Sunday church services and Wednesday testimony meetings

Sunday church services

People sitting in pews

On Sundays at Churches of Christ, Scientist around the world, you’ll find a friendly greeting, music, singing, scriptural readings, prayer, and a sermon. The sermon is based on a weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson from our pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. A democratically elected lay "First Reader" will run the service and read from Science and Health, while a "Second Reader" will read from the Bible. Typically, the service lasts an hour, and Sunday School classes are held at the same time as the service. Wherever you go to church, we hope you'll introduce yourself to the Readers and your fellow attendees.

Wednesday testimony meetings

Someone giving a testimony

Wednesday meetings are similar to Sunday services, but the First Reader alone runs the meeting, gathering Scriptural readings customized to the needs of the congregation and occasion. You’ll also hear fellow attendees share insights, experiences, and healings they've had as a result of their prayers and study of Christian Science. Typically, the service lasts an hour, and afterward, we hope you'll introduce yourself to the Reader and your fellow attendees.

Sunday School

Christian Science Sunday School Nursery Class

Sunday School is typically offered at the same time as Sunday services. Each Sunday School class is designed to meet the needs of each individual student. Classes are based on the Bible, and, together with teachers, students can gain new insights into it with the help of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
