During the winter we may opt to move a Sunday or Wednesday service from in-person to online. We will use “Zoom from Home” when driving conditions are particularly hazardous.
This means there would be no “in person” service that particular day/night, and we would have a zoom service, (including video) with readers and congregation each at their own homes.
We will send an email if we decide to use this option, so please check your email regularly, or the Reading Room Facebook page, to get up to date information on this.
If you would like to be added to our “zoom” email list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you on the list.
All of our in person services are also available on zoom, as audio only broadcasts.
The replays for the 2022 Annual Meeting and related weekend events are now available in English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish: Watch the Annual Meeting and Sunday event replays.
We are very pleased to announce that in-person services are being held at our church on Sundays at 10 am and Wednesdays at 7:30 pm. All are welcome to attend these uplifting one-hour services. You can listen quietly to the music and readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, sing hymns and feel the tranquility of prayer. We are located at 795 W. Peckham Lane in Reno and have plenty of parking.
We will continue to provide the audio portion of our services on Zoom. Please feel free to join us online or in-person. If you would like to hear our services live via Zoom on phone or computer, please email us at email@example.com and we’ll send you the Zoom link.

“HEAL THE SICK…” These words of Christ Jesus encircling the Cross and Crown seal on this book are a sweet promise that we all possess the ability to heal ourselves, our families, our world.
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures explains the spiritual teachings of the Bible, revealing the divine Science that, when understood, brings healing to all aspects of our lives and the world.
For over 135 years, readers have testified that this book has given them a spiritual sense of the Bible and their permanent relationship to God, which resulted in physical healing and spiritual uplift. The last one hundred pages of this book are letters from just a few of those readers. One such letter notes that in reading this book, “I have found a God whom I can love and worship with my whole heart, and I now read my Bible with interest and understanding. I was healed of very bad rheumatism simply by reading Science and Health.”

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 prayer-based healing experiences.
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.
We 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 all humanity. We welcome your children in our Sunday School and invite you to 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, 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 hold Sunday School for children up to the age of 20 at the same time as our Sunday service (10 am), and child care is available 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.
