We are happy that you are here. Whether you are searching for information about Christian Science or wanting to know about our services, we are here to offer loving help.

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 1

Hymn 268             

(Words by Emily F. Seal)

 

Our God is All-in-all,

His children cannot fear;

See baseless evil fall,

And know that God is here.

 

Our God is All; in space

No subtle error creeps;

We see Truth’s glowing face,

And Love that never sleeps.

 

We see creative Mind,

The Principle, the Life;

And Soul and substance find,

But never discord, strife.

 

O, Perfect and Divine,

We hear Thy loving call,

And seek no earthly shrine

But crown Thee Lord of all.

Hymn 476                                   

(Words by Friedrich Preller)

 

Fearful heart, put all your cares

Completely in your dear God’s hands;

Love feeds you with Her great strength

And your faith will always stand.

Now as you go safely forward,

Walk securely in Love’s grace.

Give to God the praise and glory;

Fear and doubt have no more place.

 

Longing heart, don’t give up hope

When threats of evil overwhelm.

Love now keeps Her promise true,

God’s sure hand is at the helm.

Bringing joy when all seems darkness—

God will keep you safe, secure.

You go forward, loved and peaceful:

Victory is always sure.

Hymn 370                       

(Word by Nellie B. Mace)

 

We are hid with Christ forever

In the Father’s holy plan.

In this pure eternal union

We behold the perfect man;

And we know that sin can never

Overthrow the sacred rod

Of dominion over evil:

We are hid with Christ in God.

 

Hid with Christ in God, O gladness:

O the meekness and the might,

When the risen Christ has lifted

All our thoughts into the light,

Light of Truth wherein no sadness

Dims the radiant peace we find,

As we set our whole affection

On the beauteous things of Mind.
