Among the Churches

Current Notes

Oak Park, Ill. — At half-past six in the morning on Tuesday, June 30, there gathered a little group on the northeast corner of Oak Park avenue and Ontario street, to attend the ceremony of the laying of the corner-stone of Second Church. The church building was started June 1. The auditorium will seat a congregation of eleven hundred people without the obstruction of a single pillar in the upper auditorium. The Sunday school below will accommodate four hundred children.

Oak Leaves.

Hempsted, N. Y. — Four years ago a number interested in Christian Science held their first service in this village. A little later, a reading-room was opened; then followed the organization as a society, the opening of a Sunday school, the holding of Wednesday evening services, and now they are incorporated as First Church of Christ, Scientist.
