Among the Churches

Current Notes

Marysville, California (First Church).—The corner stone of the new Christian Science edifice at the corner of Seventh and E Streets was laid on Saturday morning. The service, which was simple but impressive, was conducted by the First and Second Readers. The handsome copper box which contained the Bible and Science and Health and all the other published writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, was placed in the stone by the board of directors. The building is rapidly taking form and gives promise of architectural beauty.


St. John, New Brunswick, Canada (First Church).—Property on the southwest corner of Queen and Germain Streets has been purchased by First Church of Christ, Scientist, with the expectation of erecting a place of worship thereon. When erected, the Christian Scientists of St. John, a growing community of people, will have their own edifice for the first time since the introduction of their form of worship into St. John twenty-three years ago. The lots purchased aggregate forty feet by one hundred feet. The church to be erected will have its frontage on Germain Street, one of the city's finest residential localities. The property was chosen, not alone for its surroundings, but for its sunny location. Plans for the proposed new structure have not been completed, but it is intended that the auditorium will be capable of seating three hundred and fifty people, and will have a Sunday school room, Reading Room, church business quarters, and rooms for committee work.—Evening Times-Globe.
