Church of Scientology - downtown Ocala

John Travolta owns a home just outside of Ocala. He is often in the Ocala area. John Travolta is also a dedicated follower of the religion of Scientology. He recently purchased a building in the downtown area which was renovated as a Church of Scientology. I would guess there are very few Scientologists in Ocala. Perhaps this is an attempt to increase their numbers. It is, as the sign says, a "mission."

En France c'est pas considéré comme une église, mais plus-tot comme une secte assez dangereuse, je suis toujours surpris qu'elle soit considérer comme église aux USA

Store front is appropriate as they are selling a bill of goods...

None like I have ever seen. Guess they just want to advertise more.

I don't know much about Scientology, but their followers are supposed to be dedicated. Nice shot.

I agree with Olivier. Over here, it is considered a sect and as such, outlawed.

Interesting. I didn't know Travolta had ties to Ocala. I bet the scientologists will have a hard time beating out the baptists though! ;)

Well if he was trying to make it appealing, he has succeeded. It's a very nice building with welcoming signage.

Thanks for the comments on my header. I did use Photoshop to do it. It's actually a fairly simple process (involving creating each letter as a separate layer), but it does take a little time.

Doesn't look much like a church but it is attractive. I like the yellow and white striped awning.
If you attend a service, you might be able to get a shot of John. Or not.
