Among the Churches

Current Notes

Winnetka Times

Winnetka, Illinois (First Church).—Morning, afternoon, and evening dedicatory services of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Winnetka were held on Sunday, February 2, 1941. The occasion meant that the edifice was not only complete but fully paid for, since a rule of the Christian Science denomination requires that its church buildings be without debt when they are dedicated.

First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Winnetka was organized in 1924. Services were held in the Masonic Temple on Elm Street for the next nine years.

In the spring of 1933, construction of the present edifice was begun, and, because it was the desire of the membership to incur no indebtedness in the course of the building program, only the Sunday school unit was completed at the time. In October, 1938, the main unit was sufficiently complete to permit the church services to be transferred to the present auditorium. The remaining work in the main unit has been carried on step by step since, the final step having been now completed.
