Florence, Oregon (Society).

Christian Science Society, Florence, Oregon, announces the dedication services of their new church edifice, Fifth and Gargnier Streets, located two blocks west of coast highway 101, to be held Sunday, August 3, 1952, at eleven o'clock in the morning and three thirty o'clock in the afternoon. ...

The history of Christian Science in Florence dates back to 1942, when a few students of Christian Science met Sunday mornings in private homes to read the Lesson-Sermons as given in the Christian Science Quarterly. Early in 1946 this group of earnest workers organized and held regular Sunday services and Wednesday evening testimony meetings. Later they applied for and received official recognition from The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and the first service of the newly formed society was held in July, 1946. The first lecture was given August 31, 1948, and as the preparatory work was completed a marked increase in Sunday School attendance followed, confirming their deep desire to give a yearly lecture.
