Among the Churches
New Rochelle, New York (First Church).—Without formal ceremony of any kind whatsoever, the first services in the new temple erected by First Church of Christ, Scientist, of New Rochelle, have just been held. The regular Sunday morning worship was not varied in any respect from that held every week, and no public comment was made by those conducting the readings and prayer.
The new building thrown open yesterday for the first time to the Christian Scientist congregation is a superstructure reared over the first unit erected seven years ago. This first unit, now constituting the basement floor, will be used henceforth for Sunday school rooms.
First Church of Christ, Scientist, as it now stands on Locust Avenue, near Main Street, is an imposing and beautiful religious edifice. Built of tan face brick and modeled after the Ionic temples of old, the front is dignified by the tall Ionic pillars that form a semicircle, repeated in the several steps by which entrance is gained to the portico within the pillars. It presents a different aspect within than any other religious edifice of this city. It is dazzlingly light with its white ceiling and walls, and the windows of an opaque glass shot with pale yellow tend to heighten the atmosphere of brightness that pervades. The Flemish pews of dark oak have a seating capacity of three hundred and seventy-five. The effect of the whole building is that of simplicity and austerity, perfected with a nicety of detail, however, that brings First Church of Christ, Scientist, into the ranks of the most beautiful religious edifices of this city.—The Standard-Star.
