Among the Churches

Current Notes

Langley, Washington (Society).—At beautifully simple and solemnly impressive services, the new building recently completed by Christian Science Society, Langley, was dedicated on Sunday, October 5, 1941. The services marked the culmination of plans made some twenty years ago, when the local society was first organized, and it was hoped some day to have a church of its own in which to worship.

Christian Science Society, Langley, had its beginning in 1921, when a few students of Christian Science gathered together to read the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly. The meetings and the interest were brought about by the healing through Science of one of those students. For three years these meetings were held in a private home.

By 1924 the meetings were being held at the Langley Library, and in July of that year the first business meeting was held, at which it was decided to organize. That same month the lot where the new edifice now stands was purchased, and for nearly the entire time since then the collections on the first Sunday of each month have been placed in a building fund. In June, 1940, at the regular semiannual meeting, it was decided to build, and after that meeting steps were taken which resulted in the new house of worship.
