Join us in the Reading Room

Winter-Church2Our Reading Room provides a calm and quiet place to read and pray for all who seek a few moments of peace. We’re open Mondays and Fridays, 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm, and Wednesdays 12:00 to 7:30 pm, up until the time of our Wednesday evening service. The Reading Room is also open briefly after our Sunday service. All are welcome to visit, read, pray and purchase literature about Christian Science. An attendant is always happy to answer questions.

On Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 6 to 7 pm, we will listen to a webinar on Evolutions of Christian Science in Scholarly Perspective. This webinar is an excerpt of talks given by three scholars who presented at a conference in April in Antwerp, Belgium, on “The Evolutions of Christian Science in Scholarly Perspective.”  The talks focus on the importance of new scholarship about Christian Science (from the Mary Baker Eddy Library). All are welcome.


Welcome to the Christian Science church in Reno


IMG_1204We hope you’ll visit one of our services — held every Sunday at 10 am and every Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm — to join us in worshipping God and loving mankind. You can bring your children to Sunday School and visit our Reading Room. All are welcome to our church.

The purpose of the Christian Science church is to practice and support Christian healing, spiritual discovery and unselfed love. Christian Science, as discovered by Mary Baker Eddy, refers to the universal, practical system of spiritual, prayer-based healing, available and accessible to everyone. It is based on Christ Jesus’s teachings and starts with the premise that God is Love.

Our services last for an hour and all are welcome. We have Sunday School for children up to the age of 20 at the same time as our Sunday service (10 am), and child care at all our services.

We are located at the corner of West Peckham and Warren Way. We look forward to your visit! (Our address is 795 West Peckham Lane, Reno, NV 89509)

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Reno, Nevada is one of the world-wide branches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA, founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1879.

Come to a Wednesday evening meeting about Christian healing

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Reno

All are welcome to our church home on Peckham Lane in Reno, Nevada.

Would you like to hear an example of a healing in Christian Science?
Every Wednesday evening at 7:30 we hold meetings where members and visitors can share their healing experiences through Christian prayer.

The meetings start with a 20-minute reading from The Holy Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. We sing hymns and then the congregation has time to share insights and healings they’ve had through the application of Christian Science.

Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings. They last one hour and we provide childcare in our nursery.

Any questions? Call our Church and Reading Room at 775-829-8117.
