Vintage 1925 Epworth League Programs & Daily Schedules
In operation from 1889 to 1939, the original Epworth League was a Methodist young adult association for people aged 18 to 35. The purpose of the League was the promotion of intelligent and vital piety among the young people of the Church, and "to encourage and cultivate Christ-centered character in young adults around the world through community building, missions, and spiritual growth". The League took its name from the village of Epworth in Lincolnshire, England, the birthplace of John Wesley and Charles Wesley.
This set of two programs hails from the Epworth League's Pocono Institute at the State Normal School in East Stroudsburg, PA and the New York Area Epworth League at the Drew Theological Seminary in Madison, NJ. They date from July 4-13, 1925, and August 24-31, 1925. They outline the daily/hourly schedule of activities for each location for those weeks, along with faculty lists. The Pocono Institute program also offers a brief outline of the courses offered there.
An interesting an informative look at times past. Great pieces of vintage religious ephemera.
