Our Sunday morning service is held by teleconference from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. The order of services includes a warm greeting, singing, prayer and a sermon based on the Weekly Bible Lesson, all following the guidelines of The Manual of The Mother Church. The Weekly Bible Lesson is read by two lay readers. The two readers are volunteers from among our members and are members of The Mother Church. The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, serve as our pastor and guide.
Wednesday Evening Testimony Meeting
We come together each week on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm (also by teleconference) to hear brief readings composed of citations from the Bible and Science and Health. The readings are oriented to the occasion and the needs of the community. The major portion of the meeting is open to the group both at the meeting and those dialing in via teleconference. During this time individuals share insights and healings they have had as a result of applying the teachings of Christ Jesus, as understood in Christian Science.

Readers at our Services
Our members share the privilege of reading at both the Sunday service and the Wednesday evening meeting. Any member of The Mother Church is eligible to read. We have found that the sharing of this opportunity on a weekly basis has blessed each of us. We are guided in the responsibilities of reading by the requirements in The By-Laws of The Mother Church, Article III, Sections 1 through 7.
Weekly Bible Lesson
Every day, Christian Scientists around the world read and study the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson. This lesson instructs, inspires, and heals. It is also the basis of our Sunday church service.
The Bible Lesson consists of carefully selected passages from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Find out for yourself how daily spiritual study can have a positive healing impact in your life.
The Wednesday meeting from The Mother Church in Boston is available online live starting at 2:00 PM Eastern Time each Wednesday, and is available for 24 hours afterwards. You can also participate in the Church lobby informal chat after the service.
