Unitarian Church of Atlanta – Letter, Apr 1, 1908 (Merge with Universalists)

Apr 1, 1908 (Archivist: Undated letter, assumed date)

Members and Friends of the Unitarian Church:

The Quarterly Meeting of the Church will be held in the Sunday School Room on Monday night, April 13th, at 8.00 P. M.

It is imperative that every member or friend of the Church be present at this meeting as matters of vital importance to the Church are to be presented.

Possibly the question of most interest to us all will be that of whether it is possible or advisable to try to continue the Church, or to close it, thus abandoning the movement in Atlanta.

At this time the Church is in arrears, a condition much regretted by your Trustees. They however, find themselves unable to raise the necessary funds with which to meet their share of the current expenses.

The Church building is also reaching a condition making extensive repairs necessary a complete new floor in the Sunday School Room being one of the items, which will cost approximately $200.00.

We mention these matters in order to show the real needs of the situation and the fact that the financial phase of the matter must have other than passing attention.

From a numerical standpoint, there may also be a question presented as to whether the efforts of our small body as now being exerted might not be better used in other directions.

You will readily see the importance of your being present at this meeting, prepared to be heard from, and we trust that you will make a special effort to attend.

Monday Evening                APRIL 13th           8:00 P.M.

Respectfully,

By order of the Trustees. W.V. Francis, Clerk.
