By request Rev. Moore Sanborn made an informal report of the meeting of the Southern Conference held at Louisville, Ky., May 8th –  9th and 10th 1906. He reported that the Atlanta church was represented by seven delegates which was the largest in attendance at the meeting. The Louisville meeting was full of good cheer, it was the desire to hold the next Conference at Chattanooga, Tenn.

Owing to the absence of Mr. Chas. H. Behre the delegate appointed to represent our church at the annual meeting of the A.U.A., which was held at Boston, Mass., no report was made of said meeting.

Mr. Hamilton Douglas made a verbal report of the Sunday school, saying that the school was a good one, and asked the earnest co-operation of the members of the church by at least lending their presence occasionally.

The question of closing the church during July and August while the pastor was off on vacation was freely discussed, and upon motion it was decided not to hold services during July and August, but in order to maintain interest in the church work, it was decided to continue the Sunday school during July changing the hour to 1:100 A.M. and holding the Sunday school in the auditorium, at which all of the older members of the church who were present promised to attend Sunday school as long as it was continued during the absence of the pastor.

There being no further business, on motion the meeting adjourned, after which under the auspices of the ladies of the Woman’s Alliance a social was held, and refreshments served, some seventy-five members and friends attending the social, which was served upstairs and a very pleasant and enjoyable time was had by every one present.
