Page Eighteen CHURCH NOTICES erection and support should be the con cern of all who have the W^fare of the community at heart. T. G. Tate Church and Community No man lives or dies to himself. We are members of the community in which we live, and as such it is our duty to work for the improvement of that com munity. We should take a pride m our home town, and feel that we are “citizens of no mean city.” There are many forces and factors which contribute to make a town a good place in which to live. The home is the first and most factor in community betterment. Better homes make a better town. A stream rises no higher than its source. No com munity is any better than the average level of its homes. In order to have a progressive, enlightened, and Christian community, we must have progressive, enlightened, and Christian homes. The school also has a great oppor tunity for uplift. Education is not a narrow process of training the mind merely, but should include the bodies and souls of the children as well. The grea need today is an all-’round education. The school, too, thru sympathetic co operation with the parents of the com munity, can do much toward the devdop- ment of this community spirit. Hos pitals, good roads, parks, and play grounds, beside many other factors too numerous to mention, do a great toward the making of a town. But cer tainly the church should be placed along side of the home and the school as the three great forces of community uplift. The more thoroly churched and Chris tianized a community is, the better place it is in every way. Decent places of worship, from an economic standpoint pay. More substantial sort of people dwell and remain contented in their environment. Less of moving and un rest will be found. It enhances the prop erty value of the town, being a good recommendation to visitors and prospec tive residents. Socially, the church has a value which must not be overlooked. It should be the center of wholesome entertainment and social life for the congregation and community. Moving pictures of the right sort might be prop erly shown on week nights, especially when there are so many which are not the best. The members, thru leagues, societies, and socials, come in contact with one another under the best auspices. The church, in an indirect way, and often directly, uplifts morals, preserves order and good government, and improves the tone of the town. One of the prin ciples of Bolshevism is the destruction of all churches and religion. It seems to me that one of the most effective ways to fight this evil is thru the church. Lawlessness and crime do not find favor able soil in a community of God-fearing, churchgoing people. The mission of the church is spiritual, however; and the good it does cannot be estimated in dol lars and cents. The church should be the center of the life and activities of the congrega tion, and provide not only worship on Sunday, but entertainment, social life, and instruction during the week. Any town, therefore, is the better which has comfortable houses for worship, whose Presbyterian Church .Notes The following is the order for services during the hot months; Preaching on Sunday at 11.00 a. m. and 8.30 p. m- Sunday School at 10.00 a. m.
