McGowan left Monday; for Chica
go'' where1 they will attend a na
tional meeting of Commissioners.
They are expected to return via
New Tor City.
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. The stewards of the church are:
J. C. Thompson, J. C. Russ, J. M.
West, J. N. West, W. L. Surratt,
Mrs. G. P. Pridgen, Mrs. D. J.
Middleton. The Trustees are. J .C.
