I love gathering with my church family on Sunday to listen to the Bible Sermon and on Wednesday to participate in the sharing of healings and lessons learned from our individual study of Christian Science.
For those who can't be with us in person, you can listen by calling

Sunday morning worship services
It's a time for reflection, spiritual regeneration 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.
Sunday School classes, for students up to the age of 20, are held upstairs at the same time as the church service. Child care is available for infants and children too young for Sunday School.
Wednesday testimony meetings
On Wednesday evenings we gather for an informal mid-week meeting with hymns and inspiring readings from our Pastor.
A portion of the meeting is always set aside for people to give thanks for blessings and healing experiences that have resulted from their prayer and 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.

A unique feature of Christian Science church services is that we don’t have personal preachers.
On Sundays, two lay readers, elected by church members to serve a three-year term, conduct services that are based on that week's Bible Lesson, described below.
The lessons consist of passages taken from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and they form the basis of our Sunday church services.
The lessons come in various formats and languages to suit your study preferences.
Ample parking is available on church property.
