The Sunday worship service is dedicated to spiritual healing and redemption which Christ Jesus taught and practiced.
The service is led by two Readers elected by the members of the Church and includes readings from the King James version of the Bible and correlative passages fromScience and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. These readings are called Lesson-Sermons and are studied by the congregation during the week, culminating in song and praise on Sunday morning. The Bible Lessons are rich in spiritual truths that help guide us in effective prayer for ourselves, our families, our communities, and for our world.
Sunday School is at the same time as our church service. A Children’s Room is provided for children too young for Sunday School on Sundays and through the age of 7 during the Wednesday evening testimony meetings.
Wednesday Testimony Meeting
The Wednesday evening testimony meetings are a time of spiritual fellowship. Come and share hymns of gratitude and praise and listen to readings from our Pastor, the Bible and the Christian Science Textbook. The topics chosen by the Reader each week focus on important and pressing issues of the day. These inspired readings uplift thought and help us to find healing solutions for life's challenges.
That's not all! After you've been spiritually inspired and refreshed, then comes the sharing portion of the meeting. Everyone is invited to give testimony to God's healing presence in their lives. Sometimes healing insights come from the Lesson-Sermon for the week or an article in one of the Christian Science periodicals, and sometimes testimonies are just heartfelt expressions of gratitude for the good in our lives.
