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 2
 

Hymn 382

(Emily F. Seal)

 

What is thy birthright, man,

Child of the perfect One;

What is thy Father’s plan

For His beloved son?

 

Thou art Truth’s honest child,

Of pure and sinless heart;

Thou treadest undefiled

In Christly paths apart.

 

Vain dreams shall disappear

As Truth dawns on the sight;

The phantoms of thy fear

Shall flee before the light.

 

Take then the sacred rod;

Thou art not error’s thrall;

Thou hast the gift of God-

Dominion over all.

Hymn 48

(Edmund Beale Sargant)

 

Dear Father-Mother, Thou dost grant

All good and perfect gifts to me;

‘Tis mine to raise this beacon here,

Obedience unto Thee.

 

He knows not death who Life obeys,

Nor errs at all when Truth he heeds;

While merged in Love, what hold has hate

Upon his thoughts or deeds?

 

Eternal Life and Truth and Love,

They who obey Thine every call,

Thy freemen are, and freely have

Dominion over all.

Hymn 5

(Irving C. Tomlinson)

 

A voice from heaven we have heard,

The call to rise from earth;

Put armor on, the sword now gird,

And for the fight go forth.

The foe in ambush claims our prize,

Then heed high heaven’s call.

Obey the voice of Truth, arise,

And let not fear enthrall.

 

The cause requires unswerving might:

With God alone agree.

Then have no other aim than right;

End bondage, O be free.

Depart from sin, awake to love:

Your mission is to heal.

Then all of Truth you must approve,

And only know the real.
