Our Sunday Service includes a warm sense of fellowship in a small gathering.

We are a casual, come as you are church, welcoming everyone to our services. We currently have both in-person and online options for attending.


Our Sunday services include music, a solo, scriptural readings, prayer, and a sermon. The sermon is the weekly Bible lesson from our Pastor  -  the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by the Discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy 


At the same time as church, we conduct Sunday School classes for children up to the age of 20. We have childcare for those too young for Sunday School.


Our Wednesday Testimony Meeting offers a refuge in the middle of your week.

The Wednesday evening meeting is an encouraging message from our Pastor offering spiritual inspiration and affirming that Christian healing is alive and well.  Included in the meeting are hymns, the Lord’s Prayer, and inspiring readings from our Pastor that give spiritual insight to current issues in the news or individual lives.


A portion of the meeting is always set aside for those attending to give thanks for blessings and healing experiences that have resulted from their prayer and study of Christian Science. Often the inspiration that one person shares meets the spiritual needs of another.  Childcare is available for children too young to attend the Wednesday meetings.

Meet our Pastor

A unique feature of Christian Science is that we have an impersonal pastor consisting of the Bible and Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy On Sundays, two lay readers, elected by our church membership, conduct services by reading passages from our Pastor. These readings comprise our Weekly Bible Lesson. Learn more about our Pastor

Weekly Bible Lessons are at the heart of Christian Science practice.

The Bible Lesson sermon, read on Sundays, is a compilation of texts from the Bible and Science and Health on a specific topic. Christian Science students around the world read and study the same Bible Lesson throughout the week preceding the Sunday service. The lessons are available for study or purchase at our Reading Room or online. 


Those who have been studying this lesson each week have the opportunity to support the sermon’s healing message for the world as they listen to it read on Sundays. Together, these books (our Pastor) offer the spiritual sense of the Word and bring inspiration and healing in a pure and gentle way. If you have never experienced the simplicity and healing presence of a Christian Science service, you are in for a spiritual feast!
