Transcription

The meeting of the National Baptist Sunday School Union at the Fifth Baptist Church on last Sunday was well attended. The church was packed from pulpit to door. At 3:30 p.m., President B.H. Peyton called the meeting to order after singing by the Union. Scripture reading by Rev. Perry and prayer by Major E. A. Washington, the well prepared program was rendered in good taste.
It was soul-stirring to sit and listen to the little ones as they showed forth what new life there is in our coming generation.
Mr. W. P. Burrell, Pres. of the Baptist Sunday School Union of Richmond was present and gave a very cordial greeting and bade the Union God’s speed.
The paper read by Mr. Vernie Hoard on Sunday School was a fine production and Mr. W. H. James, Jr., of Fairfield Union in his remarks showed that the city and country was alive for such a grand move.
All seemed to voice the sentiment that the Union is doing great and good work. Pres. Peyton and officers of the union received the congratulations on all sides for their wonderful efforts.
The next union will be held at Fifth Street Baptist Church the third Sunday in May. A rare treat in store.
