Among the Churches
Ames, Iowa (First Church).— First Church of Christ, Scientist, Ames, dedicated its edifice at Ninth Street and Kellogg Avenue on Sunday, July 27, 1941. The building has been occupied by the church since September, 1938, but was not dedicated until Sunday, in accordance with a provision that Christian Science churches can be dedicated only when all indebtedness has been canceled.
The church in Ames was organized as a society in 1907; and in 1916 it was made a branch church of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. The lot on which the edifice stands was purchased in 1929, at which time the church was incorporated.
The first public meeting place was in the Odd Fellows Hall, but after 1912 services were held in the city library auditorium until the edifice was completed. The Reading Room, at first opened in a private home, was afterward located in the Ames National Bank (now Ames Trust and Savings) building from 1913 until 1933, and later in the Ames Building and Loan building until it was moved to its present location in the church edifice.—The Ames Daily Tribune.
