Among the Churches

Current Notes

Saranac Lake, New York (Society).—Completion of alterations has greatly improved the Christian Science property at Church and River Streets. Steady growth of the organization necessitated a larger auditorium. A place has also been provided for the Sunday school. The seating capacity of the principal meeting room has been increased to one hundred and twenty-five by taking out partitions. The second floor will be used for the Sunday school and for a Reading Room. A vestibule has been added to the building.

The Hague, Holland (First Church).—The dedication of the church of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Andries Bickerweg I, the Hague, has now taken place. The building, which has become one of the "sights" of The Hague for tourists, is beautifully situated on the border of the small lake in Groot Hertoginnelaan, in face of the Banstraat; and the charms of the situation have been put to advantage by its architect. The light comes through white and green glassstones built into the wall, which take the place of windows. In the midst of the ceiling is a cut star of white glass, framed in lilac glass. In the vestibule is a symbolic picture, made of tiles, representing "the holy city," coming down from heaven. The church numbers seven hundred and twenty-one seats, all directed toward the Readers' platform.
