The Bells. both Dedication services for the Sko- i trinal Statement drawn up and natives of North Ireland, had on- accepted and a school bus tcquired. I ly been in America a few years, komish Community Church are . plazmed for 2 p.m. Nov. 24 at the church. The services are to mark the dedication of the building started in 1959 and done mostly with vol- unteer labor. Finishing touches were complet- ed on the building this summer and fall and it is now ready for dedication. No one seems certain just when Sunday school or church services were first held in Skokomish Val- ley. The Sunday school was al- ready established when Arvid Johnson, the church's oldest mem- ber', moved into the valley. He first attended as a teenage boy almost 50 years ago. From this obscure beginning has emerged what is now known as Skokomish Community church. In the early days the small Sun- day school was conducted by de- Voted Christians of the commun- Skokomish had finally come into its own, A prominent valley resident. Ted Richert. donated an acre of land with an accompanying house to be bought for a parsonage. A building committee was chosen to discuss floor plans and obtain a blueprint The H0nter Brbthers. pioneer residents of the fertile val- ley, gave rough lumber for the framework. Actual work on the new church building began in the spring of 1959. Many interested men made enthusiastic use of their various skills and talents. At long last a dream was being realized. Laying the cement foundation was a slow. tendious process, but the faithful few eventually com- pleted the job. In the spring of 1960, when the rain clouds cleared away, the framework of the church structure was nailed toge- ther. There were many workdays Connnunity Church so brought with them a delightful ,Irish brogue. They too were sent by Village Missions. TIlE WORK on the church build- ing continued, finishing 0uches b6ing added here and there. Much of the material was obtained at cost and most of tile labor was lonated by willing hands. A re- tired painter Charley Wilkinson. vohmteered to paifft the fllside walls. Several ladies got together and varnished the hand-made pews. One family presented the church with a reconditioned mim- eograph machine: another couple purchased 50 new hymn books. The happy day finally came when the building was sufficiently completed to be used for all the regular selwices. On Aug. 6, 1961. the congregation met for the first time in their exam building. With- in a couple weeks Roy. Mr. Bell called a work party a.nd a large number of adults and youngsters Faced with the certainty that (?hristmas 1963 will set an all- lime record for mailings of Christ- lnas cards and gifts. Postmaster J. H. Gray today requested your cooperation in his annual "Mail Early For Christmas" Campaign. The Postmaster said. "Here are I the thing.; to watch to be sure that every Christmas card and gift package will be delivered be- fore Christmas Eve. "First. check over your Christ- mas card and gift list very care- fully, be certain each address is complete with full name, street and number, city, state and zone or ZiP Code number. "Second. stock up soon on stur- dy packing materials for your gift packages, including heavy wrapping paper, corrugated ear- tons. strong cord and paper adhe- sive tape. "Third, buy your postage, stamps now. Be sure to use the-colorful new five cent Christmas Tree stamps on your cards. "Fourth procure free labels from your post office which read "All for Local Delivery", and, "All for out-of-town delivery", so that yon can sort your Christmas cards .into two groups, with addresses all facing one way, thus insuring fast delivery. "Fifth be sure that your full name and address is on all of your Christmas card envelopes and ship- ping labels and be doubly sure to include your ZIP Code number in your return address. The Postmaster especially re- quests that you schedule your ity who felt the necessity for pro- viding Bible instruction for the youngsters of the area. The place f meeting was the little rural schoolhouse. For many years the Skokomish Sunday school continued faithfully to teach and encourage those who attended its services. Soon the lad- ies in the prayer circle began to pray definitely for a full-time pas- tor and a church building. THE HERMAN R. BURG fam- ily arrived in June. 1957. with their broken-down Lincoln and ov- erloaded trailer, to take over the pastorate of an unorganized band of Christian people. Village Mis- sions, a local mission board which supplies pastors for rural com- munities not yet self-supporting, had sent them across the miles from Minnesota to Washington. By eptember. 1957. several members were discussing the pos- sibility of erecting a church build- ing in which to hold the services. A meeting was called to begin thinking and talMng seriously of finding ways and means to con- struct a church. & blilding fund was started and the project was underway. Rev. Mr. Burg began proceed- ings to incorporate the Skokonlish Community Church so legal trans- actions could be carried on in ac- cordance with the laws of the state. Church officers were elected.
