New Churches

Through the effort of Joe Watson and B. K. (Doc) Holloday, who have recently moved to Lawton, Oklahoma, a church according to the New Testament is now meeting in this city. On Sept. 13th there were 13 people present with a contribution of $25. It is known as the Brockland church of Christ and is located at 68th and Birch, just off Casche Road, in western Lawton. They conducted a meeting the middle of September with Jack Holt of Richardson, Texas doing the preaching.

Brother John Young writes to tell us that a new church is now meeting in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Because of the transgression in the other churches it was necessary for seven families to establish a congregation after the divine pattern. They are meeting in Room 14 of the Jackson Square building. For further information concerning this work contact either: John L. Young, Jr., 132 W. Gettysburg Ave., Oak Ridge, Tenn., Tel. 483-5584 or Henry W. Horton, RFD No. 17, Knoxville, Tenn., Tel. 538-6663.
