Among the Churches

The First Church of Christ, Scientist, is now completed and the initial services will be held in it to-morrow (Sunday, April 15). The church is located on a handsome lot at the corner of McKinney Avenue and Travis Street, and it is to be supplemented later on by a larger and more pretentious church edifice. When that time arrives the present beautiful little structure will be devoted solely to Sunday School purposes. It is admirably arranged for church services, however, and in all its appointments is a little gem of beauty. To the energetic and faithful workers who compose the congregation is due much credit for the creation of this splendid place of worship. The building has been completed for some days, and the members of the church were busy yesterday and to-day in adding the finishing touches to the interior decorations. A reading room supplements the auditorium—a cosy little apartment in which religious literature is to be had—and will be kept open every afternoon from two until four o'clock for the accommodation of those who desire to call. The church is handsomely carpeted with a rich velvet carpet, in which a bright green color predominates, and the seats, which are arranged at angles with the pulpit, give a pretty effect. They are of quartered oak, with carved ends, and nicely finished. A new church organ also makes up a portion of the furnishings. The harmonious blending of the furnishings is augmented by a rich flood of light, which flows in through two great art windows.
