Mr. Gilbert is Band Director at Orchard, Texas * where he has been for some years. Some seventy seven members have joined the Calvary Baptist Church during the past year. APOSTOLIC FAITH CHURCH Rev. Floyd LaMunyon, Pastor The Sunday morning service of September 28th was begun with choir singing directed by Melvin Scott, with Mrs. T. B. Tucker at the piano. A beautiful solo, "Jesus Found the Wandering Sheep" was rendered by Marilyn Stanberry with Dorothy Scott playing the accompaniment. Rev. LaMunyon's sermon on "The Word" was very inspiring. His text was taken from Jeremiah, Chapter 26, Verses 1 and 2: "In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakin the son of Josiah king of Judah came this word from the Lord, saying, Thus saith the Lord; Stand in the court of the Lord's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the Lord's house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word." The pastor gave some outstanding thoughts on the last four words of the above quotation from the Bible. He specifically stated that there should be no compromise with anything less than the entire Word of God from Genesis through Revelation. The evening service began at 7:30 with Rev. LaMunyon leading the choir singing and Lenore Peck at the piano. "Drifting Too Far From the Shore" was the theme of a chalk drawing by Dana Baker. While she drew this picture, Lela Kathryn Busch and Lenore Peck sang a duet, Mary Jo Elkins presented a reading, and Rev. and Mrs. LaMunyon rendered a vocal duet with accordian accompaniment. These numbers were connected with the main topic "Drifting." Out-of-town visitors in the service were Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Peck of Ganado, and Rev. and Mrs. Darrel Sutton and children of Houston. Rev. Sutton delivered the evening message. His beginning thoughts were that life is short and death is sure. "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time and then van- isheth away." James 4:14. Rev. Sutton connected these thoughts with the entire first chapter of I John, showing that there is eternal life through Christ. His theme included man's ruin, God's remedy, sin is the curse, Christ is the cure. Everyone is invited to our services. KATY BAPTISTS „ A total of 507.00 was raised for western missions.
