As in many religious traditions, the Christian Science Sunday service includes music and song, group and individual prayer, and a sermon. But otherwise, it is quite unique.

First of all the sermon is read by two members of the congregation, called Readers. There’s no priest or individual who acts as pastor.

But what’s really different is that on any given Sunday, Christian Science churches and societies around the world read the same sermon, which is about half an hour long.

And Christian Scientists – around the world – have been reading and praying with the ideas in that week's Bible-Lesson in the days leading up to the service. They don't come to discuss the sermon but to testify with their hearts and lives to the power and grace of divine Love, God.

Anyone can read the weekly Lesson during the week. Click here for more information online.

The sermon is made up of a selection of passages from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. There are 26 topics – such as Love, Truth, Mind, and Is the Universe including Man evolved by Atomic Force? (note: you might be surprised at the answer) – that repeat twice a year, and an annual Thanksgiving lesson. Though topics reprise, the selections are different each time so that no two sermons are alike.

Come for a visit. Ask questions. Share your story. We would love to meet you!

“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock."

Christ Jesus (The Message)
