“Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; …And they said, let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.”
In 1979, a small group of individuals dedicated to the teachings of Christian Science began to hold church services on Canton Street in Historic Roswell. This became the Christian Science Society, Roswell, Georgia, in January, 1980. Becoming a society is the first step toward becoming a branch of The Mother Church in Boston.
In 1985, we fulfilled the requirements to become a full-fledged branch of The Mother Church. In March of 1990 we completed our current edifice at 10920 Houze Road.
THE MOTHER CHURCH
First Church of Christ, Scientist, Roswell Georgia is a loyal branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston Massachusetts, also known as The Mother Church…”designed to be built on the Rock, Christ; even the understanding and demonstration of divine Truth, Life, and Love, healing and saving the world from sin and death; thus to reflect in some degree the Church Universal and Triumphant” (Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy).
