Brief Description of Subject: The ship of the church has a good captain at its helm, Jesus Christ. The word Nave used for the central section of a church in which the congregation is seated comes from the Latin word for Ship. Sailing is a major recreation activity for young and old in Bay View. The bulrush or cattail is a lowly thickly clustered common plant growing near water.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
