Sure ly this was manifested in songs in great power last Sunday when the Ronda Singing Convention met ac cording to appointment with Swan Creek church, with a record-break ing attendance. Services began with singing "What a Friend We Have In Jesus", led by Glenn Swaim, the faithful director of the choir at this church, ac companied at the piano by Charles T. Jones and joined by the entire congregation in singing. Rev. N. T. Jarvis, the much loved pastor, who has so capably served this church for twenty-one years, read the 150 th Psalm for devotion, and again the congregation was asked to join in singing the familiar hymn "Amazing Grace", after Rev. Mr. Jarvis read it in parts. Some who knew it by memory would al most forget to wait for him to read again. This was showing to the younger singers the old way of sing ing when only the preacher had a book. Rev. Mr. Crater was asked to le&d the opening prayer. Several selections were rendered before noon by the choirs present and Rev. R. J. Pardue dismissed the service with a prayer. An hour or more was spent at noon. The shady grove and nearby spring afforded a very . pleasant place for lunch and for friends to meet. The chairman, Mr. Jones, called for a congregational song when the afternoon session began and an im pressive prayer was led by Rev. Gus Myers. The choirs were soon ready to sing and the secretary, Mr. Crater, had enrolled other singers who had joined in the afternoon. The home class was asked to sing first, as is the rule, and was led by Mr. Swaim, who is known to have the biggest choir in the convention. Bethel, di rected by W. H. Jones.
