Sunday Bible Sermon
The 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.
