Among the Churches

Current Notes

Milwaukee, Wis .—Services were held Sunday [March 4] for the dedication of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, Highland Boulevard and Twenty-seventh Street. This church is the outgrowth or overflow of First Church of Christ, Scientist. It was organized in November, 1909, with two hundred charter members, and services were held in Plankinton Hall for the first four and a half years. A building fund for the erection of a church home was established, and the beautiful lot now occupied by the church edifice was purchased in January, 1912, at a cost of fifteen thousand seven hundred dollars. Ground was broken and building operations were commenced in July, 1913. The corner-stone was laid in November with modest ceremonies, and the edifice was completed and the first services were held June 7, 1914. The seating capacity is fourteen hundred, and the total cost of the completed edifice, including lot, was one hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars.—Milwaukee Leader.

DAWSON, YUKON TERRITORY, CANADA.—The property at the northwest corner of Seventh Avenue and Queen Street, formerly known as the Hershberg warehouse and grounds, consisting of a warm storage house 40 by 80 feet, with five lots of ground, has been purchased by the Christian Scientists. Extensive repairs have been made to make the building comfortable for occupancy at once. Only half of it will be finished now, and this will be used for church services, Sunday school, and reading-room. The Dawson Christian Science Society was organized about four years ago, and in that time has grown to the need of a church.—Dawson News.
