"During tho years wo havo had tho
prlvilego of presenting to God in holy
baptism 154 children. Wo have re
eelved into the church by adult bap
tlsm and confirmation 136 and by let
ter and transfer 79 adults; total adults
215; grand total 309. Wo havo joined
in marriage to date 99 couples. , Wo
havo had tho prlvilego of taking tho
comforts of the church to tho sorrow

service wo have done It under tho
strongest competition, for during this
time tho other churches of tho city
havo had their strongest pastors some
of whom have been so "popular" that
most everybody has sung their prals
os. And, too, conditions havo changed
both in and out of tho church, which
change has como to pass through tho
multiplying of clubs, with which many
of our people havo identified them
selves and with these clubs divided
their time. But, we must not forget
the financial sido of it. Eight years
ago there was a debt against the
church of $2,400, bearing interest. This
with interest amounted to nearly
$3,000 which has been paid. There is
now abovo $G,200 on hand for the new
church, whlchc totals nearly $10,000
above the regular expenses. You
have paid out for current oxpensos
$21,010 and $4,202 for benevolence,
naking a grand total of $34,418. In
