We are a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston and one of thousands of branch churches worldwide in 80 countries.
We offer two weekly services. Our Sunday service is from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and our Wednesday evening service is from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The Sunday service is based on the weekly Bible Lessons and includes readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, hymns and a solo.
The Wednesday evening testimony meeting includes readings from the Bible and Science and Health that speak to current issues or needs in the community or the world. Following the reading, those in attendance may voluntarily stand and give gratitude for experiences of spiritual healing or insight gained from the study of Christian Science. Child care for all services is provided free of charge, under the care and supervision of experienced adults.
All children and young adults up to the age of 20 are welcome in our Christian Science Sunday School.
Sunday School service is held during the same hour as our Sunday church service, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am.
Loving childcare is provided for youngsters too young to sit through a regular Sunday School or Sunday service. Parents do not need to be members or even attendees of the church for their children to participate in this valuable spiritual education.
Sunday School students learn stories from the Bible, lessons of Christ Jesus’ healing ministry and of God’s unconditional love for each one of us. Students are encouraged to discuss events in their daily lives and how challenges can be transformed into blessings through God’s love.
