Furthering Church Expansion

South Pasadena, California

Several months before the lease on our ground-floor Christian Science Reading Room was to expire, the executive hoard of the church asked the Reading Room committee to give consideration to moving to a more centrally located building. After careful investigation, the committee recommended that no change be made. Later it was learned that our rent would be increased. As the center of business activity was moving north and west, the committee was again asked to make a thorough study of all suitable vacancies. The only vacancy which seemed to meet our requirements was in an old building. An architect (a church member) was asked to submit recommendations for remodeling. It was found that the necessary changes would be so extensive that the cost would be prohibitive.
