Hosts of Methodists and their friends are expected to gather In Warsaw with the local congrega tion for the dedication of the War saw Methodist Church Sunday, October 20, at 11 A. M. Bishop Paul B. Kern, Bishop of the two Carolinas, will preach and will dedicate the Church. At the even ing service Rev. Frank Culbreth, a former pastor, will preach. The Church building is one of the most lovely and most wor shipful small churches to be found anywhere. Its dedication will be a nigh spot of rejoicing and of thanksgiving for the local congre gation, and it will be the climax of a long process of labor and prayer on the part of many faith ful men and women. The day will be made one of historic signifi cance in the life of the Church by the presence of Bishop Kern and of former pastors, and members. The charter members of the Church only five in number were Mr. and Mrs. G. J. Lambeth, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Moore, and Mrs. Sallie E. Johnstone. The corner- I stone of the Church was laid. Nov. 8, 1889, and years later, when dirt was broken for the remodeling and building of the present structure the first shovel of earth was turn ed by Mrs. Johnstone. She is still a faithful member, greatly beloved by the entire church. For the building of the Church School rooms and renovation of the Church, Mr. J. S. Fleming, Mr. J. C. Russ and Mr. Howard Black more served faithfully and well. Much credit is due to the faithful women of the Church who under the leadership of the Woman's Missionary Society constantly con tributed to meei. the financial needs. The president of the society at present is Mrs. Wayne Jordan. The history of this Church has been one of conspicuous harmoni ous cooperation on the part of all its congregation, with a minimum emphasis upon social prestige and a maximum manifestation of the sincere religious spirit always no ticeable.
