"Practical Christianity is being preached, taught, and lived."


The church gives its own movie shows, censored by the mothers of the church. 

Dances are held in the church gymnasium. Mothers and fathers attempt old-fashioned quadrilles and polkas while the youngsters dance the hesitation.

There is a billiard table in the boys' clubroom. The boys also play basketball and center ball. 

Mothers sew at the church and have noonday luncheon together. The older wives help and counsel younger wives.

The men meet in the evenings and discuss everything under the sun.
