First United Methodist to celebrate 175th
The First United Methodist Church of Holly Springs, which was founded in 1837, will observe its 175th anniversary with services and celebration on Sunday, Oct. 28.
Holly Springs First Methodist is considered the “Mother Church” of the North Mississippi conference.
The day will begin with an informal reunion and welcome time at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary, with services to follow at 11 a.m. The Reverend Andy May, Methodist district superintendent of the Senatobia district, will be the guest minister. After the service, a luncheon will be served to members and guests in the fellowship hall.
At 2 p.m., a special program of sacred music will be presented by Catherine and Christian Feazell, members of the Chancel Choir. Lee Bell, church organist, will be the accompanist. The program will be dedicated to the memory of Martha Hurdle McAlexander, a long-standing member of both the church and the church choir.
“It’s going to be a big day,” said pastor Milton Whatley.
Invitations have been sent to former members and ministers whose locations were known.
