Our church is a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879 "...to commemorate the words and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing."      
        Manual of The Mother Church,
                                          by Mary Baker Eddy                     

Each Sunday, at 10 AM, two lay readers, a First and Second Reader (who are elected from the membership) read a Lesson-Sermon consisting of selections from our Pastor, the King James Version of the Bible and the Christian Science Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  This Lesson, which is contained in the Christian Science Quarterly, is studied daily during the preceding week by students of Christian Science.

Wednesday Evening Testimony Meetings, at 7:00 PM, begin with specially selected readings from the Bible and Science and Health.  Testimonies by members of the congregation follow, telling how the study of Christian Science heals, uplifts, inspires, and guides them through a better understanding of God and one's relationship with Him.
