Hawthorne, California (First Church).

The dedication services of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Hawthorne, will be held at the new church building, 273 East Broadway, on June 8 at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., with Sunday School beginning at 9.30 a.m.

The church had its inception when a group of Christian Science students, residents of the community, gathered in a private home on September 25, 1934, and arranged for the holding of church services, Sunday School, and a Reading Room in Nelson's Hall in Hawthorne. The group took the necessary steps to organize as the Christian Science Society of Hawthorne, and received the approval and recognition of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, November 27, 1934.
