Liberal Christian Church – Meeting Minutes, Jun 1, 1926 (Monthly Trustee Meeting)


June 1, 1926.

The regular meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Liberal Christian Church was held at the Kimball House restaurant at 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 1, 1926, all members being present except Mrs. Stanford. Mr. T. C. Perkins, chairman of the Finance Committee, and Dr. Rowlett, Chairman of the Pulpit Supply Committee, were also present. While supper was being served, President Harding called the meeting to order, and a motion was made and carried that to save time the reading of the minutes of the May meeting was postponed until the next regular meeting.

There was some discussion of the fact that an announcement had been made from the pulpit on the last Sunday in May that there would be no further Sunday morning services for the summer. Rowlett of the Pulpit Supply Committee explained that this was a misunderstanding of the action taken by that committee and that the announcement had been made by mistake. The Board then voted that Sunday morning services be held through June.

Mr. H. C. Blake brought to the attention of the Board the canvass being made for the Jewish Relief Fund, and he made a motion that in view of Dr. Marx’s kind help to us in filling our pulpit on two recent Sundays, the Board authorize the giving to Dr. Marx by this church of $25.00 for the Jewish Relief Fund. This motion was carried, and Mr. Scott, the Clerk of the Board, was asked to write Dr. Marx a cordial letter inclosing the check.

The action of the Pulpit Supply Committee in cancelling the engagement of Dr. Henry B. Taylor for the first two Sundays in June had brought from Mr. Taylor that he felt impelled to see that Mr. Lewis who had agreed to fill his pulpit in Meriden, Ct. was paid $20.00, and that he had incurred himself some incidental expenses for his proposed trip to Atlanta. The Board then voted that a Check for $25.00 be sent to Dr. Taylor to reimburse him for the amount that he would have to give Mr. Lewis and for his own preliminary expenses.

Through the courtesy of Dr. Lowe of the Universalist General Convention, it was announced that Rev. Roger F. Etz, General Secretary, could be in Atlanta on July 4 and deliver the sermon if the church desired. It was thereupon voted to hold services in the church on that date.

Mr. Rogers, the Treasurer, handed around financial statements showing that the cash on hand amounted to $59.54. He stated that the matter of protecting the church carpet from moths had been attended to.

The meeting then adjourned,


Arthur H. Scott, Clerk.
