Among the Churches

Current Notes


Coloma, Michigan (Society). —Dedication services for the new church building erected by Christian Science Society, Coloma, were held on Sunday, September 28, 1941, in the morning and the afternoon.

The first meeting for organization of a Christian Science Society in Coloma was held in the Park Hotel on September 6, 1914. Officers were elected and regular services were instituted. A charter from the state was granted on November 20, 1919. In December, 1919, a residence building and lot were purchased, and the debt on this property was canceled in April, 1925. Services were conducted in this building until July, 1931, at which date the structure was razed, so that a new one might be erected. Services were later held in the Odd Fellows Hall and in the basement of the State Bank of Coloma. On April 18, 1941, ground was broken for the erection of the present church edifice, and the cornerstone was laid on May 12, 1941. The first service was held in the new church on July 6, 1941. Christian Science churches are not dedicated until they are free from debt.—Courier.
