How many families can go to the church their ancestors started and attended regularly nearly 126 years ago? A majority of Howitt Family Reunion members attended church at the rural Star Chapel Methodist Church in Empire Prairie, Missouri. The minister invited members to participate in the service which made it very personal. Betty Jo Howitt reported “As I played the organ I could see in my mind my father, his brothers and sister and parents singing in the choir. It was a cherished moment.” Three relatives continue to attend the church.
