Sunday services are conducted by two Readers, elected by and from the membership. The Lesson-Sermon is made up of passages from the Bible and correlative selections from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The references for the Lesson-Sermon are listed in the Christian Science Quarterly so that the lesson may be studied during the week preceding the Sunday service. These booklets are available for purchase at the Christian Science Reading Room.

Young people under the age of 20 are welcome to attend Sunday School held at the same time as the Sunday church service. Students are taught, and discuss the healing truths of the Bible and how they can apply them in their daily lives.

A nursery is also available for infants and toddlers not yet ready for Sunday School.

Join us each Wednesday evening for a Testimony meeting. At these meetings the First Reader provides a short reading and then the congregation is invited to share how they have overcome physical and other challenges, including those of unemployment, housing, and personal relationships, through prayer as taught in Christian Science.

Child care is available during the Wednesday evening meetings.
