Clermont, Florida (Society).

Christian Science Society, Clermont, will dedicate their new church building at the Sunday morning service on March 28, 1954. The building of this church was made possible by two grants, one from the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy, and one from the Selina C. Cornish Fund, together with a substantial building fund and generous gifts from members and friends.

The first interest in Christian Science in Clermont was in 1935 when a small group of Christian Scientists got together to read the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly.

In 1936 the use of the Community Building was offered them for a meeting place, and an informal group was organized and held regular services. On September 28, 1944, the group was accepted as a society ... by The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.

The new church is located on the corner of Minneola Avenue and Fifth Street. Although small, the structure is of exceptional grace and beauty of style, appropriate to Florida, in a setting which is being beautified with plantings of palms and shrubs.
