Easter Sunday was a very
husy day. The sunrise meeting,
a union meeting of the Young
People's societies of StJohns,
wus well attended and every ono
seemed to have the Easter
spirit. Among the interesting
things on the program was a
recitation hy Floyd Gilbert and
a pantomime by two little girls,
Elizabeth Ogdcn and Wilma
Maxwell, ono clinging to and
the other pointing to the cross.
The audience appreciated these
so much they were repeated in
the regular services, morning
and evening. An interesting
program was rendered in tho
Sunday School by the primary
and intermediate departments.
The church was beautifully dec
orated. The morning sermon by
the pastor was an Easter mes
sage. Tho choir sang a beauti
ful Easter anthem in the morn
ing. We had a good beginning
for our now conference year.
We expect, with our Bister
churches, that next Sunday will
be a red letter day a "Go To
Church Sunday." Everybody Is
going. Where, 1h to be the choice
of. the goers. Remember the
church bells will suy, "Go to
church, go to church, everybody
go." The theme for the morn
ing sermon will be, "The Prob
lems of The West," and for tho
evening. "Success lleauiBltes."
The choir will furnish special
music. Don't forget that Sun
day, April 10. is "Go to Church
