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 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.

If you have any questions about the church services or about Christian Science, please feel free to call our church (775-829-8117) or email us.


Join us for these Wednesday evening events at the church

Every Wednesday night we hold a testimony meeting for the public from 7:30 to 8:30 pm in our church. All are welcome to come and hear readings on a timely topic from the Bible and from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, sing hymns, listen to testimonies from members of the congregation and share in giving thanks to God.

In addition:

Bible Study: On the first and third Wednesday of every month, we gather at 6 p.m. for Bible Study before our Wednesday evening meetings. All are welcome to these informal gatherings to share our love of the Bible. Our next meeting is Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 6:00 pm at the church. We’ll focus on Luke, chapters 9 and 10.

Bible Lesson Study: On the last Wednesday of each month, we have an hour study of that week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson. Our next lesson study meeting will be on Feb. 26 from 6 to 7 pm in the Reading Room. The Bible lesson that week is on the subject of “Christ Jesus.”

Online Mother Church Testimony Meeting: On the first, second and third Wednesdays of each month, we will play the recorded meeting of the Mother Church testimony meeting for that week between 5:30 and 7:00 pm.

All are welcome!

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 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.

New! Now you can call in to hear our Wednesday night testimony meeting

Would you like to hear our Wednesday evening service from 7:30 to 8:30 pm but can’t attend the meeting in person? We’d love to have you join us by conference call. Just call:
When prompted for an access code, enter:
At that point you will be connected so you can hear the service. Once you are connected, please press *6 to mute your phone to prevent noises around you disturbing other listeners.

Please note that should you join us while we are singing, you won’t be able to hear the music. We are working on a solution for that; in the meantime just wait and you’ll be able to hear the readings and the testimonies. If you join the meeting after 8 pm you may hear silence until someone speaks because the last half of our meeting is reserved for participants to share their healing experiences and ideas. We invite you to listen and rejoice with us.

If you have any difficulties in accessing our broadcast of the Wednesday evening meetings, please call the church at 775-829-8117 or email dmensing@gmail.com.
