Godis the First Christian Church by Charles Wall Sunday, Leonne brought us a message, "Encourage One Another" from Romans 1:11,12. The Apostles Paul says that the ability to encourage others is a spiritual gift. Even though Paul was a great evangelist and missionary, he said that he was encouraged by the individual Christians at Rome. An encourager is someone who comes along beside you and encourages you. Dixie Johnson shared with us an original poem, "The Day I Will Never Forget." Genie Martin sang a special, "God Bless the USA." Our choir meets for practice each Wednesday at 6 p.m. Dixie Johnson is having a wiener roast for her children's class Saturday at 6 p.m. at her house south of Perkins. Other classes are invited. Our church had a part in the Old Settler's Harvest Fest last Sat- urday. Our children's department had a float in the parade. Also, a dinner was held at our church building in recognition of the visit of Harding and Mary Lawrence and their family and friends, who came for the parade. Our Faith in Action ladies prepared the din- ner. The boys from the Lions Boys Ranch helped serve. The out- of-town guests were complimentary about the dinner and the inte- rior of the church building.
