Among the Churches

Current Notes

South Tacoma, Wash .—The Christian Scientists have acquired the four unimproved lost at the southeast corner of South Fifty-fourth and Warner Streets. They will at once begin the erection of a bungalow church building which will include a reading room and an auditorium that will accommodate three hundred people. This is one of the choice sites in this section of the city, and the Christian Scientists are being congratulated in securing such a desirable location for a church home.—The Tacoma News Tribune.

Somerville, Mass.—First Church of Christ, Scientist, held services Sunday morning [June 1] for the first time in its own edifice. The members recently purchased the property of the Broadway Congregational church on Sycamore Street.

The Christian Scientists are justly proud of the fact that they have acquired a property of their own within a little more than seven years since their organization was formed. During the first three years the services were held in Anthoine Hall, then a move was made to the High School Auditorium, the largest available hall in the city. Though ample in accommodation the hall lacked the churchly atmosphere so desirable, therefore the board of directors took the matter up and in five weeks had closed negotiations for the property on Winter Hill. Only that locality and Clarendon Hill were considered seriously by the committe, as being most convenient and accessible to the larger part of the congregation.
