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, February 23

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 491

(Stephen G. Bulfinch)


Has not your heart within you burned

At evening’s calm and holy hour,

As if its inmost depths discerned

The presence of a loftier power?


It was the voice of God that spake

In silence to your silent heart,

And bade each higher thought awake,

And every dream of earth depart.


O voice of God, forever near,

In low, sweet accents whispering peace,

Make us Your harmonies to hear

Whose heavenly echoes never cease.

Hymn 296

(Maria Louise Baum)


Rouse ye, soldiers of the cross,

And lift your banner high;

Servants of a mighty cause,

Put sloth and slumber by.



Rouse ye, rouse ye, face the foe,

Rise to conquer death and sin;

On with Christ to victory go,

O side with God, and win!


Waken, hear your Captain’s call,

And follow where he trod;

Rout the cringing host of fear

By faith that walks with God.



Rouse ye, rouse ye, face the foe,

Rise to conquer death and sin;

On with Christ to victory go,

O side with God, and win!


Rouse ye: long the conquest waits

For valor’s act supreme;

Rouse ye, rest not, do the deeds

That break the earthly dream.
