This was a much-needed time for our small ones; they learned a lot while having a good time.
Midpoint Chapel will be celebrating their 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 their 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 Farm Market 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 Northwest 4th St.
