Rev. W. N. Ki, llma, - -:O: CHRISTIAN CHURCH NOTES Since we did not have any notes in the psrs last Fteek we must men- tion the fine attendance and interest on Easter Sunday. Beginning th the morning Prayer Services and running through the entire day both the attendance and sgirit were fine. Everyone who was present at all on Easter Sunday surely took away a wholesome inspiration. Last Lord's Day was a good day. On Easter we had asked for especal- ly good suort till Pentecost, wh is seven Sundays after Easter. I Just Sunday was the first of these seven Sundays and was well attended and fine interest was shown. We are plan- ning to make them better and better. We want these services to be an in- spiration and source of spiritual cour- age for us all. The more we attend the service- of His Church, the more Jesus te hCtcehots uaua mfl Jesus the Christ will mean to us. Since we as Chri:tians live and move and have our being in Him, how mightily essential are those things hat fix and keep fixed our eyes on Him. Both from the United Christian Mis::ionary S.ciety and from the State Society, the pastor has reeeiv- -d reeeists for the money sent foi- l:wing Easter. What a joy to feel that we have had a vart in spreading the glorious Gospel abroad. By your attendance and interest, make next Ird's Day a good day. friends and fellow workman.
