Christian Harmony report

We had a great Christian Harmony singing at Redland on the 24th. Several new people were in attendance, some who had never attended a Christian Harmony singing before. We were especially pleased to have Mr. & Mrs. H. T. Parris of Winona, TX visiting with us. Mr. Parris is the son of O. A. Parris, who helped create the 1958 revision of the Christian Harmony book. Many of the singers came to our house on Saturday night for food, fellowship and more singing. We had a great singing the next day at Pine Grove also.

$63 donation was received for the Redland Community Center.

Recent History

A big part of the recent history of Redland Church is the Laneville Involvement Committee. LIC was formed in the fall of 1992. This group promoted several projects around the Laneville area -- including a sign at Barnhart Bridge, the Helpinstill Memorial Park, the Redland Cookbook, and the restoration of the Redland Church Community Center. Through the work of the LIC, the old building received leveling, a new coat of paint and other renovations. In 1993 the officers were: Gene Barron, Jack Mosley, Opal Jennings, Carol Arnold and Bobby Helpinstill.
