HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The below lines were written extemporaneously by Mrs. Eddy on New Year’s morning. The members of her household were with her at the time, and it was gratifying to them, as it will be to the field, to see in her spiritualized thought and mental vigor a symbol of the glad New Year on which we have just entered. – Editor Sentinel My.354:14-4
O blessings infinite!
O glad New Year!
Sweet sign and substance
Of God’s presence here.
Give us not only angels’ songs,
But Science vast, to which belongs
The tongue of angels
And the song of songs.
Mary Baker Eddy

Have you ever wished for a break in the middle of the day for quiet thoughts and reflection? Our Christian Science Reading Room is a place to provide you with spiritual renewal in the middle of your day and is our gift to our community! It is open from 10:00AM – 2:00PM, Monday through Saturday.
There you will find computers offering a search tool for Bible references as well as spiritual study materials. The Monitor is also available both in the weekly printed version and the daily emailed version. And of course, there is access to all Christian Science publications and the availability to read, study, or purchase the weekly Bible Lesson.
As the Reading Room is also a bookstore, purchases are available of any literature found in the Reading Room. Did you know that our Christian Science Publishing Society offers fifteen books for children? Our Reading Room stocks all of them and also stocks cards for children!
We invite the public to visit/study/read/purchase any time. Parking is easy. The parking lot behind the businesses on the South side of 4th Ave. charges when you leave so you don’t have to predetermine your length of stay. Enter the parking lot from San Mateo Drive. We hope to see you soon!
The public is warmly invited to join us for each Sunday Service where you will join us with singing and scriptural readings along with a sermon. Our church founder opened her textbook stating “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings.” We trust that you will be blessed by our services.
