O'NEALL SEREET EFURcL
Reopened on- Sunday-Ad'dresses by
Pastors of the City and Presi
dent Z. F Wright.
.The- reopening of the O'Neall Street
Methodis-E church on Sunday nigh-t
was not only an event of'great fnterest
to the members of that congregation,
but also to the whole church- ir New
berry. Since the destruction of' the
old church by fire, i'Es peoprre iave
had not only the sympathy of afl, but
the courage, zeal and en-ergy of the
pastor of the church and his- congre
gation in the face of suoh' a calamity
has been the cause of tniversaf ad
miration, and all rejoice in the great
success they have achieved in erecting
on the site of the-old church a beauti
ful modern structure.
During th-e time that they have been
without a church home, the congre
gation has held services in the Mayer
Memorial Lutheran churcfi and the
West End Bap-ist church. The new
building is of frame, covered- with
stucco. Its two towers and large
windows make it very attractive in
external appearance. Its interi-or, fin
ished in natural -wood, firnished with
quartered oak pews, lighted' by elec
trici-y, and seating five hundred peo
ple, perfect irr its acousfics; makes. it
one of the most attractive and com
plete church atditoriums iir this part
of the state.
On Sunday night, Newberry had che
remarkable experience of having only
one open church in all the city. In
honor of the reopening of-the O'Neall
Street churc, all the other- churches
in Newberry suspended service, and
their pastors attend'ed and took part
in the reopening services.
