"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]
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
Christian Science is based on the teachings of Jesus. It is a Christian religion that follows the inspired word of the Bible - both the Old and the
New Testaments - 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.
** WE ARE OPEN! **
We are very grateful to report that our church
has resumed services on Sundays; testimony meetings on Wednesdays; and Reading Room hours on Thursdays and Saturdays.
We are observing guidelines in connection with
social distancing as required
by local and state officials.
Each 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.
WEDNESDAY TESTIMONY MEETINGS:
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 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.
Our one-hour Sunday worship service is held at 10:00 a.m. and is open to everyone. At this service you will hear a Bible Lesson read by two lay readers. Each week the Bible Lesson explores a specific topic which is relatable and helpful in addressing solutions for everyday needs.
You are cordially invited to join us.
We also 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. And they learn how they can use these truths in their daily lives. Sunday School convenes at the same time as the church service.
