Among the Churches

Current Notes

Richmond Hill, N. Y.—Five years ago a little band of earnest Christian Scientists began to meet informally in the home of one of their members. After nine months they organized the Christian Science Society of Richmond Hill, meeting in their room in Arcanum Hall. Some months ago the incorporation of the church was deemed necessary on account of the steady growth in membership and attendance. As they had sought in vain for a larger meeting room in Richmond Hill, it seemed expedient to erect a small church to meet the present need. On April 4, at sunrise, the cornerstone of the new edifice was laid at Greenwood and Lexington avenues in the presence of the officers and charter members of the church. The auditorium will have a seating capacity of two hundred.—The Richmond Hill Record.

Reading, Mass.—Years of planning, loving endeavor, and generous giving came to a culmination last Sunday [April 5] in the dedication of the new, dignified, and beautiful edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, situated at the corner of Lowell and Sanborn streets. Services were held at eleven, three, and seven o'clock. In the morning and afternoon the full capacity, six hundred in all, including the Sunday school room, which opens into the main auditorium by two sets of triple sliding doors, was completely taken up and chairs were placed in the foyer. In the evening the auditorium, floor and gallery, was filled.
