The Women's Part

The Part Played by The Women

The Committee on Church Furniture in 1848.

Woman's part in church work is perhaps not as fully appreciated as it should be. Of course the time honored insitituion of the little prayer at mother's knee will never be surrendered and it would be a sorry world without the little prayer at mother's knee, but in the matter of the church it is too often the case that hasty credit is given to the men. In the matter of remodeling St. John's Reformed Church in 1848 we find the women working as hard and diligently as the men who fortunatley there is a record left whereby we may know just who they were.

While the sterner sex were concerned with the exterior work and the building thereof the women were forming themselves into a committee to purchase the furniture. The list of those who contributed to the furniture fund follows:
