AMONG THE CHURCHES
The dedication of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Washington, Iowa, was held May 19. Christian Science was first introduced into Washington about twenty-six years ago. Two or three years later services were started, and held in private homes until July, 1897, when First Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized by seven students. Seven other Christian Scientists joined the church soon after its organization, making a total of fourteen members, eleven of whom were members of The Mother Church in Boston, Mass. A public place was selected in which to hold services, and a Sunday school was organized. The weekly testimonial meeting on Friday evenings was also started at this time, and the first lecture on Christian Science was given in Graham opera house June 22, 1899. In July, 1899, the lot upon which the church stands was presented to the church as a tribute of love from one of the members. In May, 1900, the reading-room work was begun and continued for a while, then discontinued until a few years later, when it was taken up as a permanent part of the church work. In September of 1903 the corner-stone of the church building was laid, and the following spring, when the building was approaching completion, services were held in it.
While the work of completing the payments on the church has been slow, the sacrifices made to do so have brought us all blessings, and now we are glad to announce that not one dollar of indebtedness remains.—Correspondence.
