Working For Gaines County
The Methodist meeting will be-
gin the first Sunday in August.
Bro. Florence will do the preach-
ing and Robt. E. Huston. Evan-
gelistic singer of Dallas will have
charge of the song services. He
will be assisted at the piano by
his fifteen year old son who has
been playing in meetings with him
for a number of years. The time
for the meeting is on!y about a
month off so lot’s begin to pre-
)>are for it, and make it one of the
best, most helpful meetings we
have ever had in Seagraves.
A group meeting consisting of
conferences from different towns
in this district will be held at
Brownfield Tuesday, July 22
Seagraves Seminole churches are
included in the meeting and we
hope to have a goodly number of
representatives from each town.
