Andrews Chapel, also known as the McIntosh Log Church, is a historic Methodist church building in McIntosh, Alabama. It is one of only a few remaining log churches in the state. It had its beginning in 1860 when John C. Rush and his wife donated land for the church to the Methodist McIntosh community. The church was built before the year ended. It was named for James Osgood Andrew, a bishop in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.[2]

The squared-log building features square notched corners and a wood shingle roof. A new church building was built in 1952 adjacent to the chapel.[2] The chapel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 20, 1974.[1]
