Port Chester Daily Item.

Greenwich, Connecticut (First Church).—The edifice on Park Place, which houses First Church of Christ, Scientist, Greenwich, was formally dedicated at morning, afternoon, and evening services on January 25, 1942.

The building was completed in 1934 and the first service held there on August 1 of that year, but dedication was put off until the time when the building would be completely free of indebtedness.

Christian Science Society of Greenwich, an authorized branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, held its first service on Sunday, February 26, 1911. In May, 1915, the first Christian Science lecture in Greenwich was given, and at the semiannual meeting in November, 1915, a church building fund was started. At a special meeting on July 7, 1918, it was voted to change from a society to First Church of Christ, Scientist, Greenwich. In December, 1923, the members voted to become once more a society, the new title appearing in the March, 1924, issue of The Christian Science Journal. In April, 1926, the society again voted to become a church, and it has continued to grow steadily since that time.
