AMONG THE CHURCHES

For some time past the overcrowded condition at the Sunday services, and especially the Wednesday evening meetings, of First Church of Christ, Scientist, in San Francisco, has been quite noticeable, and was freely commented upon by regular attendants and the public at large. To relieve the situation and meet a very evident need for another Church of Christ, Scientist, in San Francisco, a special meeting of members of First Church was called on Feb. 23 last, at which a resolution was adopted recognizing the urgent need and recommending the immediate organization of Fourth Church, with the further recommendation that it ultimately locate its meeting-place in the Richmond district of San Francisco.

A permanent organization was effected March 19, 1912, by the adoption of by-laws and the election of a board of directors and officers. As no suitable meeting-place was available at present in the Richmond district, it was voted to rent Elks hall at 540 Powell street temporarily, until arrangements could be made. The first Sunday service of Fourth Church was held March 31, and was most harmonious. The hall was filled to overflowing, the vestibule and stairs were crowded with people unable to get seats inside, and between fifty and one hundred willingly stood throughout the service.
