What is Church?

Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science offers this description in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures:

“The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick.”


Church Services

Sunday Morning 10:30 — 11:30 a.m.
The current weekly Bible Lesson Sermon is read to the congregation by two Readers. The King James Version of the Bible is read by the Second Reader, and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy is read by the First Reader. These two books are the pastors of Christian Science churches throughout the world. The same Lesson Sermon is read on Sundays in Christian Science churches in over 70 countries worldwide.

fullsizerender-4Sunday School 10:30 — 11:30 a.m.
Sunday School is held at the same time as church. Those up to the age of 20 are invited to attend. Students are taught lessons based on the teaching and healing works of Christ Jesus. They also learn how they can rely on God, and how they can prove for themselves that spiritual thinking and living is practical, and brings blessings to all aspects of their lives.

Wednesday Evening Testimony Meetings 7:00 — 8:00 p.m.
After the opening hymn, there are brief readings from the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Following these are a few moments of silent prayer and the second hymn. Then testimonies are given by those wishing to share healing experiences that have come about through the study and application of Christian Science in their daily lives. The meeting closes with the singing of the third hymn.

"The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, a spiritual understanding of him, an unselfed love."
