SUBJECT:  The Universal Principle of Salvation

The meeting begins with a hymn sung by all, then inspirational readings from the Bible and textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy are read by the Reader, The Lord’s Prayer is prayed and a hymn is sung followed by those present who would like to share how prayer has helped heal challenges in their lives.  We end the meeting with a hymn.


 At our SUNDAY SERVICE, the Sermon is read on the topic stated below from the Bible and corroborating passages from the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The term, Christian Science, is used throughout the textbook, but there was no organized church at that time. It is used to designate the ‘spiritual laws of God applied to man’ -not an organized church formed later.
