Among the Churches

Current Notes

Waterloo Courier

Waterloo, Iowa (First Church).—Some time this spring, members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, will occupy and dedicate a fine new church home, the completed structure anticipated by the building of the basement section six years ago. Since 1922 the congregation has held services and Sunday school in the high basement section, which had been finished in the interior as an auditorium. During the interim the society has grown, funds have accumulated, and plans matured for completion of the church with a beautiful superstructure. Fruition of the hopes and plans are now nearing realization in the fine structure erected on Second Street West, at the corner of Wellington Street. The edifice is forty-two feet by one hundred and eighteen feet, of brick with stone trimming. The roof is of steel and wood construction, with a covering of green asbestos shingles. The exterior of the building has been completed, and workmen are now busy on the interior. The seating capacity will be approximately five hundred. When the church is completed, the high basement will be used exclusively for the Sunday school.—Waterloo Courier.
