Among the Churches

Current Notes

Ludington, Mich .—One of the most attractive churches in this city is the newly remodeled and redecorated edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, which was opened the last week of August after improvements had been made costing four thousand dollars. The society was organized in 1899 as a branch of The Mother Church in Boston, with a membership of twenty-four, only three of whom are still residents of Ludington. The church property was purchased for nine hundred dollars. The original building has now been improved by the addition of the porch and foyer in front and a Sunday school room at the rear. The funds for the alterations were raised by voluntary subscriptions, and they have all been paid for.—Grand Rapids Herald.

Fremont, Ohio.—The homestead on the corner of Park Avenue and Ewing Street is to be the permanent home of First Church of Christ, Scientist, in the near future. The trustees of the church have purchased the residence for $5,650. Members of the congregation plan to occupy the present residence as their meeting-place and reading-rooms as soon as the dwelling, a splendid frame structure, can be vacated by the present occupants. Later it is planned to erect on the site a Christian Science Church. The property is most desirably located for church purposes, having a frontage of 82 feet on Park Avenue with a depth of 132 feet on Ewing Street.—The Fremont News.

Morrison, Ill.—About three years ago First Church of Christ, Scientist, bought and paid for a building lot at the corner of Genesee and Cherry Streets, the purchase price being eight hundred and fifty dollars. Since then Genesee Street has been paved, and this has brought the cost up to about eleven hundred dollars. In July of this year the contract was let for a church edifice, and the foundation is now completed. The building is to cost, without furniture, six thousand dollars. We expect to be located in it by the first of next year.—Correspondence.
