CENTRAL TEXAS CONFERENCE JOURNAL.
The third Sunday in May of each year is Children's Day. It should be
the high day of the year in all our churches. It should be made a congrega-
tional as well as a Sunday School service. This year our collections on this
day aggregate nearly two thousand dollars, being several hundred dollars
in excess of last year.
State Sunday School Conference.
Under the management of our Board of Directors of our Methodist State
Sunday School Conference, we held our annual meeting at San Antonio,
Texas, in April of this year. The attendance and program were splendid.
We are already arranging for our next meeting in Dallas, Texas, in April,
1911, and trust our people will attend and profit by these great spiritual
A Week at Epworth.
Your Board appreciates the courtesy of the management of Epworth-by-
the-Sea, who have invited us to have a Sunday School encampment at Ep-
worth to last one week. This encampment is to be in the month of August
of each year. Sunday School experts will conduct an Institute and School
of Methods for one week. This will likely be preceded by the regular
Epworth League program of one week.
We note with pleasure the campaign of great magnitude outlined by the
Sunday School workers of all denominations and embraced in the Texas
Sunday School Association, of which our beloved brother, Rev. J. T. Mc-
Clure, of Dallas, is Central Chairman.
The plan is to have a systematic campaign to have every home in Texas
visited on February 22nd, to be followed by a universal Rally Day, on Sun-
day, February 26, when it is hoped to have one million people present in the
Sunday Schools on said day.
In order that we may reap our share of the harvest from such a campaign
we urge all pastors, superintendents and workers to this united effort,
with the hope that the Sunday School may be able to reach the masses
for a systematic Bible study, and winning them for our Christ and the
training of them for His service.
Your Board has, by unanimous action, appointed Bro. B. L. Nance to be
Field Missionary for another year, and commends him to the favorable con-
sideration of presiding elders and pastors.
Your Board recommends the appointment of Rev. A. D. Porter as a mem-
ber of the Board of Directors of the Methodist State Sunday School Con-
