This past Sunday, the congregation of Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church celebrated Mother’s Day. The church held a special service to honor not only the mothers in attendance, but for all mothers everywhere.

The Mother’s Day-themed service featured a special Mother’s Day tribute, along with a message from Sister Kathleen Edwards-Dean of Fellowship of Faith Church in Atlanta, Ga.  Edwards-Dean was originally a member of Pilgrim Rest as a youth.

“God blessed us in a beautiful way and I thank God for this young lady that came all the way from Georgia to deliver some knowledge into not only the church, but also the young people,” said Rev. Paul Hart, senior pastor of Pilgrim Rest.

Hart said it was good for the children of the church to see someone who is successful who comes from where they are. He said it always sends a good message to have a former member return, because it brings everything together full circle.

“It was great for them to see her grow and to see that she started right where they are right now,” he said. “She imparted into them, look what God can do, because you might start somewhere, but God has the finish to whatever you start.”

Edwards-Dean’s message was inspired, of course, by Mother’s Day, but she said she also had a special message for the young people in the congregation as well.

“I wanted to honor mothers today and to speak a word from my heart that I believe the Lord would have me to share,” she said. “I was really blessed by the young people’s ministry today and I encourage young people to seek the Lord while He can be found.”

“Mothers are the foundation for the body of Christ,” she continued. It was through a woman that Jesus entered into the world, so I wanted to give grace and honor to all of the mothers on this day.”

Hart added, “We have to bless the mothers because the mothers have that Godly wisdom.”
