Session Minutes 1923-1924

 

 

On November 18, 1923, “H.L. Frasher reported on the matter of a building in North Gainesville for a mission Sunday School, his report stating that a suitable building could be secured at a rental of $100 per year.  Apparently that was done because in April it was reported that the “North Gainesville Sunday School was discussed and it was voted to ask the Men’s Bible Class to take care of the rent expense in the future.”

 

In 1924, First Presbyterian Church, together with 5 other local churches, sponsored a nationally known evangelist, Rev. James Rayburn, who came to Gainesville and held revivals for six weeks, in a specially constructed tabernacle capable of accommodating 2800 people.
