We extend a warm welcome to all those searching for a more spiritual concept of life and a more practical Christianity. Our church, a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, strives to bless the community by sharing a clear understanding of the healing principle taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus.
In that endeavor, we have a Sunday service and Sunday School, Wednesday Testimony meeting, lectures on Christian Science, and a Christian Science Reading Room. All of these activities are open to the public.
The Bible Lesson Sermon for the week beginning November 23, consists of readings from the Bible and from the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and explores the topic: "ANCIENT AND MODERN NECROMANCY, alias MESMERISM AND HYPNOTISM, DENOUNCED." The sermon begins with this citation from the King James Bible: "The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light." [Romans 12:13] This same lesson sermon will be read in all Christian Science churches throughout the world on Sunday, November 29. You may read the week's lesson at the Reading Room located in the church building. Click on the Reading Room tab above for hours of operation.
Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, said in a 1901 address to church members: "The Word of God is a powerful preacher, and it is not too spiritual to be practical, nor too transcendental to be heard and understood."
On Thursday, November 26, this church will hold a special Thanksgiving Day service at 10:30am. The sermon consists of readings from the Bible and Science and Health, the Lord's Prayer, hymns and an opportunity for the congregation to share their gratitude. Childcare will be provided. You can also read or purchase a copy of the sermon at the Christian Science Reading Room located in the church. Please see the Reading Room tab for hours and other information.
