ALL FOR TIlE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor o,s earth {or the building of character and good citizen~hip. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound re,/sons why every person should attend services regularly and support ~he Church. They are: (I) For his 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 dai[y. Day Book Chapter Verses Sunday Isaiah 4 2 Monday Luke 2 7-11 Tuesday I~ke. 2 12-16 Wednesday Luke 2 17-21 Thursday Matthew 2 1-6 Friday Matthew 2 10-15 Saturday Luke 1 46-55 . 2:: :i:ii::i::L : Mommy said that this year I could help trim the tree, if I'd be very careful. The ornaments are so shiny and bright, and it's.such fun to decide where to put them. Mommy let me help fix our little crgche, too. I put in the figure of the Christ Child and He looked so pretty . . . all sort of pink and gold. We fixed the ci. che fir. .t because Mommy sald that we must al- ways remember that Christmas is, tirst of ,all, the Christ Child's birthday. When we finish trimming the tree, Mommy is going to read us the story about the first Christmas . . . about the shepherds and the angels . . . about the Wise Men and their star.., about the little Jesus, born in Bethlehem, in a manger. Mommy's told me the story before but she says that this year I'm big enough to stay up with the rest and bear her read it. And, of course, we'll go to Church, and Mommy says I can carry my fur muff. I think this is going to be the best Christmas I've ever had! t Cop~H~ht 1#$9, geistet Adv. Service, Strasb~ \ This Advertisement SMITH & STRIDER FUNERAL HOME ~harles Town, W. Vs.
