Wednesday Readings

Featured

Wednesday 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 these readings, the congregation prays silently and repeats the Lord’s Prayer, followed by a hymn, and notices.

At this point, the meeting is opened up for those present to share experiences, testimonies of healing, or remarks on Christian Science. The hour-long meeting concludes with a hymn and is also available by conference call-in. (Email us at christianscience.morristown@gmail.com for the phone number and access code).
