Sunday Church Service consists of a Bible Lesson from our pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, an inspiring solo, and hymns. 

Wednesday Church Service includes testimonies of healing from members and guests and readings from the Bible and Science and Health on a topic needing the prayerful support of our community.

Sunday School is available for all youths under age 20.  Small, co-educational classes learn more about God, Christ Jesus, prayer, and healing.  Children too young for Sunday School are cared for in our nursery which is open during all our church services.

Christian Science Reading Rooms in each community are open several days a week to provide a quiet place to read, study, borrow, or buy Christian Science magazines, books, and CDs.  You may even shop online.
