Augusta Stone Church (ENLARGED) Dedicated January 22, 1922 The enlargement of Augusta Stone Church was not prompted by sentimental reasons-for sentiment naturally pulled in the opposite direction; and not by ostentation-that is not the characteristic of the descendants of unprotentious [unpretentious] forbears. Certainly it was not prompted by a desire to dispose of surplus wealth-that not being necessary in the country church at present-but entirely by an imperative need for Sunday school equipment and to meet the needs of enlarged hopes and efforts for expansion and development, so characteristic of all aggressive, forward looking churches of today. That the people have co-operated their faith and prayers with the wise, tactful, and faithful building committee is evidenced by the building you occupy today. Messrs. Edward McKim McCue, chairman, J. F. Brooks, T. J. Roller, Millard Johnson, and J. M. McCue being the committee, Major C. S. Roller, Jr., chairman of finance committee, and Jno. D. Palmer treasurer of building fund. This enlarged equipment means enlarged responsibility upon the church for better service to the immediate community; its two outposts, Bezetha and New Hope, and a deepening of our interest in the work of the church at large, and especially in our two representatives at the front, Miss See in Brazil, and Mr. Gilliam in Africa.
