Church of Our Father – Meeting Minutes Jul 24, 1886 (Rev. Browne to Preach)

Atlanta, Ga. Jul 24, 1886
Meeting of the Board of Trustees in the Ladies Room of the Church.
Present: Mr. Gude, chairman, Messrs. Winslow, Norrman, Klingelsmith and Mr. Chaney

Mr. Chaney state that the object of this meeting was to lay before the Board the proposition of inviting the Rev. E.C.L. Browne of Charleston, SC to occupy his pulpit during the month of September. Mr. Chaney said it was much against his wishes that the Church should be closed entirely for two months and as Mr. Browne could make it convenient to preach for us during Sept.

He urged that we authorize him to invite him and make such arrangements regarding compensation and other matters with him as he thought best.

The board concurring on Mr. Chaney’s views, Mr. Browne’s kind offer to conduct our services during the month of September was gratefully acknowledged and accepted and Mr. Chaney received hearty thanks of the Board for bringing about the much-desired September church services.

After authorizing Mr. Chaney to secure a space for our church in a new church chart, the board adjourned.



J.M. Klingelsmith, Secretary
