The Christian Endeavor Home Missionary Topic for which we shall provide the next program is for April 28th, "The Home Mission Work of My Denomination-a Bird's-eye View.” This topic is most opportune, coming as it does in the first month of the new fiscal year. It should have faithful, prayerful preparation, under supervision of the pastor, or some one thoroughly informed of the specific work assigned by the General Assembly to the Board of Home Missions and the Woman's Board. Our young people lack this knowledge and too many show no desire for it. There is some encouragement along this line of training, but room for vast improvement. The young people are well worth all the time and talents we can devote to them.
A good suggestion comes from Rev. J. G. Reynolds, of Effingham, Ill., who tells us of his “Morning Worship Club” as a means of keeping the young people interested in the church services. He says: “The children enjoy staying after Sunday school for the services when they realize they are a part of the congregation, and that a record is kept of their attendance. Those of our church are arranged in three companies—Company Y, young ladies almost sixteen, Company G, the girls under fourteen, and Company B, the boys under sixteen. Names are enrolled on cards and each company has a captain who keeps the record of attendance. Each company has a social once a quarter. This could be enlarged to include attendance at their young people's meetings and preparation for them. Lack of preparation is one of the sins of the day in our young people's work.
