The church was constructed in the 1860s under the guidance of Reverend Wendell McFall. His sermons declared the existence of God’s Second Son- whose mission it is to undo all of Jesus’ work on Earth. But when he sacrificed a child to support his rantings, his congregation hung him from the rafters of his own sanctuary.
For twenty years, the red church has stood empty. Crumbling to ruin, it has become a site for Halloween pranks and the setting for ghost stories- including one about the thing that lives in the bell tower, a creature being blamed for a brutal murder that occurred in the church’s graveyard.
Now Archer McFall has purchased the church to house his Temple of Two Sons- whose zealous worshippers will stop at nothing to see the Second Son return to his rightful glory.
