Two County Churches Receive Recognition

AMES, Ia., Feb. 24 -- (UP) --Sixty-five Iowa churches today had received certificates of merit for distinguished rural church work. Awards were made at the annual meeting of the Iowa Christian Rural Fellowship held at Ames over the week-end.

The awards are made annually by the Iowa State college extension service to recognize the outstanding cooperative church work and to encourage the strengthening of spiritual leadership in rural communities.

Jefferson county churches receiving awards were the Round Prairie Baptist church in Lockridge of which the Rev. Warren L. Green is pastor, and the Bethesda Methodist church, the Rev. Merle Hill, pastor.

LOCKRIDGE, IA. -- Round Prairie Baptist Church, 4 miles south of here, will observe its 103rd anniversary today with special morning and afternoon services and a noon picnic dinner. Special speaker will be the Rev. Bobby Dwiggins, pastor of the Mark (Ia.) Baptist church. The congregation, founded in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin WORKMAN near the present church site, built its first church of logs hewn by the members. Now drawing worshipers from the Salem, Stockport, Mount Pleasant and Lockridge areas, the church supports missionaries in Japan, Africa, Formosa and South America.
