Christian Science Activities
Connect to Christian Science Church Services
Each of the two dozen-plus Christian Science branch churches in the Washington Metro area offer regular services and activities every week throughout the year.
Sunday Worship Services
Sunday services include singing hymns and praying together the Lord’s Prayer. The main part of the service is the reading of the weekly Bible Lesson Sermon which is comprised of passages from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Each week, the Bible Lesson-Sermon focuses on a specific topic which is studied all week by students of Christian Science. That same topic is then read aloud by local church members (readers) in Christian Science services around the world.
Wednesday Testimony Meetings
Wednesday Testimony Meetings are informal midweek services that also include hymns and passages read from the Bible and Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures. Following the readings, the second half of the meeting is open to anyone for sharing gratitude and experiences of healing through their growing understanding of the truths learned in studying Christian Science.
Sunday School and Youth Activities
Christian Science Sunday Schools welcome children and young adults up to age 20 and Sunday School teachers actively invite students’ questions. Together students and teachers explore the Bible’s wisdom and stories from Old and New Testaments. Students learn about timeless principles and how to apply these healing truths to their daily lives.
