Methodist Laymen to Meet in Caddo Oct. 4
A meeting of laymen of the Methodist Church of the Durant, Hugo, and McAllister districts is to be held in Caddo, Sunday, Oct. 4th beginning at 11 o’clock.
An afternoon and evening session will be held.
G. L. Morelock, general secretary of the board of lay activities, will be here and deliver two addresses.
He brings a message that grips the hearts of men; he points men to a fuller and more useful life. He is one of the best speakers in Southern Methodism and it will be a real treat to hear him.
Several other splendid speakers are on the program which is filled though out the day with things of vital interest to the men of the church.
The Wesley Brotherhood will be host to the visiting brethren and will serve lunch and supper in the club house.
G. A. Crossett, lay leader of the Durant district, who is the prime mover of the meeting, has received assurance from a large number of laymen that they are coming to this meeting. Caddo feels honored to have such a representative gathering of men in her midst and will do her best to make their visit pleasant and profitable.
Final arrangements were made Monday evening to take care of the visitors who come to Caddo Sunday.
Two meals will be served to the visitors in the Club House. It is expected that more than 200 visitors will be in Caddo that day, it being the occasion of the 3-District Laymen’s Convention of the Methodist Church.
Much greater interest is being taken each week in the Bible study and the men are knowing more about this wonderful book as they go along.
Several plans are on foot for winter activities. Those members who miss these meetings will miss something really worthwhile. F. Manning, Harry Pace and Frank Williams will be the entertainers next Monday evening. Dick Grayson, W. N. Potter and R. M Wise were hosts this week. They served pop and sandwiches.
