Outreach

Christian Science Lectures

What an opportunity. Public talks (Lectures) on Christian Science, given by members of The Christian Science Board of Lectureship, are excellent opportunities for both newcomers and veteran Christian Scientists alike to learn more about and to progress in the practice of Christian Science. They are prepared not only to talk about the healing aspect of this Science but also how it affects every other area of life. These Christian Science Lectures are usually free (sponsored by local Christian Science branch churches) and are open to the public.

For information about Christian Science lectures and lecturers, please refer to http://christianscience.com/lectures/.

To find upcoming lectures anywhere, you may refer to http://members.christianscience.com/lecture-schedule/, and you may stay apprised of upcoming lectures in Yorba Linda and in its proximity by referring periodically to this website’s Home page.

 

Media

The Christian Science Sentinel Radio Edition is a weekly radio program broadcast around the world and released monthly on CD. It deals with the same issues as the Christian Science Sentinel magazine, via interviews and discussions.

Institutional Services

Regionally, local committees provide Christian Science chaplains and workers to offer healing and regenerating truths in government-sponsored institutions such as prisons, reformatories, work camps, jails, mental hospitals, juvenile facilities, and Department of Veterans Affairs facilities in California.

For information about this healing ministry in Orange County, please refer to the Christian Science Committee on Institutional Work in Orange County (www.csciwoc.org/).

Literature Rack

For off-hour seekers for Truth, our Christian Science Reading Room includes a literature rack mounted just outside the entrance stocked with past issues of the “Christian Science Journal”, “Christian Science Sentinel”, “Herald of Christian Science”, and/or “The Christian Science Monitor” free for the taking. The literature rack also includes invitations to other upcoming events such as Christian Science Lectures and online web casts.

Main Street Winter Festival

Annually Yorba Linda church sets up a cart on Main Street for the annual Main Street Winter Festival in December. Church members manning the cart are available to answer questions about Christian Science, offer free samples of the “Christian Science Monitor”, and provide treats for children such as cookies and printouts of the 10 Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. Come check it out next December.

Anaheim Interfaith Shelter

Our church lends a helping hand to Anaheim Interfaith Shelter: a non-profit home for up to ten families in need. Families are given 9 to 12 months of help and support to get back on their feet and be productive citizens and capable of caring for their children. This organization is not connected with Christian Science; however, our church membership supports this organization as an outreach program. We collect and deliver non-perishable food and supplies generally every other month. (http://www.aishalcyon.org/)

If you wish to participate in this outreach program, please call the Christian Science Reading Room at 714-777-2391 Mon.-Fri. 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. or Wed. 5:30-7:15 p.m.
