“The Friendly Church.”
Rev. L. P. Bryant, Pastor.
— Last Sunday was a very fine
day at St. John’s. The spiritual
aspect of the service was very
Rood and the collection fair.
The Sunday school started with
a good attendance. Rev. Bryant
preached both morning and even
ing. The choir and Rev. Bryan*,
wife and a few friends went to
the F. E. R. A. shelter in the af
ternoon to have service. It prov
ed very fruitful.
There wore about five people
to join the church during the day
at St. John’s. The church is al
ways glad to have new member-*
come and cast their lot with those
who are trying to live for Christ.
It always seems fine to have peo
ple come to give service for the
Master while they are young and
in good health.
The captains of the rally groups
are still moving up their cars. See
your captain and play pour part
so your car can move that much
faster. Miss Amanda Offutt is
si ill in lead, with Mrs. Georgia
Borders running a close second.
The Lincoln group was very
pleased with the Historical Tea
during such busy times when
there are so many other things
going on.
On March 31 there will be one
of the biggest musical treats the
citizens of Omaha have ever had
the chance to see and hear. On

will be about 300 or 400 people
in a big spring musical at St
John’s A. M. E. church. You will
read more about this in later is
sues of The Guide.
Next Friday, March h, at St.
John’s A. M. E. Church the Jolly
28 is giving a tea sponsored by
the Omar Bakery, starting

25th and Decatur S‘s.
Rev. 0. A. Calhoun, pastor
Alice E. Hnter, reporter.
The bad weather seems to
have no terror for the members
of Cleaces Temple. They were
present in quite large numbers.
Rev. Calhoun preached from the
text, “Blessed are the meek, for
they shall inherit the earth." His
sermon contained good logic and
practical views.
The Sunday School was largely
attended with Mr. Adams, the
superintendent ,at his post. They
held a party last Friday night
for the pupils and had a grand
time. Mrs. Adams is sponsoring
a tea at her home, 2601 Grant St.

22nd and Seward Sts.
Rev. E. H. Hilson, Pastor
The day at Salem started with
a very good Sunday school attend
ance. I wish to commend the nice
crowd present at all services.
A very seasoning message was
brought to us by the acting pas
tor, Rev. Fort. He took his text
from Luke, 10:20. His subject
was “Heaven.” Some outstanding
nourishing thoughts were as fol
lows: “One of the things over
which to rejoice is whether or not
our names are written in heaven
with the blood of our Savior.
Persons who profess to be dis
ciples of the Lord are worse than
the non-converts, and they mere
ly attend church as a habit. Al
though everyone’s name is writ
ten either on the book of Death
or of everlasting Life, there are a
number of names on the church
book that are not on the book
of Life.”
The twTo outstanding soloists of
the day were Mrs. Edna Single
ton and Mrs Elizabeth Martin,
respectively of the choir.
Visitors present were Misses
Ruth Burleson, Julia Williams,
Slaughter, Mr. and Mrs. Pruett,
and Mrs Mayham, gospel singer
from Paradise Baptist Church.

auspices, of the B. Y. P. U. finance

candy to the winner with the high
est finances, Group No. 5.
The pie sale, conducted by Mrs
Matthews and Mrs. Alexander
was a huge success. Mr. M W.
Harrison purchased five pies. No
ting that it is pleasing to see such
fine demonstrations of coopera
tion throughout the church.
Group No. 7 rendered a devo
tional program. Those taking part
were Ruth Crane, Mrs. Smith and
Mrs. Mayham. The entertainment
was composed of a reading a quo
tation and a beautiful song. The
special feature was given by Miss
Ada Roach. The object and the
pledge were given by Mr. Sol
