Among the Churches

Current Notes

Queens Village, Long Island, New York (First Church).—First Church of Christ, Scientist, Queens Village, conducted services in its new edifice for the first time Sunday, December 30. A dozen people in February, 1922, organized this church, and on Sunday, March 5, of that year held their first service. The meetings prospered and gave such promise that, by November 15, the group was recognized by The Christian Science Board of Directors in Boston as Christian Science Society of Queens Village.

Due to growth in attendance, the society became First Church of Christ, Scientist, Queens Village, March 19, 1925. It was not until July, 1934, however, that actual work of construction was begun, the cornerstone being laid August 10, last.

The church is executed in the New England colonial style of architecture—red brick with white limestone trimmings and white paneled doors. The auditorium has a seating capacity of four hundred and seventeen. The building is in the middle of the lot, with a garden plot around it. Sunlight through the pastel windows gives a soft, mellow light to the interior. In the spring the landscaping will proceed. The Reading Room is in a wing of the building, and the Sunday school will be downstairs.—Long Island Daily Press.
