Among the Churches

Current Notes

Snohomish, Wash.—Several years ago a little band of seekers of Truth met together at their several homes to study "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, in connection with the Bible. This led to the renting of a room where the study of divine Science could be open to all. For a time an up-stairs room of the Otten Block was occupied, but it was soon found necessary to seek another location, and arrangements were made to use the lodge room of the Odd Fellows Hall for Sunday services, while the testimony meetings were held in one of the private homes until the church was built. First Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized in April, 1898, and a charter was granted in April, 1899. In 1900 a lot was purchased, and the cornerstone was laid Sept. 14, 1903. Easter Sunday, April 12, 1914, dedication services were held.—Correspondence.

Ohio.—First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Canton, First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Massillon, and the Christian Science Society of Alliance, joined in maintaining a booth at the Stark County fair, held in Canton Sept. 22-26. There were distributed 1,028 Sentinel, 141 Journals, 2,112 Monitors, and 300 pamphlets, a total of 3,581 pieces, yet these were not enough to supply the demand.—Correspondence.

Dover, N. H.—When First Church of Christ, Scientist, was invited to participate in the celebration of "old home week" in Dover, Aug. 25–27, 1914, this was looked upon as an opportunity to serve the public and bring before them the subject of clean journalism.
