The Hinsdale Doings

Hinsdale, Illinois (First Church).

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Hinsdale, officially dedicated its new church edifice Sunday, July 20, 1952, holding services at eleven o'clock in the morning and four in the afternoon. A history of the church was read at each service.

First organized in 1931 by a group of Hinsdale residents, who, up to that time, had been members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, La Grange, the charter members of this church were recognized as a Christian Science Society by The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts, on September 12 of that year. On the following day, Sunday, September 13, regular Christian Science service and Sunday School were held in the Monroe School Auditorium; Wednesday evening testimony meetings began on September 16. For the next twenty-one years the facilities of Monroe School continued to be used and enjoyed by this church, through the gracious co-operation of the Board of Education.
