In the year 1908 a small group of students of Christian Science began to meet on Sundays in the home of one of the students for the reading of the Lesson-Sermons [outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly ]. After about eight months the meetings were disbanded and again renewed in 1911. Later, meetings were held in the Covina Woman's Club. In 1912 [the group] organized, and [on October 14 it was recognized by The Mother Church as Christian Science Society, Covina, California].
