At the Spring street Free Baptist church at Amesbury, Mass., of which Rev. I. S. Jones has been the pastor for nearly seven years, a parish supper and roll call was held last Tuesday evening. It was a very pleasant affair. What a supper! What a feast of good things! The pastor, Mr. Jones certainly has a firm grip on the adherents of his church. The Rev. Lincoln Phillips, pastor of the Free Baptist church at Hampton, was by invitation, the guest of Rev. I. S. Jones, The Free Baptist church at Amesbury, is surely on the up grade, struggling for victory and the right. May God richly bless Brother Jones and his flock.
Tuesday evening, under the auspices of the Ladies Aid society, "Our Church Fair," which was given in February by the Monday club, was repeated in the town hall. As late as Tuesday morning it was found that two of the ladies were unable to be present, so the parts were taken by Miss Warner of North Hampton and Mrs. Emma Young, both filling the parts so well it is a question if any in the audience could have selected the two parts that were taken on such a short notice. Home made candies, cakes and aprons found ready sale. The time intervening between the entertainment and the car running to the beach was spent in games by the young people, music being furnished by Miss Locke, piano; Ashton Lindsey, violin; Helen Hobbs, drum; and Lola Steward, tambourine.
Next Sunday will be observed as Easter Sunday. At the morning service at the Free Baptist church, the pastor, Rev. W. Lincoln Phillips, will preach an Easter sermon from I. Cor. 15:20. The ladies choir will sing a selection entitled, "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth." The Chorus choir will sing the hymns, doxology and the response. Mrs. Minny Fennell will sing an Easter solo. The Sunday school will meet at the close of the morning service. Choir rehearsal directly at the close of the Sunday school. If you have nowhere else to go, you are invited and will be welcome at the Easter services. There will be good music consisting of orchestra, songs, duets, solos, violin solo, violin duet, chorus singing and literary exercises. Mid-week prayer and social service Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Come and help us. You are needed. You will count one.
Christ hath broken every chain
Hark, angelic voices cry,
Singing evermore on high.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord"
