Among the Churches

Current Notes

Red Wing Daily Republican

Red Wing, Minnesota (First Church).—The new home of First Church of Christ, Scientist, at the corner of Bush and Seventh Streets, was formally dedicated at services Sunday morning, December 8, 1935, at 10.45 o'clock. The edifice, extensively remodeled and redecorated, was formerly the St. Peter's Lutheran Church, and was acquired several months ago by First Church of Christ, Scientist.

In remodeling the building, the French provincial style of architecture has been followed. The steeple was removed and the brick exterior was painted ivory with stone gray trim. A new entrance to the building consists of concrete steps leading up from both sides to the new French doors. The two side entrances have black wrought-iron railings. The interior of the church has been extensively remodeled. A partition has been erected under the balcony, forming two rooms—a cloak room and a Reading Room. The interior of the church is finished in ivory, including the pipe organ. Tiled floors were laid in the foyer and two sets of French doors installed. The stained glass windows have been replaced with amber cathedral glass. Brocaded gold drapes beautify the arches on each side of the pipe organ.
