Called a Minister
The Christian church of Caddo, has called Elder J. W. Harp of Kowa, Okla. as their minister and arrangements have been made to have preaching on the first Sunday in each month throughout the year.
Elder Harp is a man of fine ability. He holds his audience from beginning to end of his sermons, he is a man who has a knowledge of human nature as well as knowledge of the Bible, he is not radical, but he believes the Bible and preaches it in love and power.
The elder is well known in Oklahoma as he has filled some of the best pulpits in the state and has served as evangelist under the state board of the church. Remember the date of the appointment and don’t fail to hear him.
