Annual Mother's Day service at the site where Mother's Day began will be in the early afternoon hours on Sunday, May 13, 2012.  When the first service was conducted on May 10, 1908, this historic structure was Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church.  In the early 1960's, the church merged with other local Methodist congregations and a new church building was constructed.  The non profit International Mother's Day Shrine Foundation was incorporated to oversee and maintain the historic building where Mother's Day began.  The building later received official designation as a National Historic Landmark. Today it is a museum to motherhood and Mother's Day and community center for Afternoon of Music events in conjunction with the Arts Council. Other community functions are conducted throughout the year, as well as weddings.
