"A hand on a steeple – a finger lifted heavenward, symbolic of the church’s ministry of pointing the way to God; pointing the lost to the Savior; pointing the Christian to God’s full measure of love; pointing the discouraged to the source of peace; and pointing the indifferent to the One he has forgotten. A hand on a steeple – reminding its members of a responsibility and a glorious privilege – symbolic of our hands dedicated to point the way to God through our Lord, Jesus Christ."
I found this on a site for a Baptist church in Georgia - maybe the one you found. So, the German church theory is probably not going to help after all. Well, one thing for sure, it wasn't a Catholic church! So, it had to be a Protestant church of some denomination. Wonder if it's still there? You've definitely aroused my curiosity.
