Church Dedications

The Daily Olympian

Olympia, Washington (Society).

Simple ceremonies marked the dedication of the new building of Christian Science Society, Olympia, at Plymouth Street and Garfield Avenue on Sunday, November 5, 1950. Two identical dedication services were held, one beginning at eleven o'clock in the morning and the other at three o'clock in the afternoon.

The church structure was opened for services on July 2, 1950. The church is ultramodern in design and features unpretentious simplicity. The tastefully decorated interior makes it one of the outstanding small churches in the Pacific Northwest. None of the traditional marks of church architecture are observable on the outside. Only the name of the organization and a cross set in the wall at the front entrance identify it as a place of worship. The Readers' platform is finished in maple burl and pine and the pews in birch. The building also contains a Sunday School room and a Reading Room.
