New Congregation

The following is taken from the bulletin of the Preston Hi-way church of Christ, Louisville, Kentucky,

"Another sound church in this area: On Sunday, February 24, another sound church was begun In the Louisville area. It is located in the Thomas Jefferson school on Hamberg Pike in Jeffersonville, Ind. It will conduct services each Sunday afternoon at 2:30. Donald Townsley of the South End church spoke at the first service and our own brother Forest Hurst spoke last Sunday afternoon. Other preachers in March are to be: 10th, J. F. Dances, West End; 17th, Amos Davenport, Shepherdsville; 24th, Ronald Mosby, Valley Station.

Seventy were present for the first service, and the contribution was in excess of $50. We urge you to support this new church with your presence at their services.

The beginning of this church was necessitated by the liberalism of the Ninth and Meigs church in Jeffersonville. It is a continuing story all over the nation. When brethren cannot conscientiously go along with liberalism and there seems nothing they can do about it, they are forced to move out and start over that the community may have a church that is of Christ."
