Among the Churches
Norman, Okla. —The beginning of Christian Science in Norman was in 1900, when two students met for the purpose of studying the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, but it was not until 1903 that regular Sunday services were started. These were held in private residences until 1907, when a central point of meeting was recognized as necessary and rooms in the Belknap Building on Main Street were secured. In these rooms the Christian Science Society of Norman, Oklahoma, was organized in 1909, and a reading room established. In June of that year more commodious and convenient rooms in the First National Bank Building were obtained and fitted up. Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings were held there until 1913, when First Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized and duly incorporated under the laws of the state. The first lecture was delivered on January 10, 1910, and lectures have since been given annually.
When it became apparent that a home of its own was a necessity as well as a duty, a building committee was appointed, which reported in favor of purchasing the Cumberland Presbyterian property on West Eufaula Street, centrally located in the residence portion of the city, which report was duly ratified by the membership. Steps were taken to remodel and refurnish the building, making it an attractive and pleasing church edifice; it was first occupied as a place of worship in the fall of 1913. The obligations were met as they became due, and by the generosity of a friend of the cause, the balance of the debt was completely liquidated in July, 1918. On November 17, 1918, the church was formally dedicated.—The Transcript.
