A different kind of pastor…

    • The Christian Science Sunday Bible Lesson-Sermon is not preached by a traditional ordained pastor but read from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy
    • Two readers are elected from the church membership to serve as readers on a rotating basis. One reads citations from the Bible, and the other reader reads correlative citations from Science and Health.
    • The Bible citations are selected from both the Old and New Testaments

Sunday service order—similar to other Protestant services:

    • Opening hymn
    • Scriptural selection
    • Silent prayer followed by the Lord’s Prayer
    • Hymn
    • Brief announcements
    • Musical solo
    • Bible Lesson-Sermon (the largest part of the service)
    • Hymn
    • Reading of the “scientific statement of being” from the Christian Science textbook
    • Reading of I John 3:1-3
    • Benediction read from the Bible

Wednesday testimony meeting order…

    • Hymn
    • Reading of citations from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
    • Silent prayer followed by the Lord’s Prayer
    • Hymn
    • Voluntary remarks by anyone present about how Christ has touched their daily lives in some way

Wednesday night testimony meetings are an opportunity for all participating to share insights and express gratitude for healings they have experienced through their growing understanding of Christian Science.
