Pleasant Springs Mother’s Day/Homecoming May 9
Pleasant Springs United Methodist Church will celebrate Mother’s Day/Homecoming on May 9. Pleasant Springs became a church in the late 1880s. Since there were no gravel or black top roads, there were few church services during the rainy and cold months, so by agreement of the church congregation, their all day homecoming for each year would be the second Sunday of May. For that one day each year, the families came in wagons, walked or rode horses to church. Everyone brought food and spent the day in worship and fellowship! A morning service and afternoon service were provided. Homecoming at Pleasant Springs Church will be celebrated for the 140th time this year, missing only one year last year due to COVID. As many of you know, Mother’s Day is also celebrated on the second Sunday in May, as if has been since 1914 when the President of the United States signed to officially name the second Sunday in May Mother’s Day, so please join us in our Homecoming and Mother’s Day this year on Sunday, May 9. Church services will begin at 11 a.m. with dinner to be shared on the church grounds/fellowship hall. We look forward to seeing you at Pleasant Springs Methodist Church.
