The special is a brood of chickens raised by women of the church to be sold for Church benefit. This brood is usually of a different breed or color than the woman's own regular flock, and the odd colored chickens grow with the flock till market time, when they are sold as, "The Lord's Chickens". Now 50 'Adult Members. The church is supported by 50 adult and 35 junior contributors. There are 45 member families, and liO families who attend.
