* The Visiting Church, Savior Baptist Church, Rev. Robert Burt, Pastor, met in this service

* Rev. R.S. Ruckett opened the meeting with remarks. He said that the officers and members of Mount Carmel were high honored to set the new Church. Scripture was read followed by prayer.

* Rev. Ruckett announced that The Busy Pastorís Guide would be used in setting up the new Church, and to be used for rules and regulations until a Constitution and By-laws could be made.
