16 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, MARCH 16,1978 Several Special Speakers, Services i l l l l Area Churches Schedule Their Progra Camp Hill-Wesley Women Enjoyed Special Program The United Methodist Women of the Camp Hill-Wesley Church, met on their regular meeting date, March 6, with special emphasis on observance of Lent. The meeting started at noon with a covered dish luncheon. We were happy and gratified to have many of our members present. Having enjoyed the meal and fellowship, a special program got underway. There was a striking worship center depicting Jesus and His disciplies. A large candle in mid- center represented Jesus, with 12 small candles in artistic arrangement representing the disciplies, as a short history of each disciple was given a candle was lighted, as each disciple forsook His Lord the candle ,. phased out. It was a beautiful scene. An afternoon well spent which certainly left a lasting im- pression of this part of the Lenten story in our minds and heart. The program was arranged by Mrs. Briscoe and narrated by Mrs. Dorothy Brown. SERVICES FOR ST, PETER'S LUTHERANS AT SHEPHERDSTOWN Rev. J.

Dear friend, " "  , I Any suggestions or display of affluence in a funeral service is, in our opinion, in poor taste. It is our belief that the funeral directors should be as inconspicuous as possible. A funeral ser- I vice is a religious rite.

Long ago in ancient Palestine, the prophet had heralded the coming of a king. But now few thought it more than the usual procession of some new earthly ruler. Yet no king ever came as He came. No king ever built such a kingdom. This was the King of Heaven who rode into the hearts of men and built there a Kingdom of Love! They crucified Him, but death could not stop His coming. He comes in every age to all who will believe. He comes to you. Go to church this Palm Sunday, for "thy king cometh." Let the King of Heaven ride into your so     s0 heart. 19m Kmmr .a, dvesg .Swv, Snstmrg, wrga [iiiii iiiii::i] Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday [iiiiiiiiii!!] John John John" John - lohp Luke Luke " FEAGAN8 ' JEWELERS Watch Repair & Jewelry Dial 725-7411 W.
