Sunday Church Service

Our Sunday church services are held at 10:30 am until 11:30 am, and include a lesson sermon from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Our service also includes time to join with the congregation in silent prayer and sing hymns filled with inspiration and comfort. You and your family are welcome to join us!

The parking lot adjacent to the church and is free.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School is held at the same hour as our church service, from 10:30 until 11:30, where we welcome children and young adults up to the age of 20. Students are taught basic lessons from the Bible, as well as how they can turn to a loving God for help and comfort. Children too young for Sunday School are lovingly cared for in our children’s room. We’d love to have your family join us next Sunday!

Wednesday Testimony Meetings

Each Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm, we hold an informal testimony meeting. It’s an inspiring and uplifting mid-week opportunity to draw closer to God and hear how others are using the lessons learned in Christian Science to help them solve life’s challenges. Everyone is welcome to join us, and child care is provided!
