Among the Churches
Plainfield, New Jersey (First Church).—Dedicatory services of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Ninth Street and Prospect Avenue, were conducted Sunday, December 8, 1935, in the morning and evening.
This branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, founded by Mary Baker Eddy, had its beginning in December of 1904, when three Christian Scientists met to read the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly. In December of 1906 a Christian Science Society was formed, and rooms were obtained in the Babcock Building in West Front Street. In January, 1909, the members incorporated as an organized church and became known as First Church of Christ, Scientist, Plainfield.
In March of 1918 the church purchased the present site and altered the private house which stood upon the property to meet the need of the growing attendance. It was not long. however, before the house ceased to meet the need, and it was decided to build a church edifice. An auditorium was obtained in Meyer Building in Watchung Avenue and the house was razed. On April 20,1925, ground was broken for the new edifice, and on the morning of June 9, 1925, the cornerstone was laid. On October 15, the Sunday school room was ready for occupancy, and was used for church services until the church auditorium was completed.
