CHURCH CHILDREN Teenagers aren't the only ones to get together to have fun and do church work. Early day Sunday school pupils of grade school age proudly named themselves "The Home Guards." Their teacher was Mrs. Darrow. They did home mission work for orphanages, mission schools, and hospitals. Under the guidance of the pastor's wife, Mrs. Luccock, in 1911, youngsters in her class organized under the title "The Queen Esthers." Mrs. Mamie Fisher led her Bethany Calss in home mission work and the support of a colored girl, Beatrice Rodriques in an orphanage in the south inn the 1950's. The Juniior Helpers Class taught by Mrs. Ruth Westover did mission work for an orphanage in Alaska and through the Bible Society and Meals for Millions Foundation. Sunday school members in 1896 numbered 177 and expenses for that year were $55.00. In 1986 there are 35 pupils in the church school. Mrs. Cheri Haynes is the superintendent. 22
