The Highlands Society of Christian Scientists conducts services on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.  from June to October. Testimonial meetings on spiritual healing are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. during the season. The reading room, also in the church edifice, is open prior to each service or meeting.

Mary Baker Eddy founded the Church of Christ, Scientist in 1879 “to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing.” (Church Manual, page 17). Mrs. Eddy grew up in the Congregational church in New England and loved and revered the life and teachings of Christ Jesus. She founded a church so that his healing works would be more universally understood and practiced.

Many people attending a Christian Science church service for the first time will recognize many familiar elements—hymns, prayer, readings from the Bible, a warm sense of fellowship. One unique feature is that we don’t have personal preachers or pastors conducting the services. Instead, two lay readers conduct services that are based on Bible Lessons published in The Christian Science Quarterly. These lessons are made up of passages from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (written by Mary Baker Eddy) and address such topics as God, Christ Jesus, etc. There is a simplicity to the services that is very much in keeping with the earlier Christian gatherings where love and healing were at the heart of worship.

Whatever the illness, disability or problem, there’s a specific answer that can bring healing—not just coping or managing, but health and wholeness. Healing is a natural effect of the spiritual transformation that comes with the study of Christian Science.

Depression, loneliness, illness, lack?

Members have no restraints or church laws forbidding them to seek medical help if they so choose but many who have experienced spiritual healings choose to work out their challenges with metaphysics. Attend one of our services and bring your questions.
