Among the Churches
Cedar Rapids, Iowa.—Sunday, April 4, was marked by the opening of the beautiful new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, on Second avenue, every seat being occupied when the hour for the services arrived. Not all of the pews had been received, but those in place gave a seating capacity of five hundred, while additional chairs were brought from the Sunday school room. When all pews are placed, the seating capacity will reach seven hundred. The services were in keeping with the Christian Science program which obtains all over the country. The formal dedication, to mark the payment of all debt on the new building, will take place in the near future.—The Cedar Rapids Gazette.
Charleston, W. Va.—The trustees of First Church of Christ, Scientist, have acquired the lot at the corner of Bradford and Lee streets, and will soon receive plans for a modern edifice. The lot is considered to be one of the most desirable in the city. It has a frontage of 92 feet on Bradford street and 100 feet on Lee street. The purchase price was about ten thousand dollars. For a number of years the Christian Scientists have held their services in a business building on Quarrier street.—The Charleston Mail.
San Francisco, Cal.—Third Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized Dec. 18, 1908, with sixty-seven charter members, the majority of whom withdrew from First Church for that purpose. Services were held on Dec. 27, 1908, in Young Men's Hebrew Association Hall on page street, near Stanyan street; in the latter part of 1909, however, these quarters were found inadequate, so the hall on Shrader street, near Haight street, was built for them, and services are still held there. This hall, which seats six hundred and fifty, is now filled by the congregation.
