Baptist Church Notes.
The Cloverport church enters upon ,
the new year encouraged by the results
of the past few months and hopeful as
to the outlook for the new year.
The church was for the first three
months of I9I2 without a pastor, the
present pastor entering upon the work
In April for half time. Since Septem
ber the first the church has had preach
ing every Sunday. Since April the first
14 members have been received, 13 by
baptism, and since the first of Septem
ber the financial receipts from all de
partments of the church work have
averaged 140.00 per month. For the
last quarter of 1q12 the average at
tendance in the Sunday school was 128,
and the collections for the quarter, in
cluding the Sunday school treat,
amounted to the handsome sum of 100.
The church is using tho Duplex En
velope System, the latest thing in the
way of church envelopes, for this year.
It is a double envelope, one end is for
pastor's salary and Incidentals, and
the other end is for missions and benev
olence. One end is printed In black and
the other in red. Each contributor is
provided with 02 envelopes in a carton
and will have the privilege of making
an offering ''Upon the first dav of each
week as the Lord has'prospered them."
At the business meeting last Wednes
day ulght, the cnurch Instructed the
pastor to secure suitable he'p for an
evangelistic meeting to begin about the
fourth Sunday in May. The pastor is
planning the organization of a Ba'raca.
Chorus of 50 voices to be In readiness
for the meeting, as well as at other
times and for the regular services on
Our aim for lol3, in part, Is to bring
at least 52 persons into the fellowship
of the church, to reach an average at
tendance of 200 in the Sunday school,
to average $150 per month for all pur
poses, to build some Sunday school
rooms to accomodate the Primary and
Junior Departments and the Baraca
and Fidelis classes, to put a furnace In
the church, to put the church audlto
rlum in first-class condition, lowering
the ceillug, papering or frescoing th
Ulterior, re-painting both the Interior
and exterior wood work. All this may
not be done, but it is well to have an
aim and reach it if possible, and this is
a reasonable aim.
