Among the Churches

Current Notes

Albert Lea, Minn .—On Sunday, September 28, the members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, dedicated their church, on the corner of Clark Street and Adams Avenue. The building, with furnishings and lot, cost approximately fourteen thousand dollars. It is entirely free from debt, the last payments having been made from a substantial gift by the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy, from a sum set aside by her for the purpose of helping branch churches.

About twenty-five years ago a class in Christian Science was taught in Albert Lea, after which Sunday services were held at the homes of students until the following year, when the Christian Science Dispensary Association was organized in the Masonic banquet room in the Hewitt Building, corner of Broadway and William Street. Two years later the church was incorporated with thirteen charter members. On October 24, 1900, this church was reorganized under a state charter. In 1914 the lot on which this church now stands was purchased and building operations were begun. The corner stone was laid Thursday morning, June 10, 1915. The structure was completed in December of the same year, and the first service was held in it Sunday morning, December 12, since which time Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings have been held regularly. When the church was organized a Christian Science Sunday school was also established.—
