Newark, New York (First Church).

The auditorium of First Church of Christ, Scientist, was twice filled for its dedicatory services last Sunday. ... A brief history on the group of the Christian Science group in Newark was presented by the First Reader. ...

As early as 1884, Newark was touched by its first glimpse of this truth. A practitioner from the Middle West, on her way home from class instruction with Mary Baker Eddy, stopped in Mewark and brought the healing truth to at least two persons who were later to become charter members in the Christian Science Society, Newark. In 1905 a teacher in the Newark High School added another group to those interested. Meanwhile, at the home of our present charter member ... a deep interest was also growing. Eventually these various groups joined and began to meet together on Sunday afternoons.
