Church Dedications

The Harvey Tribune

Harvey, Illinois (First Church).

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Harvey, will dedicate its church edifice at 155th st and Myrtle ave on Sunday according to an announcement from the church's executive board. Two services will be held, the first beginning at 10.45 a.m and the second at 4 p.m.

The history of the Harvey Christian Science church dates back to 1908 when a small group of students interested in Christian Science began meeting in their homes. The group was recognized as a Christian Science Society [by] The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass, Feb. 21, 1909, and in March of that year the society began holding regular Sunday services and Wednesday evening meetings in the Land Association building at 15432 Park ave. A Reading Room was established at the same location.
