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 ~ Sunday, November 28

1st Hymn: 10                    

(Frederic W. Root)

 

All power is given unto our Lord,

On Him we place reliance;

With truth from out His sacred word

We bid our foes defiance.

With Him we shall prevail,

Whatever may assail;

He is our shield and tower,

Almighty is His power;

His kingdom is forever.

 

Rejoice, ye people, praise His name,

His care doth e’er surround us.

His love to error’s thralldom came,

And from its chains unbound us.

Our Lord is God alone,

No other power we own;

No other voice we heed,

No other help we need;

His kingdom is forever.

 

O then give thanks to God on high,

Who life to all is giving;

The hosts of death before Him fly,

In Him we all are living.

Then let us know no fear,

Our King is ever near;

Our stay and fortress strong,

Our strength, our hope, our song;

His kingdom is forever.

2nd Hymn: 292              

(Maria Louise Baum)

 

Put on the whole armor of pure consecration,

The breastplate of righteousness valiantly gird,

With shield of true faith, and the helmet of salvation-

The sword of the Spirit is God’s mighty Word!

 

For His is the greatness, the power and the glory,

The victory His, when for succor we call;

His majesty shines in creation’s wondrous story,

And He is exalted as head over all!

Solo               

(Robert J. Dufford)

 

You shall cross the barren desert

But you shall not die of thirst.

You shall wander far in safety

Though you do not know the way.

You shall speak your words in

foreign lands

And all will understand.

You shall see the face of God and live.

 

[Chorus]

Be not afraid,

I go before you always.

Come follow me

And I will give you rest.

 

Blessed are your poor

For the kingdom shall be theirs.

Blessed are you that weep and mourn

For one day you shall laugh

And if wicked tongues insult and

hate you

All because of me,

Blessed, blessed are you.

 

[Chorus]

Be not afraid,

I go before you always.

Come follow me

And I will give you rest.

 

[Chorus]

Be not afraid,

I go before you always.

Come follow me

And I will give you rest.

 

[Chorus]

Be not afraid,

I go before you always.

Come follow me

And I will give you rest.

3rd Hymn: 540                  

(Mary Baker Eddy)

 

O gentle presence, peace and joy and power;

O Life divine, that owns each waiting hour,

Thou Love that guards the nestling’s faltering flight!

Keep Thou my child on upward wing tonight.

 

Love is our refuge; only with

mine eye

Can I behold the snare, the pit,

the fall:

His habitation high is here,

and nigh,

His arm encircles me, and mine, and all.

 

O make me glad for every

scalding tear,

For hope deferred, ingratitude, disdain!

Wait, and love more for every hate, and fear

No ill,-since God is good, and loss is gain.

 

Beneath the shadow of His

mighty wing;

In that sweet secret of the

narrow way,

Seeking and finding, with the angels sing:

“Lo, I am with you alway,”-watch and pray.

 

No snare, no fowler, pestilence

or pain;

No night drops down upon the troubled breast,

When heaven’s aftersmile earth’s tear-drops gain,

And mother finds her home and heav’nly rest.
