Among the Churches
Yonkers, N. Y. —Probably no church organization in Yonkers has had such a remarkable growth in so short a time as First Church of Christ, Scientist, which started with barely thirty members in December, 1904, in a small photographic studio at 502 South Broadway. Originally the church was at Hastings-on-the-Hudson, but was moved to Yonkers, and the Hastings and Yonkers Scientists combined. Before the congregation was started here, Yonkers Christian Scientists were accustomed to travel as far as New York to attend services. For more than a year the Yonkers Scientists held their meetings in a hall at 498 South Broadway. By October, 1905, the membership had increased greatly. Lectures on Christian Science were given at various auditoriums and halls in the city, and as a result many became interested. Owing to the increase in membership, it became apparent that the meeting place on South Broadway was too small, so larger quarters were secured in the Guinzburg Building on North Broadway, where meetings were held regularly.
First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Yonkers, was incorporated March 1, 1906. In 1908 the church bought five lots in one of the residential sections of the city, with the intention of building a church structure on the ground. A movement was afoot to raise funds with which to erect the building, when it was finally decided to purchase the chapel of St. John's Episcopal church parish, which stood at the corner of North Broadway and Greenvale avenue. The chapel was dedicated with fitting ceremonies by the Christian Scientists on Thanksgiving day, Nov. 30, 1911.
