  • Walking the walk: How to live the love Jesus taught
    Saturday, October 25
    2:00 PM
    Jesus' last instructions were simple: "Love one another, as I have loved you." So why is it so hard to put Jesus' teachings into practice? Why do we judge ourselves and others too harshly? What does it take to love your enemies and to forgive those who have hurt you? These questions will be explored in this talk by international speaker Chet Manchester.

  • Thanksgiving Day service
    Thursday, November 27

    Before the food, before the football games, come with your family to a Thanksgiving church service. Every Christian Science church holds a special service on Thanksgiving Day, usually at the same time as their Sunday service. You listen to Bible readings, sing hymns, and share stories of gratitude and healing. Please join us!

  • 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.
