Assisted by Larry Spicer, youth minister at Lethbridge Church of the Nazarene, Mr. Hazell has spearheaded the gospel outreach set for Feb. 11-22.

"We open at p.m. and will stay open each night as long as there is an Mr. Hazell said this week. "Possibly, we will also open the door during the day as a counselling service." Mr. Hazell reports copies of a modern Bible translation, entitled Touched will be available free at the coffee house. And, he hopes, a shipment of French language New Testaments will also arrive in time for distribution. Pastors and youth leaders sincere- ly interested in an evangelical thrust during the Winter Games have been invited to contact Mr. Hazell. Volunteers are needed to staff the coffee house. Close by the Sportsplex, a billboard will invite a similar audience to visit and investigate the message of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elder Lee Snarr and Elder Rick Bennett, two of the senior LDS mis- sionaries supervising work in Lethbridge, have arranged a visitor's centre in the Stake House. "We offer visitors a tour of the building, explaining the restoration of the Gospel, various church aux- iliaries and the Family Home Even- ing programs. We will also show films upon Elder Snarr said this week. The LDS project will operate daily except Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. In addition, an afternoon of cartoon entertainment for children will be featured Feb. 20 commenc- ing p.m. Youngsters will be chaperoned until cartoon session ceases at 4 p.m., Elder Snarr said. Elder Snarr added full time mis- sionaries considered operating a drop in centre at the LDS Seminary, east of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. However, organizers found the building was already heavily booked for other church functions. An interfaith group representing several Lethbridge congregations has sponsoring two drop-in centres for athletes. Bill Roycroft is co- ordinating the programs at St. Andrew's Presbyterian and First Baptist Churches. EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH I2lti AviniM ind Mayor Mogrith Drivt Pmtor: RIV. H. J.

Larry Hankin- son. "Our congregation is very conscious of the example set by Andrew the disciple. He introduced people to Jesus. We want to give support, to create an environment for spiritual growth. But Presbyterians don't lead peo- ple around by the Mr. Hankinson said in a recent interview. Most of the 18 new confirm- ed members at St. Andrew's last year came through regular preparation classes for children of Presbyterian families. Mr. Hankinson said he could perhaps gain more converts if he preached the ten com- mandments of Presbyterian belief.

School Service "SPIRIT" Mooting READING ROOM Open Noon p.m. Thurs., Sat. enquirers think through their own faith for themselves. Normally, a seven year church school program paves the way to a two to three year catechism study and communicant class. Subse- quently, a decision is usually reached concerning public profession of faith and willingness to serve in the Christian church. "Baptists, Lutherans, Anglicans, United members can become a Presbyterian by Mr. Hankinson said. "If for some reason the transfer is opposed or denied, we ask for a re affirmation of faith. AH candidates are en- couraged to attend communi- cant classes which include instruction in Presbyterian history, doctrine and government." The catechism study is iden- tical to the United Church of Canada. Both denominations subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith. Alternative forms of bap- tism are usually accepted by Presbyterians, Mr. Hankinson said. "I have averaged about three adult baptisms by im- mersion each year during my ministry Mr. Hankinson said. "We borrow the First Bap- tist pool. They heat the bap- tistry up and give me a pair of leaky boots to remind me where I Mr. Hankinson added with cheerful relish. Attributing interest in im- mersion to the influence of charismatic groups, Mr. Hankinson said most of the candidates are either young adults or elderly people getting ready to die. Immer- sion provides a symbol of par- ticipation in Christ, Mr. Hankinson suggested. "We don't emphasize the method so much as the meaning. Baptists say immer- sion is a symbol of belief. Presbyterians believe the Gospel of Jesus is for the smallest child and that belief cannot come about unless the Holy Spirit begins first to work in a youngster's, heart. That's why we encourage children to be baptized." St. Andrew's Church records report 18 baptized membeis, including three by immersion, during the past year.
