And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children. – Isaiah
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew
To my sense the Sermon on the Mount, read each Sunday without comment and obeyed throughout the week, would be enough for Christian practice. – Mary Baker Eddy
Who may attend?
Any child who is interested in learning more about the Bible. The youngest must be able to be still and listen in a class setting. Instruction is available for students up to the age of 20.
Do you have to be a Christian Scientist?
All are welcome.
What do you teach in class?
Our teachers are guided by the Church Manual by Mary Baker Eddy:
- Teaching the Children. Sect. 2. The Sabbath School children shall be taught the Scriptures, and they shall be instructed according to their understanding or ability to grasp the simpler meanings of the divine Principle that they are taught.
- Subject for Lessons. Sect. 3. The first lessons of the children should be the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:3–17), the Lord’s Prayer (Matt. 6:9–13), and its Spiritual Interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy, Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:3–12). The next lessons consist of such questions and answers as are adapted to a juvenile class, and may be found in the Christian Science Quarterly Lessons, read in Church services.

“Sunday school …gives me inspiring thoughts towards my day and towards healing.” – Emma (aged 13)
“I like being in an environment where the focus is 100% concentrated on learning about God.” – Will (high school)
” (Sunday school) helps me learn about Christian Science so I can use it in praying about school and sports.” – Jack (high school)
