Minneapolis, Minn.—Large audiences attended dedicatory services in Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist, Summit Avenue and Bryant Avenue South, which were held yesterday [Feb. 23]. Ten years ago Second Church of Christ, Scientist, was so overcrowded that members living north and west of Hennepin Avenue were requested to charter a church in that locality, to be known as Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist. The first services of this group were held July 19, 1908, in the National Guard Armory, and the church reading room was opened in the Palace Building. Four months later the lot upon which the church edifice now stands was purchased. Work was begun on the foundation June 15, 1909, and services were held in the completed vestry Thanksgiving morning, November 24, 1909. Work on the superstructure was begun in March, 1913, and the corner stone was laid May 10, 1913.—The Minneapolis Tribune.
