Among the Churches

Current Notes

Peoria, Ill. —Work on the new Christian Science church on the West Bluff will begin soon. This was announced last night [March 3] at a meeting of First Church. A gift of $6,485 was also announced. This money was contributed within the week to the building fund of the new church by the members of First Church, and this, with gifts already made, brings the church's contribution up to more than ten thousand dollars. The money will all be in hand in time for the beginning of the work, which will be pushed, as the West Bluff worshipers are anxious to be in their own house of worship. They hold services at present in the auditorium of the Washington school. The plans for the new church, which is to be built on Barker avenue, call for a building to cost thirty-five thousand dollars.—Peoria Journal.

Fargo, N. Dak.—The new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, was formally opened upon the occasion of a lecture delivered by George Shaw Cook on Feb. 18 last. It is on a corner lot, conveniently located near the business section of the city, and with easy street-car accomodations. The seating capacity is four hundred. The cost of the lot was four thousand dollars, and of the building, twenty-four thousand dollars.—Correspondence.
