Interest of the afternoon
were not present in time to ta?e
their part on the program. The in o-
cation was by Rev. J.K. E.Craighe'-d,
and the sermon by Rev. F. VV Hawley
of Oklahoma City. That gentleman
preached a powerful j-ermon that was
a strong appeal for more and better
Christian service, even at the cos»
of some sacrifice. The world is what
is is today by reason of the sacrifice
of human blood and animal life ;
vegetable and mineral wealth have
also been sacrificed for the public
dedication. The building was 36x36
with choir alcove, and seated^ 230
persons. Rev. J. R E. Craighead was
the resident pastor at that time The
church records show a gradual in-
crease in membership, the last report
April, 1905, showing 209 members.
The first elders were Dr. L S. Skelton
and Geo. L Lage, and meetings were
held every two weeks, the pulpit
being supplied by pastors from Ponca
and Newkirk. Reverend Craighead
resigned in September, 1903, and Rev
Thos. F. Barrier of Emporia. Kansas,
was called by the church to succeed
him, his minis'ry beginning in the I
early Winter of 1J03 Work had been
started during the pastorale of Rev !
Craighead, to accumulate for :i new j
church, and Rev. Barrier took up
that work, and with the abie assist-
ance of the congregation, persevered
until the dream was realized. The
frame church was torn down la t

to l ave a building of their own, and

now stands cost close to $7,500.00, and

years ; pennies by the children for

Circle, and finally subscriptions by
members and friends, together wi,h
the handsome collection and sib

them to occupy their new building
practically debt-free. The plans for
the building are the result of ideas
of Rev. Barrier and members of the
committees, worked out by contrac-
tor H, E. Martin and Ise Strub e.
The contract was awardtd to Mr.
Martin, and everyone will testify as
to the laithfulnees with which the
work has been performed.
