AMONG THE CHURCHES
The history of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city is asserted by its members to be more remarkable in point of rapid growth than that of any church in this city. It was organized Aug. 1, 1903, with ten members, and held its meetings in the hall of Shortridge High School. In a short time the membership numbered fifty, the congregation about two hundred and fifty. In one year after the beginning it was felt that larger and more permanent quarters should be obtained. A lot was bought at Meridian and Walnut Streets, and within ten weeks a brick and steel building was erected thereon which was first occupied on New Year's day, 1905. The cost of the church and lot was twenty-six thousand dollars, all paid for. Dec. 1, 1907, the church building was given up, larger quarters being demanded, and Caleb Mills Hall is now used for all services. Since moving into these new quarters the audiences have averaged one thousand persons, sometimes exceeding twelve hundred. The congregation will continue there until a building site can be found upon which to erect a permanent church home. Meanwhile the property at Walnut and Meridian Streets will be placed on sale and be disposed of at as early a date as possible.
Of the church membership thirty-seven per cent is made up of men, and the percentage of men in the audiences attending the services is as great or greater. There is a flourishing Sunday School attached to the church, with one hundred and forty pupils enrolled and twenty teachers and officers, an increase of sixty-three over January, 1907.—Indianapolis News.
