WILL YOU ATTEND THE INDIANAPOLIS CONVENTION?
SHOULD BE RECEIVED PROMPTLY TO SECURE ACCOMMODATIONS. THE
CITY WILL BE CROWDED WITH EPWORTH LEAGUERS.
Arrangements are completed for a Convention of believers in the Second Coming of the Lord and the Plan of the Ages,—to be held at Indianapolis, Ind., July 21st to 23d, as follows:—
The Railroad fare will be one-half the usual, except from a few points which will add $2 to the one fare for round trip. All passenger trains run into Union Depot, which is about seven blocks distant from the meeting place of the Convention—”Shover’s Hall,” on Market Street, between Alabama and New Jersey streets.
Accommodations—good and clean—have been arranged for, at the very reasonable rate of ninety-five cents per day, at “Barton’s Hotel,” No. 29 Virginia Ave. Such ZION’S WATCH TOWER readers as cannot afford even this modest sum, will be entertained free, by the Indianapolis friends, with great pleasure. Those who ride to the hotel can take any car leaving the Union depot and should ask for “transfer” when they pay their fare. A “Reception Committee” will meet all the friends at the Barton Hotel—except during convention hours, when it will be at Shover’s Hall, as above mentioned.
The following program will be followed closely as practicable:
Friday, July 21st.—The opening “rally” will be at 10 A.M., conducted by Brother C. A. Owen—an opportunity for getting generally acquainted. At 3 P.M. the assembly will be addressed by the Editor of this Journal from the text—”Looking for the blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2:13.) At 7:30 P.M. an address on the Ages and Dispensations of the divine plan, illustrated by the Chart of the Ages, may be expected.
Saturday, July 22d.—Testimony Meeting at 8 A.M. Preaching at 10:30 A.M. by the Editor of this Journal: subject, “The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus.” (Rom. 8:2.) At 3 P.M. a discourse by Bro. M. L. McPhail—”Sanctify them through thy Truth.” At 7:30 P.M. a Chart discourse by Bro. O. A. Koetitz.
Sunday, July 23d.—Testimony Meeting 8:30 A.M.; at 10:30 a discourse by Bro. M. L. Staples on “The Offence of the Cross;” at 3 P.M., “I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ,” by the Editor; at 7:30 P.M., “Preserving the Unity of the Spirit in the bonds of peace”—several speakers.
All who love the Lord, trust in the precious blood and wait for his Kingdom, are cordially invited to attend this Convention which recognizes only the one Church and her one Lord, one faith and one baptism. All such will please address the WATCH TOWER SOCIETY as soon as they know definitely that they will attend, stating in few words who will be of their party, and whether or not they will stop at the hotel.
An opportunity will be afforded for symbolizing baptism.
