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 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 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.
WEDNESDAY TESTIMONY MEETINGS:
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 that learning about God has given their lives more purpose and peace.
On Thursdays and Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., our church edifice doubles as a Reading Room. 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 study and/or purchase the Holy Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and various other Christian Science literature.

Free Video Lecture -- Thursday, February 7th

Our next featured Christian Science video lecture will be on:
Thursday, February 7th at 12:00 noon. Our lecturer will be Mary Bothwell, C.S.B. and the title of her lecture is: “Experiencing Heaven Now”.
In her talk, Mary shares a conviction that divine Love is here for everyone to experience. She discusses how anyone can become genuinely aware of God’s presence and experience heaven — harmony, health, and happiness — here and now. This heaven isn’t a place, but a tangible feeling of being enveloped in love, and from understanding more about God and our direct relationship with Him.
Please mark your calendars for noon on Thursday, February 7th for this special event. We very much look forward to welcoming you then.
