Among the Churches

Current Notes

Kansas City, Missouri (Fifth Church).—Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, Kansas City, dedicated its new edifice on Sunday, March 8, 1942. Morning, afternoon, and evening services were held.

A group of Christian Scientists organized first as a Christian Science Society, and later as Fifth Church of Christ, Scientist, Kansas City, authorized branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. They began to hold services in Ford's auditorium, southwest corner of Prospect Avenue and Twenty-seventh Street, in March, 1914. Then in February, 1915, they moved to Prospect Hall, at the southwest corner of Twenty-second Street and Prospect Avenue, where they remained for six years. The Masonic Temple at Twenty-sixth Street and Jackson Avenue, was the next location, which was used until May, 1925. Then temporary quarters were obtained in Submarine Hall, at the southeast corner of Thirty-first Street and Prospect Avenue, where services were held for three months until they moved to their present location.

The Sunday school auditorium, used for church services during the past several years, is located in the basement. Both building and furnishings are paid for. Christian Science churches are not dedicated until they are free of debt.—The Southeast Leader.
