Another new church is to be formed, to be known as Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist, Minneapolis, Minn. The new church will consist of those members of Second Church who live north and west of Hennepin Avenue, and who, at the request of the directors of Second Church, have withdrawn for the purpose of organizing the new church. This movement has been necessitated by the continued overcrowded condition of Second Church. Notwithstanding the fact that a new church was sent out four months ago, taking a large portion of the membership of Second Church to form Fifth Church on the East Side, the attendance has continued in such large numbers as to make necessary this further movement.

Minneapolis Tribune.

From correspondence we learn that the new church is splendidly located in the most beautiful hall in the city, just completed, with a seating capacity of one thousand, and overlooking one of the city's parkways. The first service was beautiful and inspiring, with an attendance of over four hundred. A telegram of joy and gratitude was sent to Mrs. Eddy, and a letter of congratulation was read from Fifht Church. The First Reader of Second Church being a resident of the new district, resigned his position to go with the new organization, and was immediately elected to complete his term as First Reader in the new church. Throughout the organization meeting there were constant expressions of gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for the many blessings that had come to all through Christian Science and her inspiring and loving leadership.—Editor.
