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, January 23

2nd Hymn: 459                 

(Simon Browne)


Come, gracious Spirit,

heavenly Love,

With light and comfort from above;

Be Truth our guardian,

Love our guide,

O’er every thought and step preside,

Be God our guide.


The light of Truth to us display,

That we may know and choose

Your way;

Plant holy joy in every heart,

That we from You may ne’er depart,

Plant joy in every heart.


Lead us, O Christ, the living Way,

Nor let us from your precepts stray;

Lead us to God, our heavenly rest,

That we may be forever blest,

Forever blest.

1st Hymn: 175                    

(Violet Hay)


Lo, He sent His Word and

healed them,

Still that Word of God is here.

Still its tender healing message

Speaks to every listening ear.

Truth divine, that overcometh

All the ills that seem to be,

In our hearts Thy Word abiding,

We may know Thee and be free.


Love divine, that faileth never,

Still Thy presence and Thy power

Mighty are to save and heal us,

Guard and guide us every hour.

Life divine, Thy Word proclaimeth

All true being one with Thee.

Sinless, fearless, whole, rejoicing,

Now and through eternity.


(Adrienne M. Tindall)


Amazing grace! how sweet

the sound!

That saved a one like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see!


For God has never taught us fear,

His grace all fears relieves!

How precious does that

grace appear

Whene’er a heart believes!


Through many dangers, trials,

and snares

I have already come!

‘Tis grace has brought me safe,

save thus far,

And grace will lead me home!


The Lord provides all good to me,

His word my hope secures.

All trials will pass, all turmoils flee,

His grace alone endures.

3rd Hymn: 293                

(Frederic W. Root)


Rock of Ages, Truth divine,

Be Thy strength forever mine;

Let me rest secure on Thee,

Safe above life’s raging sea.

Rock of Ages, Truth divine,

Be Thy strength forever mine.


Rock of Truth, our fortress strong,

Thou our refuge from all wrong,

When from mortal sense I flee,

Let me hide myself in Thee.

Rock of Ages, Truth divine,

Be Thy strength forever mine.


Christ, the Truth, foundation sure,

On this rock we are secure;

Peace is there our life to fill,

Cure is there for every ill.

Rock of Ages, Truth divine,

Be Thy strength forever mine.
