First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Ventura, Cal., has recently purchased and entirely paid for a building lot in a very central and desirable part of the city. A building fund was started some time ago, before the little band of workers here had been organized into a church; but the major portion of the amount required to pay for the lot was raised by voluntary offerings to the building fund on the first Sunday in each of the months of October, November, and December, 1910, without the individual solicitation of a single cent. Our beloved Leader's words: "Progress is the law of God" (Science and Health, p. 233), are being demonstrated daily by this branch of the Mother Vine.



The new church erected by the Christian Scientists of Medford will be used for the first time Sunday morning [Jan. 15]. The church, of bungalow architecture, stands on North Oakdale, and is an attractive building. The church building is the first erected by Scientists in the valley. The auditorium is furnished with two hundred mahogany opera chairs.—Medford Sun.
