Sunday Services 10:30 a.m.
Our church is one of the worldwide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. We meet each Sunday morning to sing hymns, pray, and listen to the Weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson. This Lesson-Sermon is studied during the week and then read as a Sunday sermon in all Christian Science churches throughout the world. In both its roles as a lesson and as a sermon, it is designed to inspire and to heal.
The Lesson-Sermon consists of passages from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. These two books are our Pastor. Our Sunday services are conducted by two readers elected by church members. The First Reader conducts the services and reads from the Christian Science textbook. The Second Reader reads the Bible passages. Our services also include silent prayer followed by praying the Lord’s Prayer aloud together. Music is an important part of our services. We sing inspirational hymns, and enjoy listening to a soloist and to organ and piano music.
Our church services are conducted by two readers, elected by church members for three-year terms.
Wednesday Testimony Meetings 7:30 p.m.
Our Wednesday testimony meetings include hymn singing, prayer, and readings from the Bible and Science and Health selected by our First Reader. The readings and hymns focus on subjects important to daily life, such as supply, health, forgiveness, and relationships. Often they address current events or explore a Bible story in depth.
Members and attendees are invited to share informal testimonies of how their understanding of God’s power has healed discords of every kind in their own lives.
Music, including hymn singing, is an important part of our services.
We provide care for infants and young children in our nursery during both Sunday services and Wednesday testimony meetings. The nursery is filled with toys, books, and love. On Wednesdays, school-aged children may do homework or other quiet activities in the children’s room while their parents attend the testimony meeting — of course, they are more than welcome to attend the testimony meeting and participate!
Young people up to the age of 20 may participate in our Sunday School. It meets at the same time as the Sunday service, and visitors are always welcome!
There is ample free on-street parking near the church. Free parking is also available in the municipal lot across the street on West Washington.
