WILL BE CONDUCTED THIS SUNDAY
The Churches of Bellaire are striving to serve the relig-
ious needs of the people in the community, each denomina-
tion serving its own people, and welcoming those drawn to it.
But Bellaire’s rate ol growth is so high that each church
finds it extremely difficult to keep up with the new resi-
dents. So the churches are working together in this in one
dynamic effort to contact every home. We will be successful
only insofar as we receive your cooperation.
By working together, and by your cooperation, we hope
to make a complete survey; and instead of six callers—one
from each church—one will serve for six churches.
EVERY CITIZEN OF BELLAIRE, REGARDLESS OF
FAITH, IS URGED TO COOPERATE.
A letter with census form enclosed will be delivered to your
home in Friday's mail. You will help greatly by writing the re-
quested information on the form. This will be called for at your
home on Sunday, October 12 between 1 :30 and 5:00 p.m. If you
will not be ot home during that period, please LEAVE THE FORM
AT YOUR DOOR WHERE IT MAY BE COLLECTED BY THE
