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, December 7

Hymn 77      

(Words by James Montgomery)

 

God is my strong salvation;

What foe have I to fear?

In darkness and temptation,

My light, my help is near:

Though hosts encamp around me,

Firm in the fight I stand;

What terror can confound me,

With God at my right hand?

 

Place on the Lord reliance;

My heart, with courage wait;

His truth be thine affiance,

When faint and desolate:

His might thy heart shall strengthen,

His love thy joy increase;

Thy day shall mercy lengthen:

The Lord will give thee peace.

Hymn 518                           

(Words by Henry Francis Lyte)

 

Know, O child, your full salvation;

Rise o’er sin and fear and care;

Joy to find, in every station,

Something still to do, or bear.

 

Think what spirit dwells within you;

Think what Father’s smiles are yours;

Think what Jesus did to show you:

Spirit’s promise lifts, restores.

 

Hasten on from grace to glory,

Armed with faith and winged with prayer;

Heaven’s eternal day before you

God’s own hand shall guide you there.

 

So fulfill your holy mission,

Safely pass through pilgrim-days,

Hope shall grow to full fruition,

Faith to sight and prayer to praise.

Hymn 350                   

(Words by Mary Peters)

 

Through the love of God our Saviour

All will be well;

Free and changeless is His favor;

All must be well;

Precious is the Love that healed us,

Perfect is the grace that sealed us,

Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us;

All, all is well.

 

Though we pass through tribulation,

All will be well;

Ours is such a full salvation,

All must be well;

Happy still, in God confiding,

Fruitful, when in Christ abiding,

Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding;

All, all is well.

 

We expect a bright tomorrow,

All will be well;

Faith can sing through days of sorrow,

All must be well;

While His truth we are applying,

And upon His love relying,

God is every need supplying,

All, all is well.
