Golden Text: "As the Father hath sent me, even so send I you."--John 20: 2"1. Le~son Text,: Matt 18:15-7; Acts 1:8; 2:42: 6:1-4; 11:27-$0; 13:1-3; I John 1:3. Usually, in a consideration of the church, we think of the subject from the st[mdpoint of the indivM- ual's contribution to the church. Iu tLis lesson, we will approacil the sobject from another angle--~hat of the church's contribution to the in- dividual. Just what is the mission of the church? We believe that a proper Bells to Toll Hitler's Knell Are] Made by German-born Canadian[ SOMEWHERE out on the heaving Atlantic. the ship's bell of a ,Canadian corvette tolls the hoUr and a sailor, his face lashed with , the wind and the spray, gratefally prepares to go below after a long spell on watch. "Sure sounds good to hear that bell," he remarks ae one of hie mates appears to relieve him. What the sailor and a good many other Canadians probably wouldn't know is that the melodious bell was manufactured in a little machine shop on a farm a mile and a half OUt of Kitchener, Ontario, by a eraftmnan from Germany. Born in Leipzig district but a natnralised Canadian citizen sev- eral years before the outbreak of war. Carl Stoermer, shown above, mLkss bells and muneplates for sMIqa~ls from eeast to coast. H~ humming shop stands as a perfect example of how little plants all over 0anad~ are bel~ utlliHd to speed production. Before leaving Oernma~ 8toer~ mr heeded a bell-nm]dng Arm tlmt loyed to, n. as. [ though there was little demand for his type of craftsmanship in Canada before the outbreak of war, the ehipbuilding expansion started or- dere pouring in. In a barn that formerly housed the livestock of the farm, he set up a foundry and ma- chine shop. The sand used as cores for his bell.molds he gets from his ow~ farm. Formerly. it w~ believed that this special sand had to be im- ported from the United States. Now the experts are studying hie meth- ods to see whether Canadian sand can be used for other moulding pur- poses which at present require im- ported sand. Most of hie equipment is home made. Perhaps the most ingenious item is his lathe. He obtains zpeed variations on this mnshine by using an old automobile transmission picked from the scrap heap. Unlike some of the larger war plants of the Dominion. ha doesn't need 8~r pro, duetion enginser8 or emciency ex-i pore. Whea ha gets little b*hlndt in hie ot~tere he shift8 into Iflgh[ reef atte to tr. l answer ,to tha~: quc~ion is that "the church is an institution composed of believers, banded together to do the ~vill of GOd." The church's primary business is to win the unsaved to Christ. thus promoting Christ's comprehensive program. Just before Jesus left his chsclples, he gave them. and through them, to us. what we have come to call "The Great Commission." This is to be found in Matt: 28:18-20. You are probably familiar with this great command of Jesus, but, for the prac- tical purpose of this lesson, we will review somewhat. Where are Christ's disciples to go? They were to go everywhere~to all nations. Who was to go? Every- one who heard and accepted the Gospel had the responsibility to be a witness for Christ. What were they to do? (1) They were to make dis- c!ples; (2) baptize those won: and, ~3) teach the new believers to ob- serve and to obey all the commands of Jesus. Why should they go? (1) ,~,; Jesus was soon to go away, they were t~ carry on his work in the world; (2) he had all power; and, ,3) he would go with them. Another function of the church isI revealed by study of I John 1:3 and i .Matthew ]8:15-17, that is to provide I an atmosphere of fellowship which !s conducive fo spiritual growth. One c,f the greatest advantages to the ;,,dividual church member lies in as- sociation with other Christian char- ;:tiers. It is the duty of the church to provide for its members an at- mosphere in which they can grow nora like Christ. In this connection, one writer de- clares, "The church may well he o,~mDared to a flower garden. The flowers arc planted together in an :,rdorly arrangement and often the ~.arden plo~ is protected by a fence or a walk. Of course, plants may ~,',~w on th~ outside of the plot. but Ihey receive less cultivation and are exposed to greater dangers. One may not be aware of the protection I hus found in an active church mem- bership, but it is none tho loss real " When we speak of fellowship, it miuht be interesting to learn its root meaning. Its simplest defini- tion is companionship, which comes from two Latin words: con, together, and Danis, bread. So that literally a companion is one with whom we cat bread. Thus, it is fitting that we 0pply this word to our church ~o- ciates, those with whom we eat the broad of the Lord's table. The church also offers a niece for the public worship of God. Through worship, the individuM i~ bron~ht lo . keener sense of the Lord's pres- ,-o~, ;n his lifo. which will result in })o~t~,, understnnding of God's will "~r one's life; which, in turn, will in- -;-~ the individual worshipper to a ~fo of helpful service. "rb~ church also inspires individ- " '-' *n mutual sharing. This not c.nly involves the shnriw, of money "-,-n,,-b finaw'iM crmtv;bul;on~ 0 'he nro~ram of the church, but Msn fo~,'~' the ~nirit of ~enorn!fv Pnd thnu,htfulno~ for tb"~ r~,~d~ of ~:o "~.~*,,..~o momborq rff the oht,roh fl~e community and ~he worM.

SUDDEN DEATH FOR AXIS RAIDERS TT~,o.I lhe lurrets of Canada's ]P P, olingl)'eke boml)ers thesc Br.wnina machine gun~ promise su0ften te;tth to the enemy who eros:as tht,ir sights.

The turret, a highly complex" piece of equipment, Is motor driven and is made to revolve 360 degrees as easily as a roulette wheel. These gun turrets are installed in the mid-aft section of the Bolingbroke fuselage, and this type of aircraft is now used principally as a bomb- ing and gunnery trainer. The electrician, left foreground, is wiring a testing panel to a turret to check performance, while other workmen are busy putting a finish. ing touch to completed equipment. Canada is now contributing a large share of the aircraft for the British Commonwealth Air Train- ing Plan, of which the Boltngbroke bombers are only one type. The Passed by Censor Bristol Bolingbroke, a twin-engined reconnaissance bomber, requires several huudred nlan-hours to build, aud costs in the neighborhood of $85.000. The plant where these: sturdy craft are turned out under] contract with the Department of~ Munitions and Supply is one of the l largest in the Dominion, employingi more than 4,000 on the production of this aircraft alone. Canada's out-!. put of aircraft has now stepped upI to about 400 a month, which on aI basis of population would compare with a production of 5,000 in the United States, and ther~ are still! some plants which have not yetI reached the production stage. Canada's overhaul and repair pro-: gram has itself developed into a major industry. With a personnel, now numbering in the thousands,, the program is being carried out in some 30 plants of all types stra- tegically located across the Domin- ion Canada manufactures seven other types of service planes and one tYpe i of transport aircraft.
