Among the Churches
Peoria, Ill.—The first step toward the building up of another Christian Science church was taken Friday night [Feb. 27], when Second Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized. For a long time it had been evident that a second church would have to be built.
The plan of the work is, like all the operations of a Christian Science congregation, very simple and very quietly carried out. The method of growth in the Christian Science church is by budding, or swarming, it might better be called. When the congregation has grown to an unwieldy size, part of the body forms a separate congregation. This is done without friction. The decision of the congregation as to what section of the city should be left to the new organization, settles the whole matter. After that it is only necessary to find out who is in that district, and issue letters to them, so that they can proceed to organize themselves into the new church society. There is no discord. Nobody refuses to leave his old church home. He knows that the new one will be a Christian Science church, and that is enough. Nobody seems to be tied to the building.
In this case the territory of the new church was destined to be the West Bluff, and letters were issued to each member residing in that locality. These persons met on Friday night and organized Second Church of Christ, Scientist.
