On Sunday, January 9, 1949, First Church of Christ, Scientist, floral Park, held three dedication services at 70 Floral Parkway, in the morning, afternoon, and evening. The First Reader read an announcement which was substantially as follows:

"In September, 1946, a group of Christian Scientists, feeling the need for a Christian Science Society in Floral Park, called a meeting of all those interested in such a project. As the need for the society grew more apparent after investigation, organization was completed in November of that year. Generous assistance in securing necessary equipment having been given by neighboring churches and friends, opening services were conducted on December 15, 1946, at the Nassau Athletic Club building, 364 Plainfield Avenue, Floral Park. The Sunday School convened at the same time as the church service. On January 16, 1947, the organization was recognized as a branch society of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.
