Atlantic City, New Jersey (First Church).

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Atlantic City, at 4 South Brighton Avenue, was dedicated on Sunday, December 16, 1945, at services in the morning and afternoon. The following historical account was read by the First Reader:

"Since the first Sunday in January, 1906, Christian Science services have been held continuously in Atlantic City, first in private homes, then in accessible halls, until an edifice was erected on the present site in 1910. This structure was dedicated on Sunday, November 18, 1917. First Church was organized in 1907, and became a recognized branch of The Mother Church the same year.

"The present edifice was erected during the early part of 1929, and the pipe organ was a gift of the Sunday School children."
