Family Worship Church History

Pleasant Hill

Pleasant Hill, Missouri is a community full of rich heritage. The city was chartered in 1855; however, the community was thriving long before that time. At the corner of Wright & Main streets,  William and Melinda Wright established a three story brick inn/tavern that was a popular stop for travelers.  It was said to have a beacon atop a 12-foot pole that welcomed travelers to town.

Today, the National Weather Service of Pleasant Hill acts as a beacon that provides information about approaching storms. Many may have heard the interrupting statement “. . . the National Weather Service of Pleasant Hill has issued a ….” This warning is issued for people to take shelter from an imminent storm.

The most important “Beacon” that lights the streets of Pleasant Hill is the beacon of hope that shines from 1210 North Highway 7. In 1999, the empty building, located at the corner of Wright & Highway 7, opened for service. Family Worship Church is a place to honor God by loving people through real life experiences. The “Beacon” is the light of God’s love giving hope and truth in today’s storms of life.
