MILLSAP MATTERS: Local fall festivals dot the October calendar


Midpoint Chapel will be celebrating its 15th anniversary as a church family on Nov. 10. Recently several families from the church traveled to Lawton, Okla., for a very edifying weekend retreat.

Upon returning, several from the church spent three afternoons at Mineral Wells Health and Rehab Center providing a VBS Fall Faith Festival for residents there. This was a wonderful event with Bible study and activities enjoyed by many of the residents.

The church family will celebrate its anniversary with Sunday school at 10 a.m., worship service at 11 a.m., and a potluck lunch with an afternoon service to follow. The afternoon service will feature the singing of the Bryant family, well known in the Mineral Wells area for a number of years through the heritage of Billye Bess Bryant Flores.

While the church had its beginnings in a three-room house in Millsap, it has been located

for the last 14 years at 2304 South FM Road 113, Millsap. Everyone is invited to this special day as the church family gives special thanks to the Lord for His many blessings across the last 15 years. 

A new assisted-living facility recently opened its doors in Mineral Wells. Serenity Estates is the dream of cousins Lori Hopper and Michael Bates, and they brought this facility into being to honor their beloved late grandmother, who was very special to them. This residence is located at the site of the former Resort Lodge, 401 N.W. 4th St. It has many amenities and tours are offered. For more info call (940) 325-3744. Hope this helps someone who needs this service.

Millsap Heritage Society is looking toward the Christmas month as the log cabins will be the focal point of the city Christmas celebration on Dec. 14. The society members will have their next regular meeting on Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. at Heritage Park (Log Cabin grounds). These folks are always improving the cabins and grounds, and the latest addition is a glass case in one of the cabins for any items that need to be keep in such protection. If you have any type of donation call (940) 682-5331.

Early voting starts Oct. 21 and for those of the Millsap area the closest place to vote early is the Old Administation Building in Brock.
