Mary Baker Eddy ordained the Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Pastor over The Mother Church…they will continue to preach for this Church and the world.” (see Church Manual by M.B.Eddy)
When you visit us you will see two lay Readers at the podium. The First Reader in Christian Science churches shall read from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures; and the Second Readers shall read the Bible texts.
“The canonical writings, together with the word of our text-book, corroborating and explaining the Bible texts in their spiritual import and application to all ages, past, present, and future—constitute a sermon undivorced from truth, uncontaminated and unfettered by human hypotheses, and divinely authorized.”
Sunday: 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Bible study is an important component in our practice of Christianity. The Bible Lessons published in the Christian Science Quarterly are an important component of this study. Each week brings a new lesson consisting of correlated passages from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This Bible Lesson is the sermon at our Sunday Services.
