Come as you are!

Our Christian Science church holds two weekly services—one on Sunday morning and one on Wednesday evening. Everyone is welcome! Child care is provided at all services and Sunday School convenes at the same time as the Sunday morning service.

    Sunday morning service (and Sunday School): 10:00 – 11:00am
    Wednesday testimony meeting: 7:30 – 8:30pm
    We also have a special Thanksgiving Day service on Thanksgiving morning at 10:00am.

Sunday morning service

SunService

The Sunday service has music, readings, hymns, and prayer. The heart of it is a Bible lesson read by two Readers with citations from the King James Bible and Science and Health. The topic and citations are published in the Christian Science Quarterly which you can buy at any Christian Science Reading Room. We call this our Lesson-Sermon because you can study the readings as a lesson during the week and then hear them read as a sermon on Sunday.

Wednesday evening meeting

WedService

Wednesday evening meetings are similar to Sunday, but a bit less formal. The first half consists of readings the First Reader has put together specifically for that church service (from the same two books, we call them our “Pastor”). And the second half is open to testimonies from the congregation. Anyone in the audience can stand up and share a testimony of healing, or an insight or remark relating to their study of Christian Science. Sometimes there are quiet patches and sometimes you can’t get a word in edgewise.

I love Christian Science because it teaches me that I never have to be afraid. Of anything.

—Linda K., Sleepy Hollow

Christian Science works. It heals. It renovates. It corrects. It inspires. It gives me inner peace when I most need it. And it explains God.

Nate O., Cortlandt Manor

I am a Christian Scientist because I have been in other churches and I believe Christian Science is the truth. I love it because it is comforting and it heals.

Joan M., Ossining

I love Christian Science because it has healed so many problems, ever since childhood. Employment, physical injury, and relationship problems have been healed. I am alive because of Christian Science.

John S., Ossining

Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. —Matthew 7:7
