Mary Nelson Prall, a graduate of the Bipiist Missionary Training school, Chicago, Naomi Fletcher, Mrs. Alice Brown, Hulda Sandberg and Helen R. Hawkins. For the younger generation Polly Ann Kirk (fourth generation member of this church), spoke. The response of Ruth Avery, V, was in the form of an original poem: The very name of Baptist fills my heart with pride, To think that I can worship here with relations on each side, And how with many others I can celebrate the party. And laugh and sing and think and pray and with my friends be hearty. The church itself stands oh! so strong against a somber sky, And the toweling spires prick through the gray as I go walking by. How glad I am each Sunday when I see the church so near, That I was born into a church which to me is very dear. I love the beautiful windows, the pastor and many things, I love the messages so dear to us each Sunday he brings. Now when you go to mar a thing or you begin to roam, -Always hold in memory clear that this is 1 God's dear home. William B. ("Bill") Hathorn told of his interest in the oJd church of his family while Dick Martin remarked that it was hard for him to remember wjth precision what occurred in 1776; "We have a large and splendid heritage in this church," he said. "Today we are trying to steer a ship in mid-ocean. Our great need is to bring it to shore and establish our bearings again. Our elders guided it well for 70 years but the next 70 years ahead are for us to guide it Co-ooeration and study will aid us, while a belief in our compass, the Bible, and our Pilot, Jesus Christ, are prime essentials." !
