Herbert Frazer, 1900 W. Elizabeth, Fort Collins, Colo. 80621: "On August 7 a new congregation began in Fort Collins, Colorado. This work has been established in response to a serious and pressing need in the area.

Only a very few churches in the state can be rightly reckoned as faithful. Most have been or are currently being led into liberalism. For several years I witnessed as church after church ignored warning and became proponents of institutionalism and centralization. I have also seen the "ultra-liberalism" as espoused by such men as Robert Meyers, Carl Ketcherside, et al., with the plea for fellowship despite basic differences, more and more advocated. Fort Collins has been affected by this movement to a very marked degree. Conditions have so worsened that a number, after earnest efforts to check the tide of apostasy within the congregation, determined to begin a new congregation fully devoted to the Truth. Such new work was undertaken only after sober appraisal convinced them that this was clearly called for.

The city of Fort Collins has a population of between 35,000 and 40,000 permanent residents. In addition, Colorado State University is located here, with a student body of 12,700.

The new congregation, to be known as the Foothills church, began with 17 members. Property has been purchased, which is serving as temporary meeting place as well as residence for the preacher. The location is 1900 W. Elizabeth.

I began working with this church at its beginning. We have been greatly encouraged during these few weeks. We feel that brighter days are ahead for the Lord's cause in the area. Should the reader know of those here to whom we might be of assistance, we would be happy to hear about them."
