ELDER LUCY SMITH GOES IN
NEW CHURCH IN CHICAGO,
Elder Lucy Smith pastor and
founder of the All Nations Pen
tecostal Church in Chicago, 111.,
went into their new fifty thousand
dollars church Sunday, May 28th,
1939 located at the corner of Vin
cennes and Oakland Boulevard,
The lot is 180 feet front and 159
feet deep. The church is 80 feet
wide and 118 feet in length. The
structure is most beautiful being
built of brick stone. Two steps
wide roomy leading into entrance.
The very latest architectural de
signs for exterior and interior
have been used. The large audi
torium that will seat three or
four thousand is very large with
16 windows of gold blue and red
of georgeous beauty. The choir
stand seats 85. The circular pul
pit seating 10. Added attractive
outside is the tower in four cor
ners in colored glass brick that
will be lighted on the we«t side of
the cfourch. The church is modern
ly equipped with heating, two
large new type lavatories for
women and men. A large base
ment two outside entrances, one
inside entrance of wide long steps.
There is an auto driveway leading
from street in Vincennes side to
an arch at the entrance. That fea
ture is to eliminate exposure to
inclement weather for persons
driving to chuch. Although the
church building it not yet com
pleted on tfhe inside, Elder Smith
and congregation are worshipping
in it, if plans go forward as
planned the church will be dedi
cated in August fully completed.
This grand successful undertak
ing by a woman pastor in these
times ig a victory all to marvel.
Truly the Lord did build the house
and it was not in vain.
