REV. COOK HOLD SERVICES IN
Members and friends of the local
Episcopal congregation enjoyed a ser
vice held in Emmanual church on
Sunday afternoon by Rev. James E.
W. Cook, archdeacon of the East Car
olina diocese and the new rector of
St. Pauls, Greenville. This is the
first service the church here has had
since the departure of its beloved rec
tor, Rev. A. C. D. Noe, Nov. 1st.
Rev. Cook's message,* taken from
the text "From Ashes to Beauty"
was impressive and beautiful. An
editorial in the Wilmington Star
speaks of Mr. Cook thus: "One of
Wilmington's most beloved Christian
ministers will leave here today for
Greenville, N. C., to become rector of
the Episcopal church of that city*****
The Greenville congregation is going
to have a rector whose personality is
of such a type that none can know
him but to become attached to him
by reason of his fine qualities as a
man and minister. He is a most gift
ed pulpit orator and Greenville will
soon be able to recognize him as a
learned and impressive preacher of
j the word." etc.
Mr. Cook will come to Farmville
i from time to time until a rector is
| secured for this parish.
AT CHRISTIAN CHURCH
' 1 ' ? ?
The local Christian church gave
their annual Christmas pageant on
i Sunday evening before Christmas. It
! was one of the most beautiful enter
tainments ever in Farmville and was
presented by the different members
of the congregation and directed by
Mesdames Fred and Lloyd Smith.
It was staged in the church 'midst
elaborate decorations of pine and ivy
against a snowy background. An
electric star and cross added much to
the impressive seene. The music and
costumes were beautiful and gave a
genuine Christmas spirit to the large
assemblage which filled the church.
Miss Dippie Baker and Pearcy Fox
impersonated a mother, and daughter
busily engaged in decorating the
church and talking of Christinas. Fi
nally the child drops asleep and "The
Shepherd^ Christinas" is presented as
Three Wise Men represented by
Messrs; Leslie Smith, Rural Tyre and
Lloyd Smith. The shepherds and an
gels arbund the manger scene made a
lovely picture. Miss. Fanny Moye
read the scripture lesson and Mrs,
Mary Moye Patterson and little Miss
Mildred Horton sang beautifully ap
The gifts which amounted to
$78.00, will be given to the Superan
nuate Fund which provides for aged
preachers and missionaries.
