"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.
** THIS IS A SPECIAL UPDATE FOR YOU, OUR CONGREGANTS. **
Suffolk County's Health Department has informed our church that we are to continue to suspend all Sunday and Wednesday services, and Reading Room activities until further notice.
* We are closely monitoring all information in this connection, as we look forward to opening our doors once again. When we are able to do so, we will make that announcement on this web site . *
Until then, you may hear online Christian Science Services on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. EDT and
online Wednesday Testimony Meetings at
2:00 p.m. EDT by going to: ChristianScience.com.
On the website select: "Online services and events".
We join our prayers with those prayers of our community, our country and the world.
Wherever you are, infinite Love, God, is with you.
"The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
"For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All."
[Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,
by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 17]

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

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.

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.
This is the Bible Lesson subject for the week ending on Sunday, May 31st:
"Ancient and Modern Necromancy, alias Mesmerism and Hypnotism, Denounced"
Here is a Bible passage from this Lesson:
"In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress."
[Psalms 71: 1, 3 King James Version]
