Unfinished wooden benches. I was always thankful for the backs, instead of the backless benches most Amish use.
Arriving at church Mom and I went inside while Daddy and the boys went out to the barn with the rest of the menfolk until it was time for services to begin. Once everyone had filed in and was seated at their regular spot, men on the right, women on the left, boys on the first four benches in the middle and the girls on the three remaining benches it was time for services to begin.
Two or three slow church songs were sung (taking up to 20 minutes per song) while the ministers went into a little room to pray and discuss what ever it was they were supposed to. Next came the preaching of two sermons and a scripture reading, and then the 15 minute prayer where I tried to keep my knees from creaking. Another slow song and church was over and we could visit with our friends until it was time to go home.
