There are few rural communities
that have as large Baraca class as
Colliers. The class of young men
which meets every Sunday af terno?ri
with the Peace Haven Sunday

good work of the Baraca class.
Whenever any member of the class

Sunbeam Mission Study Classes.
On last i Saturday afternoon the
Sunbeam society held their last,
mission study class for the summer.
Their book was the "World Fami
ly" and four afternoons have been
very profitably spent in its study.
The first was held with Mrs. Fan
nie Tompkins, each* of them being
open air meetings. The second meet
ing was on the lawn of Mrs. J. L.
Mime, and the third at the homo of
Mrs. Emma Dobson. This was es
pecially interesting to the ohildren.
The souvenirs were appropriate, and
suited to the subject of the lesson.
At each place light refreshments
were served, and the program given
by the children, the lesson being
taught by Mrs. Tillman. The last
class was at the home 'of Mrs. Till
man where the sunbeam idea was
beautifully carried out in the pro
gram and souvenirs which were lil-,
tie pink candles in rose bud holders.
What an opportunity is given the
ohildren of our day, not only in
being thoroughly trained but in
having the religious life invested
with joyful surroundings.
