Among the Churches
Springfield, Mass. —Practically simultaneously with the annual meeting last night [Jan. 7] of First Church of Christ, Scientist, the superstructure of the beautiful and imposing new building at State and Orleans Streets has been completed. The basement was finished in 1916 and is designed to be used as a Sunday school room. It has a seating capacity of eight hundred and since completion has been used for church services. The auditorium will have a seating capacity of twelve hundred, without balconies.
The building, up to its present point, represents an outlay of about one hundred and thirty thousand dollars. The work is being paid for as completed, as the church has agreed with itself that "there shall be no standing debt and no mortgage upon God's house." The cost of the basement was about forty-seven thousand dollars. Any figure on the cost of the completed edifice can at this time be nothing better than an estimate, but it doubtless will be somewhere between one hundred and seventy-five thousand and two hundred thousand dollars.—The Springfield Union.
Owensboro, Ky.—The dedication of First Church of Christ, Scientist, took place at the morning service to-day [Dec. 22], the last of a small floating debt having been liquidated. This church has been in its new quarters at 602 Daviess Street since the last of December, 1916. The residence of W. F. Reinhardt was bought and remodeled into a beautiful church with a seating capacity of one hundred.
