The Founding of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Baldwin — Many Noted Speakers are to be Here.


This week will see the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Methodist Episcopal Church of this city. It is an event which will prove of interest to all Baldwin people.


After a half a century of excellent work and service, the members of this church can well afford to pause for a moment and review the great work that they have accomplished.


A committee composed of Prof. O. G. Markham, W. C. Markham, Prof. H. K. Ebright, have had the arrangements of the program in hand for some time and have set the time of meeting for October 28th, and Wednesday evening the ladies of the church will give a social. Thursday evening Dr. W. A. Quayle will lecture, an event which will be greatly appreciated by all the people of this vicinity; on Friday the Epworth League will entertain those over sixty-five years of age; at 11 o'clock. Dr. Kelley, Presiding Elder of the district will preach, followed by a lunch and love feast. Friday night will be a banquet for the men and Saturday night the children have arranged a program which they will render.


Sunday services will be held at 10:30 a.m. and at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Rev. Pulliam, the old pastor, will preach in the morning and Mr. Hugh Smith will deliver the address of the evening and will also hold meetings throughout the week.


A great deal of time has been spent upon this program and an excellent one has been prepared; one that the Baldwin people will appreciate.
