“The Friendly Church”
Dr. R. A. Adams, pastor
In spite of the cold and wet
weather, there was a fairly good
attendance last Sunday. The Sun
day school opened at 9:30 with
the Supt., Mr. T. H. Goodwin, at
Dr. R. Ad Adams took as his text
“From Faith to Faith.”
Somo of the fine thoughts to
remember are as follows.
AH things have been made pos
sible through faith. The church of
today greatest need is faith like
that of our forefathers had. Us
ually when one fails it is the lack
of faith. It may be true that some
Christians are weak because their
faith is under developed, but what
wo need is pregressive faith, and
without fait hin God, it is impos
sible to do the best.
The College Education has fialed
if it dr-es not tend to bring spiri-1
tual heppiness and stronger fa:th,!
tve faith that increases until there:
is no doubt of the existence of
God. Parents should be cartful
lest they wreck the minds of the
children by telling them they will
never be able to reach certain
goals, The first thing to do is
always incourage them to feel if
they have faith, thev will conquer.
The sick of the Church are Sis
ter Handy, Sister Cropp Rut Sir
ter Cropp is better. Brother Geo.
Ray is about the same, and Sister
C. C. Baker.
Tho church takes this method of
expressing its sympathy to the
daughter, family and friends of
Brother C. B. Kitchen has been
a member of St. John for many
a year. He was a faithful mem
ber of the choir and often tried
to give service when he was really
not able. He was active as a class
lender, even had hiR quarterly en
velops made to pass to his mem
bers for the meeting less than two
weeks off when he died. St. John
will miss brother Kitchen in many
wavs about the Church, for he
really loved to do anything for
In the afternoon the choir went
to Hillside to help Rev. Williams
in his vesper services. Dr. Adams
'could not go because of an other
engagement in Council Bluffs.
The Union Services were at
Bethel with Rev. aHncock of Clair
and his choir serving. The service
was very impressive. Rev. Han
cock’s text was “The Danger of
Wandering too far from God.”
From this he gave a great mes
sage, and his choir sang with
