Opening and Dedication of Churches

The opening and dedication of a Christian Science Church is a most important event. It places the work on a firmer foundation and at the same time it brings renewed hope and courage to the faithful workers who have labored and sacrificed for so noble a purpose. They have heard the "well done," and their cup of joy is full to overflowing. Not only those who helped directly or indirectly in the building of a particular church have cause for rejoicing, but all Christian Scientists, wherever they may be, in this or foreign lands, rejoice with their brethren in Christ who are permitted to worship under their own vine and figtree.

Soon after the organization of a Church of Christ, Scientist, the desire and purpose of the members to have a suitable house of worship is manifest in the starting of a Building Fund. By means of the voluntary contributions of loving friends and faithful adherents to the teachings of Christian Science, this fund grows until it is sufficient to provide a suitable church home.
