God's allness and great love for all His creation, coupled with our love for Him, each other, and ourselves—
that's what the Christian Science Bible Lessons are all about. At these services you will hear about God's deep love for each of us, His children. The sermon is from the Bible Lesson/Sermon, read throughout the week by Christian Scientists, around the world, which allows people to heal, comfort, reform, and even transform themselves. 
Please come to our Sunday Services to hear the Word and how to apply it to your daily life.

You are also invited to come to our Wednesday Evening Testimonial Meeting where, following readings from the Holy Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, attendees give their experiences, including healings,  received through their study of the Bible and using Christian Science teachings.

The Holy Bible, KJV

1. Ps. 36:7–9 (to :)

How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow

of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them

drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life:

2. Gen. 15:1 the

... the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

3. Gen. 17:1–5, 15–17, 19 (to :)

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee,

and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall

her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said

in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety

years old, bear?
And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac:

4. Gen. 18:10 I, 11, 13, 14

... I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken

in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which

am old? Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the

time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

5. Gen. 21:1–3

And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

6. Lam. 3:22, 23 (to :)

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new

every morning:

7. Josh. 14:6–11 (to 2nd ,), 13

Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said

unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the Lord said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee

in Kadesh–barnea. Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh–barnea

to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart. Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the Lord my God. And Moses

sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the Lord my God. And now, behold, the Lord hath

kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the Lord spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now,

And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.

8. Prov. 4:10–13

Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee in the

way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy

life.

9. Eph. 4:17, 18, 20–24

This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity

of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the

ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the

truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which

after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

10. II Cor. 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

11. Rev. 21:1–5 (to 1st .)

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and

there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be

no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. ...

 

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy

1. SH 468:26–29 Life
Life is divine Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit. Life is without beginning and without end.

Eternity, not time, expresses the thought of Life, and time is no part of eternity.

2. SH 469:4–5 2nd Life (to 1st .)

Life is not limited.

3. SH 244:23–28

Man in Science is neither young nor old. He has neither birth nor death. He is not a beast, a vegetable, nor

a migratory mind. He does not pass from matter to Mind, from the mortal to the immortal, from evil to

good, or from good to evil. Such admissions cast us headlong into darkness and dogma.

4. SH 245:1–17, 21–31

The error of thinking that we are growing old, and the benefits of destroying that illusion, are illustrated in a sketch from the history of an English woman, published in the London medical magazine called The Lancet.

Disappointed in love in her early years, she became insane and lost all account of time. Believing that she

was still living in the same hour which parted her from her lover, taking no note of years, she stood daily before the window watching for her lover's coming. In this mental state she remained young. Having no consciousness of time, she literally grew no older. Some American travellers saw her when she was

seventy-four, and supposed her to be a young woman. She had no care-lined face, no wrinkles nor gray

hair, but youth sat gently on cheek and brow. Asked to guess her age, those unacquainted with her history conjectured that she must be under twenty.

Years had not made her old, because she had taken no cognizance of passing time nor thought of herself a

s growing old. The bodily results of her belief that she was young manifested the influence of such a belief. She could not age while believing herself young, for the mental state governed the physical.

Impossibilities never occur. One instance like the foregoing proves it possible to be young at seventy-four;

and the primary of that illustration makes it plain that decrepitude is not according to law, nor is it a

necessity of nature, but an illusion.

5. SH 246:10–31

The measurement of life by solar years robs youth and gives ugliness to age. The radiant sun of virtue and truth coexists with being. Manhood is its eternal noon, undimmed by a declining sun. As the physical and material, the transient sense of beauty fades, the radiance of Spirit should dawn upon the enraptured sense with bright and imperishable glories.

Never record ages. Chronological data are no part of the vast forever. Time-tables of birth and death are so many conspiracies against manhood and womanhood. Except for the error of measuring and limiting all

that is good and beautiful, man would enjoy more than threescore years and ten and still maintain his vigor, freshness, and promise. Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness.

Life is eternal. We should find this out, and begin the demonstration thereof. Life and goodness are

immortal. Let us then shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and continuity, rather than

into age and blight.

6. SH 247:3, 13

I have seen age regain two of the elements it had lost, sight and teeth. A woman of eighty-five, whom I

knew, had a return of sight. Another woman at ninety had new teeth, incisors, cuspids, bicuspids, and one molar. One man at sixty had retained his full set of upper and lower teeth without a decaying cavity.

Immortality , exempt from age or decay, has a glory of its own, — the radiance of Soul. Immortal men and women are models of spiritual sense, drawn by perfect Mind and reflecting those higher conceptions of loveliness which transcend all material sense.

7. SH 519:14–16

Mortals can never know the infinite, until they throw off the old man and reach the spiritual image and likeness.

8. SH 201:7–9

We cannot build safely on false foundations. Truth makes a new creature, in whom old things pass away

and “all things are become new.”

9. SH 323:32–4

Willingness to become as a little child and to leave the old for the new, renders thought receptive of the advanced idea. Gladness to leave the false landmarks and joy to see them disappear, — this disposition

helps to precipitate the ultimate harmony.

10. SH 91:1–8

The Revelator tells us of “a new heaven and a new earth.” Have you ever pictured this heaven and earth, inhabited by beings under the control of supreme wisdom?

Let us rid ourselves of the belief that man is separated from God, and obey only the divine Principle, Life and Love. Here is the great point of departure for all true spiritual growth.

11. SH 536:1

In the Apocalypse it is written: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” In St. John's vision, heaven and earth stand for

spiritual ideas, and the sea, as a symbol of tempest-tossed human concepts advancing and receding, is represented as having passed away. The divine understanding reigns, is all, and there is no other consciousness.

12. SH 572:23

The Revelator had not yet passed the transitional stage in human experience called death, but he already

saw a new heaven and a new earth. Through what sense came this vision to St. John? Not through the material visual organs for seeing, for optics are inadequate to take in so wonderful a scene. Were this new heaven and new earth terrestrial or celestial, material or spiritual? They could not be the former, for the human sense of space is unable to grasp such a view. The Revelator was on our plane of existence, while

yet beholding what the eye cannot see, — that which is invisible to the uninspired thought. This testimony

of Holy Writ sustains the fact in Science, that the heavens and earth to one human consciousness, that consciousness which God bestows, are spiritual, while to another, the unillumined human mind, the vision

is material. This shows unmistakably that what the human mind terms matter and spirit indicates states

and stages of consciousness.

13. SH 573:13

Accompanying this scientific consciousness was another revelation, even the declaration from heaven, supreme harmony, that God, the divine Principle of harmony, is ever with men, and they are His people.

Thus man was no longer regarded as a miserable sinner, but as the blessed child of God. Why? Because

St. John's corporeal sense of the heavens and earth had vanished, and in place of this false sense was the spiritual sense, the subjective state by which he could see the new heaven and new earth, which involve the spiritual idea and consciousness of reality. This is Scriptural authority for concluding that such a recognition

of being is, and has been, possible to men in this present state of existence, — that we can become

conscious, here and now, of a cessation of death, sorrow, and pain. This is indeed a foretaste of absolute Christian Science. Take heart, dear sufferer, for this reality of being will surely appear sometime and in

some way. There will be no more pain, and all tears will be wiped away. When you read this, remember

Jesus' words, “The kingdom of God is within you.” This spiritual consciousness is therefore a present possibility.
