Among the Churches

Current Notes

Eureka Springs, Ark.—The opening service in the new Christian Science church, on Mountain street, was held last Sunday morning [April 25] at eleven o'clock. The Christian Scientists have had an organization here for a good many years. More than a quarter of a century ago, the study of Christian Science was introduced into Eureka Springs. Since that time, the movement has grown, and some ten years ago the lots on Mountain street, on which this beautiful church now stands, were purchased. Later, the stone in the basement walls was purchased, at the time excavation was made for the new Carnegie Library, but not until June 1, 1914, was the contract let for the building, and a month later, ground was broken on the construction work. When the church is entirely paid for, dedicatory services will be held.—Eureka Springs Times-Echo.

St. Louis, Mo.—The literature distribution office of First Church of Christ, Scientist, is closed, as it was decided at a church-membership meeting to work jointly with the other churches. For the year 1914, the following literature was mailed direct from this office: 23,642 Monitors, 12,113 Sentinels, 440 Journals, 6,107 pamphlets, 2,511 miscellaneous matter, making a total of 44,813. The literature distributed in the church after lectures, and in other ways than mailing, totaled 13,266. The total number of books donated to libraries was 115. Yearly subscriptions for the Monitor, the Sentinel, the Herold, and the Journal totaled 23.
