Local Christian Science

What is this talk about? 
Discovery is what has empowered progress throughout human history, be it through new inventions or new views of fundamental human rights. Spiritual discovery is about stripping away surface-level appearances in order to see our lives and the world through the nature of an all-good God that is Life and Love itself. This lecture is about how we find real change and healing through new views of people, power, and prayer.

What is Christian Science?
What is Christian Science? An approach to Christianity based on the idea that the divine truth and love which shone through Jesus’ life and works is timeless, universal, and understandable, and so can be experienced through healing in our lives today.

BIBLE STUDY: All are invited to join our group, which will meet next via Zoom on Thursday Feb. 17 at 7 pm.

Focus:  Gospel of John chapters 10 to 12. We will be finishing what is called the Book of Signs (Chapters 2-12), which includes the story of Lazarus. In John’s gospel we always see the light of truth shines in the darkness – and darkness is powerless to overcome it. 

 

For information on how to join by phone or computer, see the “services” tab on this website. The connection used for the church service will also work for Bible study.  Study tools: In addition to online Bible research websites, you can buy or study various Bible translations or reference books at our Christian Science Reading Room in downtown Rockville. The translations are available in English and other languages.
