This makes one realize how little faith we have, when the true test comes. Each mem- ber was called upon to share in the program, by recalling their favorite scripture. Dur- ing the social hour, a surprise was in store for the group.

ESTABLISHED IN 1900 by Gracie Adkison Before dawn last Sunday, the elements opened up with raging winds and thunder storms. This was to be our special all day gathering and dinner at the church house. Fear began to weld up in our minds that our visitors would be rained out and our expectation of a good day, ruined. "Oh ye of little faith", for long before 9:45 the rain had ceased and the clouds began to disappear. The day turned out to be most pleasant in every respect. The program went well and we had an excellent turn out in attendance. Singing and preaching was outstanding. Dinner and fellowship, lovely. Our guest speaker was Da- vid E. Keen, Sr., from Mobile, Alabama. Just before he brought his message, we were blessed with two duets that lift- ed our spirits in song. One song was by Craig Harrison and Melanie McDaniel and ano- ther by Mr. and Mrs. Danny Harrison, accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Jerry McDaniel. ARer returning inside after lunch, The Singing Pilgrims were at their very best. Along with them, we enjoyed some very good congregational songs. Our gratitude extends to each member and friend who gave to- ward the heat!ng and cooling system, we're hoping to pur- chase as soon as we can man- age it. A fair portion of the price for the unit was received and our morale is highly boost- ed at the thought that perhaps we really can get it. Friends! The greatest thing on earth. A few others have told us they want to help on this unit in the near future. We are happy to report our pastor and Nancy are taking a break from the hard work they have been doing. They left on a business trip to West Palm Beach, Florida. Friends of Nellie Skinner will be glad to learn that she has gone with relatives on a visit and pleasure trip to Washing- ton, D. C. for a week.
