More About Our Group
In 2004, a small group of dedicated Christian Scientists felt impelled to reach out to others in a more inclusive way. Years of tradition had restricted our vision of the unlimited opportunities to bless our community. We believed that more effective ways could be found to be a part of the community and respond to its needs more fully. While following all the requirements of a branch church of the Mother Church, and moving into the Girl Scout Center, we have been able to focus our efforts on the spiritual mission of the church, which is to heal and bless all mankind. Our informal setting has contributed toward creating a greater sense of love and connection with each other.
