  • Mid-week Spiritual Break
    Thursdays, 2pm
    Looking for an oasis in the midst of an active week? Try this refreshing idea to boost your spiritual mercury level. Every Wednesday, we log on the computer to join the online congregation of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston: it consists of readings specially compiled for the day, as well as testimonies submitted by listeners. These readings are from the Christian Science pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. An organ prelude, hymns, and postlude are included. Testimonies of healing and other comments about Christian Science are submitted by listeners via email and are read live by two testimony readers.

    All are welcome to join members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Alexandria, as we read through the Bible, about 8 chapters a month. This Bible study group is led by the participants through informal discussion about the reading assignment, which participants read in preparation. Bible commentaries, translations, maps, and other resources are available during the meeting. The purpose is to learn, grow, explore together, and gain a deeper understanding of the Bible.
