The heart of our Sunday service is a Bible Lesson- Sermon comprised of citations read from the King James Version of the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, who founded Christian Science.

This Lesson-Sermon may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly (available in the Reading Room or as a subscription, below). This month's weekly topics are at right.  The full list of topics for the year is below.

A complete Order of Service may be found below.

The Christian Science Pastor
