Among the Churches

The semi-annual communion and reception of members was celebrated on Sunday (June 30) by First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Christian Science Hall. The beautiful hall was crowded with the local congregation and visitors from abroad. Among those present were Mrs. Sara Pike Conger, wife of the minister to China; Mr. Edward P. Bates, president of the Mother Church in Boston, and Mrs. Bates; also Eugene H. Greene and a company of friends, from Providence, R. I. The pulpit was beautifully decorated with red and white roses, and these, together with a large quantity of mountain laurel, made the place a bower of floral decorations.

The services were conducted by First Reader, Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson, and the Second Reader, Miss Mary E. Tomlinson. The solos, which were beautifully rendered by Miss Villa Whitney White, were, "Come, Thou," words by Mary Baker G. Eddy, set to music by Laffen, and a German hymn of the sixteenth century, "O, Saviour mine." The hymns by the congregation, which were sung with much feeling, were, Bonar's "Here, O my Lord, I'd see Thee face to face," and "Saw ye my Saviour?" by Mary Baker G. Eddy. The Scripture reading was taken from the fourteenth chapter of First Corinthians, and the Responsive reading from the fourteenth chapter of Mark.
