GROUP COMMENDS FORMER PASTOR Baptist Ministers Extend Appreciation To The Rev. J. 0. Walton Appreciation to the Rev. J. O. Walton for his work in this vicinity while pastor of the Southside Bap tist church has been extended by the Wilmington Baptist Pastors conference. Signed by the Rev. T. H. King president, and the Rev. Een B. Ussery, secretary, the commen dation to the Rev. Mr. Walton states that, “he proved himself to be a good preacher, a safe and wise leader in all the work of our convention. He is greatly loved in this city and in our association.” The Rev. Mr. Walton, after serv ing for eight years as pastor of the Southside church, is now pas tor of the Mills Home Baptist church, Thomasville, N. C. “Brother Walton was a value able member of this conference, cheerful, amiable and helpful, a brother beloved among us. His going is a distinct loss to this con ference, as well as to the city and association.” “We heartily commend Brother Walton and his family to the Mills Home church and to the orphan age family. Our interest, love and prayers will follow them in their new field.” 5 Ministers From Area To Attend Convention Five ministers from the Wil mington Baptist association are planning to attend the annual Southern Baptist convention in St. I- air, Mo., this week, May 7-11.

First Baptist Church Organized With Only 20 Members In 1808 When the Cape Fear Baptist association “received a newly con stitute church in fellowship from Wilmington by letter and dele gates” on October 1, 1808, the church reported 20 members and contributed to the work of the as sociation 10 shillings, English money. But, during the years the mem bership has grown to 1,537 and donations totalled $59,278.20, ac cording to figures on the church year ending Sept. 30, 1946. With present contributions aver aging approximately $40 per mem ber annually, a quotation from the First Baptist church yearbook of 1873 proves interesting: “No member is to contribute less than 10 cents per week, but this is not to be so construed to mean that more might not be given according*to ability.” The church was reorganized in 1833, and was at that time called the Front Street church. From church r e cords it is learned that the use of the church building was granted Brother A. J. Battle “for the purpose of preaching to the colored people on Sabbath afternoons and with a view of collecting an African con gregation.” A building committee was ap pointed in 1858, and the model finally decided upon was Early English Gothic with two towers, a high tower and a lower one. The building on Market street was started in a great way, but with the coming of the Civil war, completion was delayed until 1870. During the yellow fever epi demic of 1862, the church lost its pastor, Dr. J. L. Pritchard. As a means of securing money, the pews were rented for the sum of $10,575. Following the dedication of the edifice on May 1, 1870, the mem bership for the next year was re corded as 210 with only 65 of these men. The Sunday school annex was built in 1920. The 125th anniversary of the church was celebrated i n April, 1933, while Dr. J. Marcus Kestor was pastor. Dr. Sankey L. Blanton came to First Baptist in 1956, and when he left to become dean of the School of Religion at Wake Forest college, the Rev. Charles A. Mad dry became pastor. Wilmington’s First Baptist is one of the few Baptist churches in the state with a full music pro gram. The program is under the direction of Henri Emurian a graduate of Westminister Music school, and incltides an adult choir of 40 voices. A junior choir of 35 voices is under the directon of Mss Helen Dobson, assstant or ganist.. Future plans of First Baptist in elude the erection of a church in the Lake Forest area. The church is now sponsoring community wor ship in that area with the Rev. D. W. Sullins as supply minister. First Baptist now owns a lot on the corner of Fifth and Willard streets. Not only has First Baptist sent forth a large group of ministers, it has fostered and started a number of important churches: Calvary, Southside, Winter Park, Gibson Avenue, W r i ghtsville Sound, Castle Hayne and Farm ers. The last three of these arc not now in existence. In addition to these, although it did not organize, First Baptist furnished a large number of mem bers for the formation of the Wrightsboro and Temple church es. Protestantism Must Fight, Baptist Says “Protestantism can make not only news, but history, if it will really free