REYNOLDS Grocer Greeneville St. In 1831 the much beloved Wil liam Steagall served thechureh. With the coming years New nan increased in size ami the member ship grew, the building was too small, and in 1855, during the pastorate of William E. Evans, the little church was moved to the pi act of the present Methodist’par- sonage, and added to, making what is known as “the old Church.’’ What hallowed memories cling around “the old Church,” when we recall the lives of the Steagalls, the Mitchells, the Dougherty's the (’larks, the neesesj and many, many others we have not space to mention. It was the generous- hearted Maj. M. R. Clark who pre sented “the old Church” with the first silver communion service. Again the fact presented itself that the borders must lie eidarged, as the flock had increased, and, during the pastorate of that noble, unselfish, sunny-spirited man, A. M. Thigpen, the corner-stone of our present Church was laid with great enthusiasm, on the 25th of August, 1874. “Long and imposing was the procession in whieh marched the Newnan Guards, the members of the bar, the Good Templars, the Corner-stone Club, the Masons and civilians.

After the reading of the lession, the pastor, Rev. W. W. Wadsworth, announced the second hymn, “I Love Thy Church, O God,” which was sung with great power by the vast audience. 'Dr. Boring then arose to preach the dedication sermon. His text was 2 Chronicles, 7:12-17. It was a grand sermon; and when the speak er closed, the entire congregation felt the influence of the divine pre sence, and seemed to realize that they were indeed within a holy, consecrated place. The lesson from the Old Testa ment was then read by ltev. Mr. Thigpen, and the lesson from the New Testament by the pastor. The trustees came forward around the a number of these articles to make room for other stock; and the spe cial prices are certain to make sales to all who come. The pastor, A. M.
