Grinnell Herald-Register

Grinnell, Iowa (Society).—Christian Science Society dedicated its church building, 611 Sixth Avenue, on Sunday, May 22, 1938. Two services were held, in the morning and in the afternoon.

This society was organized in February, 1911, by a small group of Scientists who had been meeting informally at 920 Park Street for about three years previous to that time. They soon obtained the east rooms of Stewart Libraty. Services were held in these rooms for twelve years. In 1923 an upstairs room at 923 Broad Street was rented, and a year later the society moved again, to 915 Broad Street, remaining there until July, 1932.

In June, 1932, the society was incorported under the laws of the state of Iowa. Since the school board wished to enlarge the playground for Parker School at that time, the society purchased the building, moved it to the present Iocation, and remodeled it to suit the needs of the society.

Christian Science Society of Grinnell is a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and in conformity with the requirement of all Christian Science churches, has dedicated its property freet from debt.—Grinnell Herald-Register.
