CHURCH INCREASE
The Baldwin Ledger, 21 Sep. 1906

 

The Methodists Hold an Interesting and Profitable Service

 

Last Sunday was a day of unusual rejoicing to the membership of the M. E. church in this city. The Sunday previous had witnessed the baptism of thirty-four candidates by the pastor, Dr. I. B. Pulliam — an unusual sight — but this Sunday the consummating service of church relationship took place with fifty-one accessions. The church now enjoys a membership of about 950 and hardly a Sunday passes without someone joining by certificate or letter. Several years since when the matter of building the church was under discussion many thought that the people were planning too largely but Sunday morning witnessed a crowded house and yet not nearly all the membership was there.

 

At the Sunday School the attendance was 650 and it is a problem to arrange the classes so they will not disturb one another. This problem will not be settled until the entire basement of the church has been fitted out for class rooms. Dr. Pulliam is to be congratulated upon the success of the work under his charge at this place.
