"And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying,
This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, 

and when ye turn to the left." — Isaiah 30:21  [King James Bible]

What do we offer?


 If you want to experience the peace and joy that comes from living a life directed by God’s love, you have come to the right place.  Our Christian Science Society is one of the many world-wide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.  

We are located at:
296 West Main Street
Bay Shore, New York  11706


What is Christian Science?


Christian Science is based on the teachings of Jesus.  It is a Christian religion that follows the inspired word of the Bible, along with the textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.  Science and Health has its sole foundation in the Bible, and elucidates the timeless principles and guidelines found there.  These two books show how God’s care and goodness can be felt in everyday life, in practical ways.

You are warmly welcome!



Every Sunday we host a one-hour service beginning at 10:00 a.m. during which a Bible Lesson presenting a specific subject is read by a 

First and Second Reader.


We offer Sunday School at 10:00 a.m. for children and young people up to the age of 20.  Sunday School pupils learn fundamental truths from the Bible, including the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, 

and Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. 


Our one-hour testimony meetings are held every week at 4:30 p.m.  

At these meetings you will hear a short topical reading 

from the Bible and Science and Health.  This is followed by attendees individually sharing thanks for the ways in which learning about God's goodness has given their lives more purpose and peace.


If you're interested in learning more about Christian Science,
a Reading Room is a good place to start.  

On Thursdays and Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 

1:00 p.m., our church edifice doubles as a Reading Room.  Open to the public, Reading Rooms are a peaceful place for everyone to come in and read, pray and take a few quiet moments to recharge.  

In our Reading Room, you will be able to purchase or borrow the Holy Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and various other Christian Science literature.  

You can find a nearby Christian Science Reading Room
via a quick Internet search.  

And when you're in the area you are always invited to 

stop by and visit us at ours.
