Sunday School Times–Morning/Afternoon

16-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today: 

Sunday, June 11, 1911: Went to Sunday school this morning and managed to get there when it was almost over. Carrie and I went up to Rhone’s this afternoon. A thunderstorm is raging now.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Interesting that Grandma mentions that Sunday school was held in the morning—on April 9 she indicated that it was held in the afternoon.  This provides further support that the church Grandma attended was part of a parish that had one minister who served several churches. The church service and Sunday school times probably regularly rotated between more and less desired times so that members of all of the churches in the parish felt like they were being treated fairly.
