“The Friendly Church"
Rev. It. A- Adams, Pastor
Thu services at S'. John last Sun
day were very good. The attendant'!
both ai Sunday school and church
was not up to standard as th!
weather was s<> cold. The spiritual
aspect, however, ran high. Rev. Ad
ams was full of the spirit. He took
his text from Jer. 8th chapter and
the 22nd verse. His subject was,
“The Heart of the World is Sick."
From this subject he delivered a
very fine message to those whose
hearts and minds were set to re
The names of the sick members
<>f t he church were not turned in,
hut the known sick tire: Mrs. Mable
Avant, Miss Grace Speese, Mr. Geo.
Althouse, who was in an auto ac
cident. The program of the new ad
ministration shows indications of
much improvement and an outlook
a fine year for St. John. As it
has been said before, it should be
the desire of all members and fri
' uls of St. John to fli in this pro
r am. some ul e rnd work to make
• is a yen f even greater Christi
iii w.irsbi at the church. If every
no will do his or her Christian
htty, the financial side «>f the church
will take care of itself.
I lev. Adams is very anxious to
have St. John and its membership
have a clear understanding of how
everything should be carried out
in the AMK church. He is very an
xious that the service will show a
line spiritual ns well as an intellec
tual aspect. Let us all join in to
make it what it shotid be.

within himself can probably hold
the office, I am the best man for

Owens is seeking to combine for- ;
ees that can command action for|,
the Omaha Negro. His platform j
