Fremont, Ohio.—Sunday morning [Feb. 10] First Church of Christ, Scientist, corner of Park Avenue and Ewing Street, was dedicated. Christian Science was first introduced into Fremont about twenty years ago, and on October 4, 1900, nine persons met and organized, services being held at the home of one of the members until March 3, 1901, when a room on Croghan Street was rented. On July 17 of the same year Wednesday evening meetings were started. On March 1, 1904, more commodious and desirable rooms were rented on the first floor of a building on State Street. Another change was made May 1, 1911, when the church began to hold services in Colonial Hall. During these years the building fund had been steadily increasing, and after prayerful consideration the members of the church approved the purchase of a residence property, the present abode of the church. It was opened for the first service on January 2, 1916, and was cleared from all indebtedness on September 22 of the same year. The purchasing and remodeling of the building was an added demonstration of the spiritual understanding of substance and the overcoming of material limitation.—Fremont News.
