Among the Churches

Current Notes

Long Beach, Cal.—The magnificent temple of worship erected by First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Long Beach, now stands complete. The members of the church are happy in the fruition of their hopes and plans in the ownership of one of the finest edifices in southern California. The classic structure speaks eloquently in itself of the progress made since the first Christian Science Association was formed at Long Beach in a little hall at Third street and Cedar avenue. The edifice, located on the east side of Elm avenue, between Fourth and Fifth streets, stands upon a site valued at more than ten thousand dollars, and the structure itself, including the pipe-organ and furnishings, represents an additional expenditure of eighty-five thousand dollars. The seating capacity of the Sunday school department is one thousand, while the auditorium seats twelve hundred.

Chicago, Ill.—At a meeting held for the purpose last night [March 10], a new Christian Science church was organized, which will be known as Thirteenth Church of Christ, Scientist, of Chicago. By-laws were adopted and officers elected. Services will be held in the near future at some point on "The Ridge," between Beverly hills and Blue island. The new organization, which consists of members who withdrew from Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, was made necessary because of the overcrowded condition at the services of that church for some time past.—Chicago Tribune.
