There are three homes and one church involved in this year’s Pilgrimage tour.
Today we take a look at two of the four stops on the tour.
Heritage Baptist Church
Joy to the World, the Lord is come! Let's celebrate our Savior's birth this Christmas season!
When one takes time to stop and visit Heritage Baptist Church located at 383 Liberty Road in Picayune, they will hear the miraculous stories that tell the wonder of our Savior through our church here in the community.
Heritage Baptist Church, est. in 2007, found its forever home in 2017 on 15 acres with a theme that quickly became known as The Red Barn Church.
As you begin the tour, you'll be amazed at the breathtaking rustic barn wood walls and the rough cut Old Rugged Cross - all made from an old barn that once sat on the church property.
You will find our world map mission board made from reclaimed wood that once was in the old Picayune movie theatre and so many more unique character pieces that help tell the story.
The tour tells the story of the manger to the cross and from the cross to reaching the world through Christ's love to the regions here and beyond.
Take time to linger in the bookstore, learn about their local radio station aired from the church, and enjoy homemade refreshments accompanied with live Christmas music.
Home of Hunter Lumpkin
Nestled in the trees at 723 West Canal Street in Picayune, sits a slice of Picayune history. The home of Hunter Lumpkin, The Elsie Manor, as it is known today, was built in the 1930’s on three city lots.
It was built in the California Bungalow style with a wrap-around porch, gable roof, traditional clapboard siding, unique windows and an open floor plan.
The home’s interior features tall ceilings, special woodworking and moldings, and antiques mixed with modern furnishings.
The spacious home will feature a variety of Christmas decorations, themed by room. Special family heirloom ornaments, crocheted by Mr. Lumpkin’s grandmother, will be featured on one of the many trees on display. Natural garland, mixed with a colorful assortment of ornaments and decorations, will create a joyful and magical scene in the heart of the city.
