Among the Churches

Current Notes

Chicago, Ill. (Eleventh Church).—The growth of the Christian Science movement in the United States has resulted in recent years in numerous church edifices forming one of the most notable groups of houses of worship in the world. Among the structures few excel, in simple beauty and harmonious design, the recently completed Eleventh Church in Chicago. This church, occupying a prominent corner on Logan Boulevard, covers an area of ninety square feet. It is fifty feet high to the top of the cornice, exquisite in proportion, dignified yet dominating in mass, and pure Greek in detail.—The Architectural Record, New York City.

Kent, Ohio (First Church).—The Christian Science organization began its work with informal gatherings held at the homes of a few interested people. In about a year's time the interest had grown to such an extent that a society was organized and a larger meeting place was found. This was in the summer of 1911. At the close of the following summer a greater seating capacity was needed and a larger room was again secured. In the fall of 1917 steps were taken toward a more permanent organization and the church charter was received from Columbus in November. The present church property was purchased in the fall of 1919, and the first service was held in June, 1920.—Kent Tribune.
