Among the Churches

Current Notes

BENTON HARBOR, MICH.—First Church of Christ, Scientist, was dedicated Sunday [Sept. 7].

The local Christian Science church was started in 1903, when a small band of devoted followers began to hold meetings in homes of the members in St. Joseph. Desiring a hall in which to hold regular services, they secured Minora Hall on Pipestone Street. After services had been held there for several months, on November 2, 1904, a Christian Science Society was organized. At the end of four years the society moved into Robinson Hall, which was more centrally located and larger. In 1908 the organization was dissolved and under the laws of Michigan was incorporated as a church. After two years in Robinson Hall, another move was made into the Carnegie Public Library, where services were held in the auditorium for four years, a period of great prosperity and increasing numbers in attendance following. The Universalist Church on Pleasant Street was purchased in 1913. This property has since been much improved, and through the money raised among Christian Scientists has this year been entirely freed of debt.—The News-Palladium.

LONGMONT, COLO.—The Longmont Christian Science church will hold dedicatory services at the church edifice to-day [Aug. 24], when many Scientists of Denver interested in the welfare of the church will attend. The building was completed in 1913 at a cost of five thousand dollars. It is of concrete, and has a seating capacity of 125.
