W. M. U. Entertained At the Pettus Home
One of the most enjoyable and delightful meetings the Women’s Missionary Union of the First Baptist church has held this year was the one on Tuesday afternoon at 4 o’clock with Mrs. R. E. Pettus of West Holmes St. The occasion was the regular monthly mission, literary and social affair and the well-arranged program with Mrs. Frank Lynch as leader assisted by a number of co-workers was both profitable and interesting.
The subject was “Mission Stewardship” divided into the following outlined __ __ __.
“My money creed”—Mrs. Lynch.
“Whose is it? Mine or God’s?” by Mrs. Oscar Harris.
“The sin we are afraid to mention” by Mrs. C. G. Dillard.
“The right side of giving” by Ms. Jack Moore.
“Example of Chinese Stewardship” by Mrs. Annie Harris.
“What we withhold” by Mrs. Davis.
The music was furnished by Mrs. Herbert Johnson and Miss Bessie Pettus with Mrs. Frank Ware accompanist.
At the close of the program the social hour with the hostess was a very enjoyable feature. The guests were invited out on the veranda where a most delicious ice cream, cakes and nuts course was served. The house was decorated in garden blossoms, the pink lily being most conspicuous in the parlor. The union voted to discontinue meetings during the remainder of August.
