Church gives relief to its own poor who are members, and to nonmembers with whom it is brought in contact. A Boy's Brigade, A Young Men's Union, with gymnasium and social rooms, a Men's Club, holding monthly public meetings with informal lecture on subjects of common interest, are conducted under the auspices of the church.
