"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 author 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, The Holy Bible and Science and Health, show how God’s care and goodness can be felt
in everyday life, in practical ways.

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

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

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.
This is the Bible Lesson subject for the week of:
Monday, January 25th through Sunday, January 31st:
Here is a Bible passage from this Lesson:
". . . God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them."
[First John 4: 16 from the Holy Bible, New Living Translation]
Wednesday testimony meetings are held at 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday afternoon. Please feel free to come and hear how practical Christianity is being lived today.

Reading Rooms provide a peaceful place to read, reflect and pray. The Holy Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, The Christian Science Monitor and other Christian Science literature are available for you to peruse or purchase.
Our Christian Science noontime video lecture series will continue on
Thursday, February 4th at 12:00 p.m.
The subject of this video lecture is: "The Healing Power of Unselfishness" with speaker Lois Carlson, CSB. In her talk, Lois relates the fact that God has made His children to be naturally unselfish. And also that God loves us enough so that we in turn can love one another. Loving in this way can and does have a wonderful effect on our lives and the lives of others.
In case helpful to note, we are observing social distancing practices and are asking that all attendees wear a mask, as required by local and state officials.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Christian Science video lectures, at noontime, every first Thursday of the month.
