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.



Services are at 780 Abrego Street, Monterey.

Sunday morning service and Sunday school begins at 10:00 AM. 

Wednesday evening testimony meeting is at 7:30 PM.

José de Dios Mata

Saturday, April 11, 2:30 pm PT

Healdsburg, California

Webinar URL: http://zoom.us/j/4543332302

The message is clear and simple. Heaven is within us, and not a place in the future. It is a mental and spiritual state without a single element of delay or waiting that is at hand as Christ Jesus taught. This lecture takes a look at how we can bring healing, restoration and regeneration to our lives by actively living moment by moment in the kingdom of harmony.

Find innocence that is powerful not vulnerable
Brian Pennix

Sunday, April 12, 2:00 pm PT

Oakland, California

Webinar URL: christianscienceoakland.org/

Through my study of Christian Science, I’ve come to see that God is Love itself, which empowers us with God-derived innocence. This innocence is based on God’s unconditional love; it indicates that we’re safe depending on divine Love as our source, and it means we can have an undoubting expectation of good. The very substance of our being is pure and perfect, like our Maker, and cannot change. Our innate innocence means we always deserve to be free from pain, both mental and physical, as I experienced in college and since. And we have the ability to bring freedom and goodness to others, even those that would victimize.
