Methodist Church Notes.
Next Sunday is the seventh since
caster, and in that Interval stands
for Pentacost. Pentacost is the real
beginning of the third, or Holy
Spirit Dispensation, and is one of
the most important events In tha
history of the church. The Bible
very clearly points to a personal
Pentacost for every believer—Acta
2: 38-39. So in the sermon Sunday
morning. "Pentacost, a present day
experience for the church and the
believer," the theme Is timely, and
the subject vital. You are Invited.
