Reading Room

IMG_1210 (2)Our Christian Science Reading Room is a quiet place for anyone to pray, study in our reference library, borrow literature or learn about Christian Science. We welcome visitors to drop by and browse, ask questions or to stay and read for as long as they would like.

We also invite anyone to join us for listening to services and recordings of services and activities from First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston.

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, before our own local branch church service.

On the last Wednesday of each month, we have an hour study of that week’s Christian Science Bible Lesson. This week our study meeting will be on Wed., Jan 29 from 6 to 7 pm in the Reading Room. The Bible lesson this week is on the subject of “Truth.”

A Librarian’s Prayer
Let this place be a haven
for all those seeking
spiritual uplift and peace.

Let this place be an oasis
for all those hungering
and thirsting after Truth.

Let my thought be so full of love
for God and all mankind
that it reaches through
glass and wood and screen

To embrace all who pass;
To embrace with love all those
Who feel the need of drawing closer to God,
And especially

By Mary S. Henderson

Sunday School

IMG_1212Do you want your child to know more about God?

Would you like the assurance that your child’s education includes the Bible? Enroll them in our Sunday School. We teach children about the Bible, including the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, Biblical characters from the Old and New Testament, and how Christian Science is made practical in everyday lives.

Our Sunday School is open to all children up the age of 20 and is held at the same time as our Sunday church services (10 to 11 am).  The Sunday School service opens with a hymn and prayer, and then children meet with a teacher in groups arranged by age.

ALL are welcome!

Child Care

Children too young to attend Sunday School or our services are cared for in our Children’s Room while you are attending the Sunday morning services, the Wednesday evening meetings, and our lectures.
