Asbury United Methodist Church

Since opening its doors in 1967, the Asbury United Methodist Church has become endearingly known as the "cupcake chapel." That's because architect Mel Ensign supposedly designed the church to resemble a crown for Jesus as well as seed from which life-baring symbols, in this case a cross, are born. Adding to the adorable factor in this pink, west Phoenix church is its size, seating only 74 guests for services presented in the round.
