New Kingdom Hail to be Dedicated Three Durham congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses will unite this weekend to dedicate their new Kingdom Hall located at 812 Junction Road. The congregations will hold dedication services for the New Kingdom Hall after 5Vi months of construe-, tion by members of the congregations and several sub contractors. According to Gerome McDowell, Chairman of the Building Committee, and City Overseer, "We were very fortunate to have many of our members in the building trades and were successful in cutting much of the cost in construction. We pray that the building which was con structed by so many volunteers will prove to be a bless ing to the entire community." The dedication services will begin with apublic open house from 12 noon Saturday to 2 p.m. and the formal services will begin at 2:50 p.m. The history of the three congregations, a slide presentation of the construction phases, experiences and the dedication discourse will highlight Saturdays activities. A public talk and Wat chtower Study will highlight Sunday's activities which will begin at 10 a.m. The structure, located on the Junction Road between Cheek Rd. and Holloway St., is constructed on 3 acres of land which was a gift from one of the congregations members. The construction was partially financed by a local financial institution. posed by adults who had joined them. The young people, who v had been chosen to attend , a ' Youth Legislature assembly in Raleigh in March, were honored by the youth group at Mount Gilead, the Durham City Schools and the Youth Committee of the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People. The group described how their experience in the legislative workshop had enabled them to obtain first-hand experience in organizing a moot general assembly, in sponsoring legislative lobbying to get their legislation passed, and finally, in voting on their legislation. The bills that the students passed in the moot assembly were passed on to the N.C. General Assembly. . Kevin Washington, a National Honor student and a senior from Hillside High School who has recently been accepted by Harvard University, serv ed as chairman of the stu dent platform guests. Washington said, "The Youth Legislative Assembly will have an im pact on our lives." The students reported' on "legislation" that reflected their sensitivity to some of society's pro blems: lowering of the minimum wage, drug abuse, juvenile offenders,; problems , facing youths, budget cuts, and youth ex ploitation in the job market. After their presentation, the students answered questions posed , by the adults. When ' asked what causes students at the moot legislative assembly had given for juvenile of fenders, Washington said that peer pressure had been the common cause given. "If peer pressure can be steered into a different direction, it can be better used," said Washington. Some of the other con clusions made by the students were that the minimum wage should not be lowered because they believe it will push older, more experienced workers out of jobs; that youth of fenders should be handled more competently and more sensitively; that there should be restitution for youth offenders and that counseling should be available for youth because they often become second offenders; that 18-year-olds should be able to buy all alcoholic beverages; and that there should be no act against paraphernalia associated with drug use because of the confusion this law may cause.

Church's Forty-First Oeneral Conference which, in 1980, called for consulta tion to analyze and assess the Church's districts in Africa, South America and the Caribbean. a i a. n: i-- ii vir..j u rr iaitic ktki. . According iu Disuup n. naiuuiu oiuvmui . dent of the Council of Bishops and Chairman of the' Consultation Committee, "The purpose of this first "Consultation tour is to get an on-the-spot, first-hand assessment of what our Church is about at this juncture of its long history in Africa." In addition to Bishop Brookins, the other five, members of the Consultation Committee are: Bishop F. ' C. Cummings of the A.M.E. Church's Eighth District; Reverend John W. P. Collier, Secretary of Missions; Reverend Dovey J. Roundtree, General Counsel to the A.M.E. Church; Mrs. Wilhelmina Lawrence, President of the Women's Missionary Society and Dr. Joseph C. McKinney, Treasurer A.M.E. Church and President of the Lay Organization - Second District. During the consultation tour, the committee will meet with pastors, officers and members of the A.M.E. Church, as well as government officials and other in terested persons. "We want to find out what the peo ple's expectations are," said Bishop Brookins, and determine what the Church should be doing in such areas as education and health. We wilt also study the roles of Church leadership and investigate methods for accomplishing indigenous leadership." This tour to Africa will provide the Consultation Committee with the basis for determining workable solutions to the common problems of the people in the African Methodist Episcopal Church's African districts. Proposals outling those solutions will be presented to the Forty-Second Session of the A.M.E. Church's General Conference in 1984. r The A.M.E.
