Christian Church N otice T o whom it may concern:— W e, the undersigned members of the Christian Church, desire in this manner to express to the public the following statement of faets relative to the change in the Hffairs of the church at this place: Upon the resignation of W alter Givens as pastor of the church, such resignation being accepted as his wish, J. C. Ghonr.ley was duly called to the pastorate with a full understanding, be tween himself and the congregation, that he should devote but tw o days per week to the pastorate at this place, the remaining five days of the week be ing spent in the Portland Medical Col lege. A fter an acceptance o f the work »y Mr. Ghormcley, a change in the af fairs of the Portland Medical College made it impossiple for Mr. Ghormlcy to give more than Saturday evening and Sunday to the work at this place, and necessitating his return to Port land on the last car on Sunday even ing. Belfeving that it would be im possible for Mr. Ghormlcy under this new arrangement to continue his school work and at the same time successful ly Carry on the pastorate of this church, the congregation, realising the necessity of Mr. Ghormlcy continuing in the Med ical work to enable him to return to his post in India in 1916, by a unanimous vote, released him from his contract, and by the unanimous vote W alter Givens was again asked to take up the pastorate o f the church, indefinitely. Because of our many friends, who are at all times interested in the affairs of the church, who will desire to know the reason for this sudden change o f affairs, we take this means of giving to the public a full and complete statement o f the fact'-. Attest. J. C. Ghormlcy W . Givens Publicity C irrm ittee D. S. Fleming W. H. Holder Mrs. D. M. Marshall jo rity ” but i f we believe the other bibical truths, we should believe this. There is a certain little secret glow o f self satisfaction or re flected righteousness, which al ways comes to anyone o f us, after we have made a donation to the Lord’s work, and even if we don’ t deserve it fo r our small contribution, it helps. Did you ever note the satisfied feel ing that always follows church attendance, especially when the attendant has been a little self- sacrificing in going to church. That same feeling will prevail, after you have signed one o f these subscription cards. Whether you are a church worker, a semi- worker or a non- worker. sign one o f these cards when it is presented to you and meet the solicitor more than half way. Its hard enough work so liciting money without having to be made to feel that you are begging it. Our Estacada churches are doing a big work and with mighty little financial support, so let us hope that this year w ill be a banner one in church finances. I f everyone in town agreed to give 10c per week, it would figure $40. per week, so every pledge, no matter its size, will help.
