Church News in the Selma Newspaper, May 15, 1930

Church news from The Johnsonian-Sun, Selma, N.C., Thursday, May 15, 1930

At the Selma Presbyterian Church

Sabbath School at 10 o’clock.

Preaching services 8 p.m.

Why go to church at all? Many people do not, they say they can live just as good a life and never bother about going to church. That is a right broad statement. Will a plant grow without rain? Will one rain suffice for a season? The same God who created the plant and herb also created the human soul. Many a soul has wilted and withered away, died, for the lack of Spiritual nourishment, just as plants are doing now without rain, and they are unconscious of it. How surprised some day they will be and how disappointed. But there will be no one to blame except “self.” Listen to what God says:
“Lo, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money: come ye, buy and eat.” Isa. 55.1.

The Presbyterian Church welcomes you to service next Sunday.

At the Mispah Presbyterian Church

Next Sunday night at 8 o’clock, there will be preaching services. What better thing can a man do than go to church? Perhaps one, he can practice the things he hears there. The greatest privilege God ever gave man was the privilege of service. You are invited to worship Him in His house Saturday evening at 8 o’clock.   –D.F. Waddell, Pastor
