This recording begins with a woman congratulating the students on their promotion. She introduces Arthur C. Searles, who talks about having God, education, and voting rights as a path to freedom. He talks about Lewis B. Hershey, comparing his energy to young people to motivate them to being useful for God. Dell takes collections, followed by “Blessed Assurance” among others. Dell leads a prayer for the sick and deceased. Another man talks about Jesus being betrayed and that sometimes being a Christian is challenging, which leads to a call and response with the audience.
