Our Mission

 

This Christian Science Church is one of the worldwide branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879. The Christian Science Church is “…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 by Mrs. Eddy.
P. 17.)

Sunday School

 

Our Sunday School is provided for students up to the age of 20. Instruction, which includes the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus, is from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. Students are taught of God’s love for them and of the relevance of Jesus’ teachings to their lives.

Hymn selection ~ Wednesday, September 15

Hymn 218                      

(Samuel Longfellow)

 

O Life that maketh all things new,

The blooming earth, the thoughts of men;

Our pilgrim feet, wet with Thy dew,

In gladness hither turn again.

 

From hand to hand the greeting flows,

From eye to eye the signals run,

From heart to heart the bright hope glows,

The seekers of the Light are one:

 

One in the freedom of the truth,

One in the joy of paths untrod,

One in the heart’s perennial youth,

One in the larger thought of God;-

 

The freer step, the fuller breath,

The wide horizon’s grander view;

The sense of Life that knows no death,-

The Life that maketh all things new.

Hymn 202 

(Rosa M. Turner)

 

O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking,

O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free;

The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking,

Unloosing bonds of all captivity.

 

He comes to bless thee on his wings of healing;

To banish pain, and wipe all tears away;

He comes anew, to humble hearts revealing

The mounting footsteps of the upward way.

 

He comes to give thee joy for desolation,

Beauty for ashes of the vanished years;

For every tear to bring full compensation,

To give thee confidence for all thy fears.

 

He comes to call the dumb to joyful singing;

The deaf to hear; the blinded eyes to see;

The glorious tidings of salvation bringing.

O captive, rise, thy Saviour comes to thee.

Hymn 436     

(Gerhard Fritzsche & Juliane Klein)

 

All may seem vain, but we are forever

With You, written in the book of Life.

You are forever, You are forever,

All may seem vain, but You endure.

You, You endure; You, You endure,

With those written in the book of Life.

 

Life is eternal, infinite light, and

It gives us conviction, strength, and might.

Infinite light, infinite light,

Life is eternal, infinite light.

Infinite light, infinite light,

It gives us conviction, and strength, and might.
