"...the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."

-John 14:26 

"Whatever inspires with wisdom, Truth, or Love — be it song, sermon, or Science — blesses the human family with crumbs of comfort from Christ’s table, feeding the hungry and giving living waters to the thirsty."

-Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p. 234

Reading Room 

Our church provides a Reading Room for the community.


It is a Christian Science library and book store with numerous items to study, borrow, or purchase, including The Holy Bible, The Christian Science Journal, Sentinel, and Herald, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, along with other inspiring materials. You may also read or purchase The Christian Science Monitor, an eight-time Pulitzer Prize winning weekly newspaper.


The Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy all can be researched using the Concord Works web-based software available in the Reading Room. A librarian is there and happy to assist with research, purchases or questions about Christian Science.


Our Reading Room is open: 

Tuesday 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm, Friday & Saturday 11 am - 2 pm, 

and 15 minutes after the service.
