New Congregations

The following is from Charles Gibson: TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

On Sunday, June 18, 1983 a new congregation was formed and began to meet in Rockdale, Texas.

For a number of years the Murry St. congregation in Rockdale has been permeated with the spirit of worldliness, liberalism, and modernism and laxity of Christian discipline. The point has been reached where the only distinguishing mark of separation from the denominational world is the name, "Church of Christ."

The small minority within the congregation who tried to stem the tide of digression, seeing the point of no return had been reached, separated themselves and formed a new congregation.

This new congregation will be known as the "Downtown Church of Christ." It begins with 14 adult members from eight families. The attendance has run about 25 per service and the contribution around $90-$100 per week. The meeting house is located in the center of town at 305 E. Cameron Ave. (The main highway through town). Charles A. Gibson will be our preacher.

It is our determined purpose to found a New Testament church, standing four-square for the Truth in all things. We covet your prayers that we may be equal to the task.

Signed: Homer Smith, W. H. Ahrendt, Carroll Holt, Sessions Pounders and Charles Gibson.
