Listen to a talk about everyone’s worth and purpose

Everyone has a purpose. Everyone is needed.

You are invited to learn how our relationship with God, infinite Love, gives us permanent worth and purpose.

Christian Science is deeply rooted in the Bible and especially in the words and works of Christ Jesus. This Christian Science lecture shows why our unbreakable connection to God gives us health and well-being. Getting even a little better sense of our connection to God’s goodness lifts us from dark times to healing and progress. Given by James Shepherd, C.S. and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, Reno, Nevada.

This talk was given on Tuesday, June 8. You can watch a recording of the talk here:

“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.”

Listen to Science and Health online or read it online on or call our church and we would be happy to mail you a complimentary copy.

Come to a Wednesday evening meeting about Christian healing

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Reno

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.

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.
