The church stopped having regular services in 1929 because the boll weevil destroyed the cotton crops on the surrounding

farms and many of the families moved away.  In 1974 an arsonist burned down the little church.  It was rebuilt in time for the

San Springs Homecoming in July of 1974.  This homecoming has been held for many years and continues into the present.
