AMONG THE CHURCHES
A most important step in the Christian Science movement in Portland will be observed today [June 11], when the imposing new church edifice, at Nineteenth and Everett streets, will be opened for service. It has been two and a half years since the members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, decided to erect a church structure of such pretentious plans. The building lot, covering half a block of ground, was acquired at a cost of twenty-three thousand dollars. An active campaign for funds was started, and the church soon found that it would have enough to erect the style of building that was desired. The edifice itself cost over ninety thousand dollars. While the church has been built mainly through the efforts of its own congregation, the members have appreciated greatly the helpfulness and interest shown by Second Church members, who have contributed frequently to the cause and last Thanksgiving gave their entire building fund of two thousand dollars toward the erection of the church.
In point of artistic beauty, the edifice is believed to equal that of any other church building in the city. In its style of architecture it follows the general trend of Christian Science churches, which is toward severe simplicity of classical lines. The exterior walls were constructed of Wilkeson sandstone from a quarry in Washington. The spacious auditorium with mahogany pews is reached by six wide stairways from the first floor, entrances to which are at both ends and on Everett street. The auditorium has a seating capacity for thirteen hundred people. The interior finishings are simple but beautiful.—Oregonian.
