Sunday church service with Readers and musicians

Sunday Church Service

You are warmly invited to attend our weekly Sunday church services!

Sunday Services:

Sundays

10 - 11 am

 

Childcare is provided for children

too young to attend Sunday School.

Our church services consist of music; hymns; scriptural readings; the Bible Lesson, including the Lesson-Sermon, and prayer.

 

At the heart of our Sunday service is our weekly Bible Lesson, read at Christian Science churches around the world (and studied the week prior to Sunday).

It centers upon a particular subject for that week and is comprised of citations from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science.

Our full Order of Service is below.

Weekly Bible Lesson

The Bible Lesson for the week is one of 26 lesson subjects.  Each of these subjects appears twice during the year and in the order listed below.  The lessons may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly (an usher will provide you with a print version for the service.)

 

Christian Scientists study this lesson throughout the week prior to Sunday to deepen their understanding and find answers and healing.  You may find the Quarterly in our Reading Room, next door to our church, or as a subscription online (print and/or electronic formats available).

Lay Readers read the Lesson-Sermon from these books each Sunday.
