Sermon was Preached by
Bishop W. W. Duncan.
A NOTABLE EVENT
Large Assembly Attended the Reanllfol
and Impressive Ceremonies of the
Sunday, October 16th marked
an auspicious epoch in the his
tory of the First Methodist
Church of Laurens. The occa
sion was the formal dedication of
the handsome new church build
ing to the service of God. The
weather was ideal and when the
services were begun at 11 o'clock
a tremendous audience filled the
church, every available nook be
A magnificent array of potted
palms and ferns placed in ex
quisite taste within the chancel
and about the Church rostrum
greatly enhanced and beautified
the splendor of the occasion.
The ferns were generously con
tributed by Mrs. Ed Philpot from
"Ferndale" while Mrs. Pluss and
Mrs. J, M. Philpot furnished
some very handsome decorative
An especially pleasing feature
of the service was the rendition
of a particularly beautiful and
appropriate musical programme
by the well trained choir. Occu
pying seats with Bishop Duncan
were Dr. H. N. Snyder of Spar
tanburg, Dr. Robert Adams of
the First Presbyterian Church,
Rev. Henry Thomas, rector of
the Episcopal Church, Rev. J.
W. Kilgo, Presiding Elder, Rev.
J. G. Huggiu of the Second
Methodist Church and Rev. W.
The first prayer was offered by
Rev. Mr. Kilgo, which was fol
lowed by a few interesting re
marks by Rev. Mr. Duncan, pas
tor of the First church. Mr.
Duncan stated that when he came
to the pastorate of this church
four years ago there was a bal
ance of $7,000 owing on the
church debt. It gave him great
pleasuic to announce that this
debt had been wiped out. Fur
thermore the church had met
and discharged all its obligations
and meantime the pastor's salary
had been raued $200. Over 100
names had been added to the
church roll during his pastoral
relations with the church. He
took occasion to express his ap
preciation of the hearty co-opera
tion he had experienced in all
The dedicatory sermon, a
learned and very eloquent dis
course, was delivered by Bishop
W. W. Duncan of Spartanburg.
fThe basis of his j?rmon is found
in the 17th chapter of St. John,
beginning with the 20th verse:
['Neither pray I for these alone,
but for them also which shall
believe in me through their
Before entering upon his ser
mon the Bishop expressed his
gratification with the progress
the baud of Methodist of L,au
rens had made. In 1854, the
Bishop then a boy, spent his first
night in South Carolina in the
village of Laurens, moving from
Virginia to Spartanburg. At
that time the Methodist congre
gation was a mere handful.?
They have grown and expanded
magnificently in 50 years.
At the conclusion of the ser
mon, the board of trustees and
officers of the church came for
ward and Mr. J. F. Bolt, as
chairman of the committee, ten
dered to the Bishop the church
building formally dedicated and
set apart for the worship of Al

Thod ford's Black - Draught
