To me, there’s nothing more patriotic than a small town flying flags in honor of Freedom. Downtown Rebecca is lined with flags and they look wonderful. And what better to remind us of the best in America than this group of boys walking down a local street, having fun outside. One even has a watermelon.
Pleasant Hill Baptist Church was organized in 1876 by a missionary preacher, James R. Fields, who had several other nearby churches in his charge. At the time of its founding, Rebecca was known as Grover; the present church building dates to circa 1888. One of the more interesting rules of church decorum (essentially a set of governing by-laws): “If any member of the Church shall give a party of dance…they shall consider themselves cited to conference.”
