Sunday School Invitation!
Would you like your children to learn about God, The Bible and the works of Jesus? Our Sunday School teaches young people up to the age of 20 about God’s great love for them, His care and protection in their lives, and their own inherent goodness. Families do not need to be Christian Scientists for their children to attend.
Sunday School takes place on Sunday mornings at 10:00AM and lasts an hour. The lessons are straight from the Bible and center on the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, and the weekly Bible Lesson from the Pastor: The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Age-appropriate games, stories, discussions, and projects open up the Bible’s inspired meaning. key tools? Independent thought, moral courage, joy, and spiritual growth. Classes are led by dedicated and caring church members.
We look forward to welcoming the whole family!

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!
