Among the Churches

Current Notes


Bothell, Wash. (Society).—In April, 1916, a number of students of Christian Science formed the nucleus of a society at this place by meeting at a private residence each Sunday morning and reading the Lesson-Sermons. In June, five of those students, all of whom were members of The Mother Church in Boston, met and drew up by-laws and regulations and formed a permanent organization. The meeting place was then changed to a hall. The congregations were small, but composed of earnest seekers for the truth. By the month of November a Sunday school was organized, and this little group of students was privileged to be recognized as an authorized Christian Science Society, a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts; and, as such, gave its first lecture in May of the year following. Two years later it purchased a residence property and remodeled it into a commodious auditorium with Sunday school rooms and a Reading Room. Grateful acknowledgment is made by the members of this society to all those who gave so generously of their means, energies, and prayers in helping them to establish this organization, which has been the means of doing so much good. This society has come in for its full share in opportunities to contribute liberally to War Relief, Camp Welfare, and all other activities. In March it gives its fifth lecture since its organization. The members of this society have no other desire than to "be steadfast in Christ, always abounding in love and good works" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 155).
