About Christian Science
What is Christian Science?
Christian Science teaches that God is Love and that we are His beloved children. It is a church founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866 who explains that “The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science is Love.” Its teachings are based on the life and ministry of Christ Jesus. Read more
What Do Christian Scientists Believe?
Christian Scientists believe in one infinite God who is all and entirely good, and that He is not distant and unknowable, but all-encompassing and always present. Each individual is loved and cared for by God and made in God’s image — spiritual, not material. This understanding replaces sin and disease with harmony and health, peace and inspiration. Read more

What is Sunday School all about?
Teachers introduce spiritual lessons found in the Bible and how these lessons are practical and how youngsters can apply these lessons in day-to-day situations. Classes are arranged by age and facilitated by loving, dedicated, and experienced teachers.
Your children learn how God’s love heals mental and physical problems and harmonizes conflict situations. And they learn how God is the source of true joy and peace of mind. All these lessons help them lead happy, productive lives.
Christian Science Practitioners…
…are available to talk with you, meet with you, and above all, to pray with you for healing any type of problem.

What can you expect at a Sunday Christian Science service?
The Bible and the Christian Science textbook are our only preachers. The weekly Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson is read as our sermon at all Christian Science churches through the world. The Lesson is comprised of citations relevant to each weekly subject from our Pastor: the Bible and our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. To learn more see www.ebiblelesson.com.
In addition, Bible passages selected by local “readers” are read at the beginning and end of each Sunday service. Three hymns are sung by the congregation during the service.
These Bible passages and hymns from our recent services are listed below, and include a PDF with Bible texts of the opening Scriptural selection, closing benediction, and hymn lyrics.

Wednesday Testimony Meetings 7:30-8:30 p.m.
This midweek Testimony Meeting is a wonderful opportunity to express gratitude to God for healing. These Meetings are opened with a hymn, then carefully selected passages are read from The Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, on a topic the Reader (elected by the church members) has selected.
After praying together and singing another hymn, the meeting is opened up for attendees to share testimonies of healing or remarks on Christian Science. The hour-long meeting concludes with a final hymn.
Readings from recent testimony meetings are listed below. A PDF is provided with the full readings and hymn lyrics for each service.
