BETHEL A. M. E. CHURCH.
Sunday was truly a high day at
Bethel A. M. E. Church. The Sun
day school was largely attended. $10
was raised, besides eggs given by
each pupil for the cause of Missions.
A neat little program was rendered
Sunday night at 8 o'clock sharp.
The Sunday school was out in full
bloom. The quarterly review was
of Inquiry, to
H I S BQQg.
demonstrated by the superintendent
known as the Review Laundry or
Wash Day in tbl Sunday School.
The object of the review plan Is to
vividly portray the lesson studied
that a great impression may be
made upon the minds of all. The
general theme or key note for the
quarter was a clean life. The wire
represents our line of conduct or
that on which hangs our success or
failure. The prop represents Faith
holding up all our acts. The clothes
pins are typical of Confidence and
Surety in what we do. The wash
tub represents Conviction. The rins
lug the conversion tub, both neces
sary to a clean life. The wash board
represents repentance. The wringer
represents the trials. The well rep
resents the Fountain (or Christ).
The water his, blood, the soap his
Grace. The buckets God's, love.
Appropriate music all during the ex
ercises. Bethel Church and the
whole community are proud of Mr.
&ha klelord. He is a leading star
In Sunday school work. He is the
instructor of Sunday school teach
ers' training class. He is dealing
with the minds of the young and old.
This was one of the greatest demon
strations ever witnessed at any place
by any people. When you want to
be entertained with high class Sun
day school work come to Bethel or
see Mr. Shackleford.
ST. JOHN BAPTIST CHURCH.
Easter Sunday was a day of bless
ed enjoyment throughout the whole
day. Sunday school was enjoyed by"
all who attended and at 11 o'clock
there was a nice, Bhort program
rendered. Sister Beatrice Williams,
the president of the Galedas, read
a wonderful paper on Easter, after
which our most honorable pastor,
Rev. W. H. Whittaker, preached a
special Easter sermon for the benefit
of the Sunday BChool, text, Matt.
28:, subject, "Women Running with
a Message for the Lord." He illus
trated it so very beautifully and
with such spiritual intelligence that
we al sat and drank and our souls
feasted from manna on high.
At 3 o'clock Rev. Coleman deliv
ered to us a wonderful message from
God and again at 8 o'clock the pas
tor filled the rostrum and dealt out
to us another wonderful sermon,
text, Acts 12:15, subject, "Prayer
Meeting at Sister Mary's House."
We are having prayer meeting at
our house all this week in order to
get everything straight and find out
If the sinners in our community
really want a revival. Our revival
will start Sunday night, which will
be the first Sunday night and the
Till of the month. We are hoping
for a great time and cordially invite
all to come and take a part, both
saints and sinners. We hope to see
a great number of souls saved by
the help of God Almighty. Visitors
are always welcome. Doors always
open for the reception of members.

REVIVAL AT MT. OLIVE! A GREAT
REVIVAL RESULTED. FROM THE
EXPERIMENT OF TEACHER
TRAINING. The Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist
Church was to take up the order of
preparing the Sunday school teachers
to do the bidding of Jesus, who said,
"Teach them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you."
After the completion of a two
years' course under the tutorship of
Rev. J. A. Sharp, Superintendent of
Teacher-Training for the National
Baptist Publishing Board, I thought
it wise to put Into practice what the
Superintendent and teacheris had got
ten in theory. A large number of
them . having finished theflr coilrse
pud havim; their diplomat, we had
the church to elect Dr. Sharp, who
Is a memiber of the church, to conduct
the 2Gth of the series of revivals,
which was ordered in the organization
of the church, which organization
was effected by the late Rev. R, T.
Hiuffman, D. D., the first pastor, usu
ally 'beginning Mafchl the fth (of
each year. In accord with tho or
der, Dr. Sharp organized his forces
largely out of the class that .gradu
ated, last year, Wednesday and Thurs
day in the week preceding the 10th.
Sunday morning he opened in earnest
Stamps for a
revival which baa resulted to date
in nor than evenly additlona to
the church, 60 of whom are happy
candidates for baptism, many of
whom were people that the church
had not been able to reach by any
of the former methods used. (It
may Ibe .regarded twtthj p&rdcnaMa
pride that I refer to myself, having
been a revivalist of 40 years ex
perience, I lay some claims to tl
order of soul-winning under the ii
proved methods heretofore used .
The methods used 'by Dr. Sharp!
have merits that I highly commend
to the brotherhood of America and
elsewhere. I regard him as a preach
er of rare ability, especially, of the
New Testament. He has a profound
train of thought, the lead of which
emphasizes Christ and the plan of
salvation and the importance attach
ed to it by his apostles, which dem
onstrates the soundness of his posi
tion as a soul winner and as a Gos
pel preacher. Sunday, March 30th,
brought an occasion for the climax of
the great services. Sunrise "prayer
meeting led by Bro. Porter Carter
who in several respects possesses ex
ceptional ability for prayer-meeting
leadership. At 9:30 a. m., under the
new order of time. Superintendent
Baker., one of Dr. Sharp's products,
called to order one of the best Sun
day school gatherings that the church
has ever witnessed, which was en
joyed by the church almost Inexpress
ible. The Sunday prior, twenty-one
of the Sunday school scholars had
made profession of hope in Christ
With this order foremost his corps of
teachers In sympathy with it, among
whom special mention is here made
of Prof. H. B. P. Johnson, teacher
of class 16A, Circulating manager of
the Union-Review, and Musical Au
thor for the National Baptist Publish
ing Board, who also tharmed the
audience with his choral class, which
has been under his tutorship for only
a faw weeks. All of which argue,
the necessity of the Teacher-Training
Service, conducted by the church
as has been taught and propagated
by our Board under the leadership of
Rev. J. A. Sharp.
