Among the Churches

Current Notes

Manistee, Mich. —To enable its members to have a meeting place of their own, the Christian Science Society recently purchased the property at 111 Maple Street. The home has been remodeled, providing a small auditorium for church services in conjunction with a pleasant reading room.

Several years ago, through a case of healing, a few people in Parkdale became interested in Christian Science and began reading the Christian Science Lesson-Sermons at one of the homes there. Later, to accommodate friends in the city, regular Sunday services were held at a private home on Washington Street. In 1909, at the suggestion of a visiting Scientist that strangers would feel more free to come if services were held in a public place, rooms were rented and furnished at 67 Maple Street. The same year those who were attending regularly adopted a constitution and by-laws. In the year 1911, through the courtesy of the board of directors of the Unitarian Church, the Christian Science Society was given the privilege of holding services in their beautiful church edifice on Fifth Street. Although deeply appreciating these comfortable quarters which it enjoyed for several years, the society looked forward to the time when it would have a church home of its own, more centrally located, where a reading room could be maintained. This aspiration has been attained.—The News-Advocate.
