ROUTE OPTION 1
Take US 63 south from Rochester. When you get the to T-intersection at Hwy 16, turn left to continue on 63. When you get to Spring Valley, 63 makes a right turn. (There may or not be a construction detour. Just follow the signs.) When you cross into Iowa you will be in Chester. (Watch the speed limits!) Lime springs is 4 miles farther. Turn left to Lime Springs at the Casey's store. When you come into town, you'll be on Merrill Street. Turn left on Center Street, and then a right on Main. The church will be on the right.
ROUTE OPTION 2
This is the way I go. It's prettier and almost as fast. Take County Hwy 1 south out of Rochester. (This is 11th Avenue SE that goes past Mayo High School.) When you get to the stop sign in Spring Valley, turn left on Hwy 16. Go about 6 miles to County Hwy 5 and turn right (toward Forrestville & Mystery Cave). There will be a 3 stop-signs and you'll go through Cherry Grove. Turn left on County Hwy 44 and go for about 1 mile, and then right on Hwy 5 again. There will be a sign indicating a right turn to Lime Springs, IA. When you cross the state line you'll be on County Hwy V36. This will take you into Lime Springs. As you go through town, that street will eventually become Center Street. Turn left on Main. The church is on the right.
