M, W4 M»ion C'lly, la, Plan Church Centennial Celebration CLARKSVILLE--The centennial anniversary of the Methodist Episcopal and' Presbyterian churches, which, united to form the Clarksville Community Church, will be observed Sunday, Feb. 28, with special services. It was in 1852 that the several families of the Clark brothers and the George Poisals (Mrs. Poisal was a sister of the Clark brothers) came to what is now Clarksville from Indiana and established the first community here. They sent for the Rev. Solomon Ingham, who rode for two days on horseback to bring the first sermon. They started the first Methodist congregation in that year and held meetings in the homes until 1864 when they deeded the land for church purposes and the first Methodist Episcopal Church was built. This was where the home of Richard Waugh on Main Street now stands. New Church Built In 1905 a new and modern church was erected and when the churches merged this building was sold to the Wesleyan Methodists of Waterloo. The Presbyterian Church was organized in 1854 at a meeting in the David Blakely home and he was also the first pastor, later the Rev. George G r a h a m was pastor for many years. The charter members were: Mr. and Mrs. Samuel McCrery, Mrs. Emily Stone, and Blakely. They were soon joined by Mr. and Mrs. William Pringle, Mr. and Mrs. John Moulton, James Ford, Matilda Hilton, \V. E. Van Dyke, John Stevenson and Samuel McRpberts. They erected the first building in 1867 which was replaced by the present church in 1912. · . .· ... · . ; . . . :'/' : : The union of the Methodist E p i s c o p a l and Presbyterian churches was effected in 1930.

Bishop to Speak The program of the centennial anniversary will begin at the morning service with Bishop Francis Gerald Ensley, resident bishop of the DCS Moines area of the Methodist Church giving the sermon. Joining the Rev. Ensley in conducting the morning service will be the Rev. Harley W. Farnham, superintendent of the Waterloo district, and the Rev. Robert Rushing, pastor of the Clarksville Community Church. In the afternoon a concert of sac- rcci music will be presented by a ladies' trio and a quartet from Wartburg College. The program will begin at 3 p.m. and will be followed by a centennial tea to be served in the church parlors. Roy Montgomery Service to Be at San Leandro, Calif.
