If you see this image and it looks to you like it is an office building, you are not alone. I’m not sure if this structure began as an office and was converted to a church or perhaps it was built in this form for its functionality. I would never have guessed its ecclesiastical function except for the oversized lettering, Iglesia Maranatha, on the building.

This just goes to show that churches today literally come in all shapes and sizes. Visit Manchaca, the settlement south of Austin, and there are several churches in the center of the town. Among them is this structure. There’s no information about their facilities on line but yes, this is also a church.
