MILLSAP MATTERS: Holders Chapel hosting sunrise service

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As spring tries to break forth, plans are in the works by area churches to celebrate Easter. Holders Chapel Methodist Church invites everyone to their Sunrise Service on Easter Day (March 31).

The service will begin at 7 a.m., and the message will be brought by the pastor of Millsap First Baptist Church. Breakfast will follow at 8 a.m. For those who enjoy hunting eggs Midpoint Chapel (2312 South FM 113) invites kids and their families to join them for this activity on March 24. The party will start at 3 p.m. and a hotdog meal will be served. There will be a special worship service to wrap up the evening. Sounds like some good plans for celebrating this very special holiday.

On another note from Holders Chapel, the church family invites everyone to join them for their Spring Festival on April 20. The day will begin on the church grounds at 7 a.m. with a yard sale. There will be a bake sale and silent auction. For lunch a hamburger ($6) or hotdog ($5)  plate, including a drink, can be enjoyed. There will be a beautiful queen-sized quilt raffled off, so with all of this to choose from go out and join these folks for some good items and a good time!

Mrs. Fay Fisher, a member of the pioneer DeBusk family, recently passed away. While she was listed as a Weatherford resident her roots were in the Soda Springs community. Condolences to her sons Larry, Ronny, Mike and other family members.

Two well-known young men from the community recently joined the military. Tyler French, son of Jamie and Diana French, has chosen the Army reserve. Jonathan Cribbs, son of John and Stephanie Brents, has been accepted by the Marine Corps. Both are graduates of Millsap High School and will soon be leaving for basic training. We are very proud of them both and are thankful that they have made the decision to join those who protect our nation.
