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, May 31

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 584       

(Words by Katie Grigg-Miller)


The Lord is my Shepherd; I need not a thing.

Green pastures give rest for my soul.

Love leads me beside the still, still waters.

Love restores me, and Love makes
me whole.


Love leads me in right paths to honor
God’s name,

And though I walk through darkest days,

I won’t be afraid for Love’s here beside me

To protect me and show me the way.


Though sin would surround me, my cup overflows;

You show that I’m never alone.

Your goodness and love are mine forever;

In the dwelling of Love, I am home.

Hymn 99     

(Words by Tate & Brady)


He that hath God his guardian made,

Shall underneath th’ Almighty’s shade

Fearless and undisturbed abide;

Thus to myself of Him I’ll say,

He is my fortress, shield and stay,

My God; in Him I will confide.


His tender love and watchful care

Shall free thee from the fowler’s snare,

From every harm and pestilence.

He over thee His wings shall spread

To cover thy unguarded head.

His truth shall be thy strong defense.


He gives His angels charge o’er thee,

No evil therefore shalt thou see;

Thy refuge shall be God most high;

Dwelling within His secret place,

Thou shalt behold His power and grace,

See His salvation ever nigh.
