  • Why'dya bring 'em here?
  • They's my comp'ny!
  • ♪There's a land beyond the river...♪
  • There's a land beyond the river...
  • Copernia explained to Scout that Jem was growing up and maturing, and that this would change his behavior.
  • You have been causing great conflict in your life, but it does not have to stand for any longer.
  • Since Atticus was busy one Sunday, Copernia brought Jem and Scout to her church, First Purchase. Once they arrived, a woman named Lula made them feel unwelcome since they were two white children in a church meant for blacks, but the others felt differently. While this happened, Scout and Jem also noticed how Copernia began talking in their slang, to their surprise.
  • We must give at least ten dollars -- Mrs. Robinson needs it. No one is leaving until then!
  • There were not hymn books for everyone since the church was not funded whatsoever (and due to this was also very rundown), so Zeebo, the one with the only hymn book, read the verses aloud in front of the pews. In return, the crowd repeated back the verses in song. Jem and Scout found this to be very different from their usual church services.
  • Well...
  • What had Tom Robinson done anyway... and why were you talking like that in there?
  • Scout and Jem also noticed how different the sermons were. Reverend Sykes's sermons specifically addressed people's wrongdoings and things that they could improve on.
  • At the end of the service, Reverend Sykes made everyone band together to give ten dollars to the offering. This was going to be given to Tim Robinson's wife, who was having financial struggles due to her husband being in jail. He did not allow anyone to leave until this goal was met.
  • After they exited the church, Scout and Jem had many questions for Copernia. They asked about Tom Robinson, and why Copernia acted the way she did in the church. This conversation lead to her explaining many things about the society that her church people were in, such as how most of them couldn't read besides her, Zeebo, and two others.
