) The Ghost town category is being discussed in the forums, in the thread "What category for this?" on page 3. Do y'all accept inundated towns? I have photos of at least 2 Texas towns that were inundated by dam construction that are/can be exposed and that I have visited, and which anyone can visit when they're out. We'd love to see a category officer weigh in on this topic over there -- Thanks :)

Thanks for the invite to the topic. 

 

They fit perfectly in the Ghost Towns category. It would fit under the "Human Caused Disaster" variable.

We have a beer cellar in our town.  Not a brewpub, like I usually find when I do a search for this term, but an underground cellar, with a door and stone structure built into the side of a hill.  This is a notable pace in our village, but were on earth do I place it?  I'm about to mark it in  "Dated Architectural Structures Multifarious".  It's a storage area that has been around for at least 100 years and is now used by the local garden society, still as storage.  Thanks for any help on this one.

Does it have a date inscribed on it? Is it stand alone? If so, it may be better in Dated buildings and cornerstones. 

Is this cellar all that is left of a brewery? If so it could go in preserved architectural remnants and ruins.

Can you please post a photo?

Unfortunately, I cannot post it.  Even though the file shows it is less than 2MB, when I try to add it, the site says it's too large.  I can place it under dated buildings then.  It is dated and stands alone.  It's a storage cellar and always was, not part of another building.  It's the old-fashioned way of store food, or in this case beer, for the whole town.  Thanks for the category. :-)

BIERKELLER

 

können Touristische Attraktionen sein. Wenn nur e i n Bierkeller im Umkreis von rund 20 km vorhanden ist und spektakulär genug ist, gibt es die Kategorie "Superlatives", falls in der Denkmalliste des Ortes kann natürlich der Bierkeller auch dort "beheimatet" werden... Noch Fragen ??

Danke.  Ich denke "Dated Buildings" ist die beste.  Unsere Bierkeller ist special in dem Dorf und die "ONLY", aber nicht super special. :-)  Danke alles für die Hilfe.
