ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual value~. Without a strong Church. neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) For Iris own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. Day SundaF Monday ion belief in God. And toward that ideal we are rapidly progress- Tfiesday ing. Christians the world over are feeling and expressing their unity Wednesday Thursday of faith and purpose. Friday Saturday Sunday is World-Wide Communion Sunday. On that day; within the space of a few short hours, Christians in every land will reverently participate in the Lord's Supper which has been a mark of Christian faith for almost two thousand years.

It is one of the ei books in entire Bible to re~ is interesting enough to read! through in one evening, impor- tant enough to re-read many times.

He~ the marching orders. The ci~ is a true church when it ca~ out his directives, it fades into a no-church when it for~ the Master. Now the quo~ Americans always ask about! thing--a club, a gadget, a chine, even a hole in the grout is: What 1. it for? What's it i posed to do, and will it worW What is the Church suppose do ? What is it for ? That is a question. The New Testament i sents the Church under vat! names, and gives various (the not contradictory) answers that first question. One of plainest of these answers is ill words of Jesus which shine 1~ beacon-light in the very first ~ of this book of Acts-- a light ~ gives direction and meaning to~ whole story, and indeed give$~ rection and meaning for Church of today.
