PARKERSBURG. Sept. 25.?Many
of the members of the First Baptist'
Church, as well as many of the friends
of Rev. W. C. Calder, the pastor, ,not
members ?of this church, were surprised
to quite an extent when, on
Sunday, at# the morning service, he
handed, In his resignation which is to
take effect after the last Sunday in October,
About two weeks ago Rev. Calder
received a call to the pastorate of the
North Rockford Baptist Church in
Philadelphia, which came la the nature
of a surprise to him, and after
considering and weighing the matter
well in his own mind, he Anally decided
to accept the same and the tendering
of his resignation on Sunday
was the result of having arrived at
this conclusion.
The chug-ch to which he has been
called is in one of the suburbs of
Philadelphia, which has a population
of about forty thousand, and was
formerly a city to Itself prior to becoming
a part of Philadelphia. It Is
considered one of the best openings
for a minister there is In that city
at the present time, and in" accepting
the call, Mr. Caider will go Into a
much wider field of labor.
During bis connection with the
First^ Baptist Church of 1 this city
which, has been a little more tjhan
five years, Rev; Mr. Caider. has been
a most faithful pastor, and has sueceedd
in bulldlnga up the membership
to quite an extent. He has not only
the warmest feeling of friendship toward
him among his own 'congregation',
but has an extensive circle of
friends among the people in general, in
the city.
In point of years In service In the
city as a pastor.- he Is next to the
sldeat, Rev. S. Scollay Moore, or
lYInlty Episcopal church having been
In the work, here before Rev. Mr.
Gender came to- Parkeraburg. It
oiltl' i,a with Sppn pGcret on the nart
of many In the city, that they will
see Rev. Mr. Calder depart for another
field of labor,' but he will go
with the best wishes of all for his success.
\ 1 ' f '
The local church will no doubt take
some steps at once, to secure another
pastor, but it may be some few weeks
at. least before this can be accomplished.
ReV. Mr. Calder will take
up hiB new duties in Philadelphia the
first week In November.
