Meet our Readers

A unique feature is that we don’t have personal preachers or pastors conducting the services. Our Pastor is the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the textbook of Christian Science. On Sundays, two lay readers conduct services that are based on weekly Bible Lessons that are studied by Christian Scientists throughout the world.

Sunday Morning Worship Services

10:00 AM in-person or by phone

It's a time for reflection, renewal and healing.  If you're attending for the first time you will recognize familiar elements - hymns, prayer, readings from the Bible, a warm sense of fellowship.  

There is a simplicity to the services that is very much in keeping with the earliest Christian gatherings where love and healing were at the heart of worship. See the tenets of Christian Science.

Sunday School 

10:00 AM in-person or via Zoom

Sunday School is currently holding in-person and  virtual classes for teens and young children. 

Wednesday Testimony Meetings

7:30 PM in-person, via Zoom or by phone

On Wednesday evenings we gather for an informal mid-week meeting with inspiring readings and hymns.  A portion of the meeting is always set aside for people to give thanks for blessings and healing experiences that have resulted from prayer and their study of Christian Science.  Beginning June 2, 2021, the meeting will be conducted in the church auditorium on the first Wednesday of each month, and via Zoom the remainder of each month.

​The readings are posted on our website each week.
