Sunday Bible Sermon

Sunday ServiceThe Sunday Bible Lesson Sermon is designed to bring you inspiring ideas and healing truths which bring peace, joy, strength, and comfort.

The founder of our church, Mary Baker Eddy, appointed the Bible and her textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, as the Pastor of our church. So the centerpiece of the Sunday service is the Bible Lesson Sermon read from these two books.

The service is conducted by two readers who are selected from our membership and are members of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts.

Singing hymnsOver the years, people have found healing of physical and mental ills, relationship issues, unemployment, financial concerns, and school problems through regular study of each week’s Bible Lesson. As you study the passages from the Bible, together with insights from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, you will find answers to your needs.

Our PastorThere are 26 Bible Lesson subjects. A new lesson is developed and published for each subject twice a year and shared worldwide as the focus of that week’s Sunday sermon. These Lessons are available for individual study throughout the week prior to being read as the sermon on Sundays in Churches of Christ, Scientist, worldwide. Each Lesson includes selections from the Bible with correlated references from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Following each lesson’s Golden Text and Responsive Reading, the sections develop different aspect of the subject. Bible verses are read first in each section, followed by passages from Science and Health, which reveal the spiritual meaning of the Scriptures.
