When Madeira Beach's Church by the Sea was founded, it quickly gained fame for the beacon placed on the Spanish tower's mast, which was meant, literally, to guide fishermen safely home, and metaphorically, to lead the community towards its spiritual embrace. Today, the widespread popularity of a video game has put this church on the map for all the wrong reasons. Employees of the church are not amused by the moniker 'Chicken Church', so given because the exterior of this place of worship strongly resembles Red Bird from the runaway hit, Angry Birds. No matter when you visit, you are sure to catch flocks of tourists snapping away at this avian wonder.