the colored people, re fuse to accept tax money (state or national) for their own parochial schools, and develop an effective boycott system against all fascist minded newspapers, all dry and vulgar movies, and profit-motivat ed radio stations.’" says Dr. Stan ley I. Stuber,, a secretary of the Northern Baptist Convention. “It must fight for freedom of the secular press as well as higher standards for our movies and a radio which is free of absolute con trol by peddlers of pills, soap and liquor. Proestantism is fighting a losing battle, morally and spiritual ly, if its young people and its adults are fed by the tens of mil lions, day after day. or night alter night, a standard of morality which makes sin attractive and virtue dull. Our church schools simply cannot cope with such a situation.” Religious Work Need Among Youth Stressec Stressing the urgent need foi religious work among the youn= people of Europe in these post war days. Dr. J. Hutchinson Cock burn, of Edinburgh, Scotland director of reconstruction ant church aid in the new World Coun cilof Churches told Council leader: recently at Buck Hill Falls, Pa. that the Communists have beer more "eager” in their activities among youth than the Chirstiar church has been. "If we were as eager,” he said "perhaps we would have the an swer to the Communist ideology Communism can’t be argued down it must be lived down. . .If Christ is to be enthroned over the lives of men in Europe, it will bt only by the reviving of the churct by the grace of God and the wort of the Holy Spirit. Of this re vival the churches are the appoint ed instruments. It is Christian civilization that is at stake, no merely in Europe but also in Bri tain and the United States.” LELAND CHURCH WORK TO BEGIN IN TWO WEEKS Construction Expected To Start On $40,000 Build ing This Month Construction of a S40.000 church building at Leland is expected to gc underway within the next two weeks, according to the Rev. Woodrow W. Robbins, pastor of the Leland Eaptist church. Timber has already been clear ed from the 3.6 acre lot which was bough; from the Henry Lewis estate for the church site, and work will begin when final plans are secured. The Rev. Mr. Robbins said that plans for the construction were being obtained from the Southern Baptist Sunday school board in Nashville. He further explained that the building would be similar in con struction to the Baptist church at Carolina Beach and the new Ash church building at Soldier Bay. The Ash church, of which the Rev. Mr. Robbins is also paster, will be dedicated on the second Sun day in October. Over 3,000 bricks are already on hand to be used in the building, and the Rev. Mr. Robbins said the church expected to get tile for in side finishings. The brick to be used is of the same rough fini.Ti as those used in St. Matthew’s Lutheran church in Wilmington. Sunday school rooms will be in the basement of the new building and its auditorium will seat 300 people, the pastor s'Md. "At present plans include stain ned glass windows, but,” he said, "plain glass ones may be put in st first.” . The Leland Baptist church is 22 year?, old, and the Rev. Mr. Rob bins, its third pastor, said that the church was looking forward tc be coming full-time soon. Members of the building com m i 11 e e are Robert Bordeaux, chairman, Lloyd Bordeaux and F. O. Simmons. Around $5,500 has been raised for the building fund, the pastor announced. Anniversary Observed For China Missionary All Michigan Methodism observed the one, hundredth anniversary of the start of the Rev. Judson Dwight Collins (April 8. 1847) for China, where he arrived on Sept., 4, 1847, to become the founder of Methodist missions in that nation, but the heart of celebration was in the village of Unadilla, near Ann Arbor, where Collins lived as a boy and grew to manhood. Dr. Samuel J. Harrison, presi dent of Adrian College, and chair man of the celebration, delivered the main address, “Judson Dwight Collins Lives Again.’’ Collins lrv :d only four years in China, and d-d at the age of twenty-nine, but was the forerunner of hundreds of mis 1 esionaries who have served the Methodist Church in China. This fall the anniversary of his arrival on China will be observed in Foochow, the city in which he worked; and in the months of the , following year a series of centen nials will be held in other Chinese I cities, marking the anniversaries j of the dates upon which they first 'received Methodist missionaries.
