Reading RoomA community bookstore, a quiet study room for prayer and healing, and a lending library!
Sunday SchoolYounger students focus on learning the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer, and the Sermon on the Mount, while older students explore how to apply a spiritual perspective to their daily lives.
Sunday School offers spiritual education for young people up to the age of 20.
Students learn to identify God through synonyms such as Love, Truth, and Life. Together, we find examples of His gentle guidance in the Scriptures and see how these lessons bless us today – just as they blessed others many years ago.
Christian Scientists are assuredly Christian.
Christian Scientists believe in one, infinite God who is all and all-good. We believe that God is not distant and unknowable. Instead, we believe He is all-encompassing and always present and that each individual is loved by God, cared for by Him, and made in God’s image—spiritual, not material.
Christian Scientists believe in the Bible and in Christ Jesus as the Son of God, or promised Messiah. And we believe that Jesus’ teachings and healing work expressed scientific Christianity, or the application of the laws of God—laws which are still practical and provable today, by anyone, anywhere. Christian Scientists consider the Commandments, as well as Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, to be central to their lives and practice of Christianity.
Above all, Christian Scientists believe in the healing power of God’s love — that no one is beyond redemption — and no problem is too entrenched or overwhelming to be resolved. In other words, Christian Scientists don’t believe that salvation occurs at some point in the future, but that the presence of God’s goodness can be experienced here and now—and by everyone.
In 1879, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, founded the Church of Christ, Scientist. Her purpose was to establish a church designed, “to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” (Manual of The Mother Church)
These churches are branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. Join us on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Sunday School for students up to the age of twenty begins at the same time.
