Among the Churches

It is often very encouraging to a struggling church to know the experience of others, so we, First Church of Christ, Scientist, Burlington, Vt., send our mite for publication.

We started with two students of one of the Mother's students in 1895. After these two had met once a week for a short time to study the lesson, they were joined by a family of three, and in 1896 were joined by two other families, one of them from Essex Junction, Vt., eight miles from here. In September, 1897, we moved into public rooms, and in June, 1898, into still better quarters.

In November of 1898 we organized as a church, with twelve members, some of whom have since moved away. Our average attendance is about fifteen, though we have had as many as thirty-six present. We have placed two copies of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," one of "Miscellaneous Writings." and the Journal in the Fletcher Free Library; one copy each of Science and Health, "Miscellaneous Writings," and Journal in the Billings Library and Essex Junction, Vt., Library; one copy of Science and Health in the County Jail, and one in the library at Newbury, Vt. A few years ago the Mother presented a copy of Science and Health, third edition, to the Fletcher Free Library, making three copies now in constant circulation.
