First Church of Christ, Scientist Berwyn, PA
Open the door and come on in. Take a few minutes to get to know our church.
Here you’re sure to find a place for each member of your family – whether you are attending our Sunday service or Wednesday evening meeting, visiting our Reading Room, or bringing your children to our Sunday School or child care.
We’d love to have you join us.
At our church services you will hear music, sing hymns, and join the congregation in praying the Lord’s Prayer.
The cornerstone of our service is the reading of our sermon, a lesson read from our Pastor – the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
Wednesday Evening Meetings
Right in the midst of a busy week is a spiritual oasis of regeneration and healing. Join us at our Wednesday evening testimony meetings, held every week.
Following inspired readings on relevant topics, those in attendance are invited to share testimonies of healing and gratitude gained through the study and practice of Christian Science healing, experiences, and remarks on Christian Science.
Sunday school is held every Sunday morning for children and teenagers.
If you were a fly on the wall of our Christian Science Sunday School …. what would you see and hear? There would be a lot of chatter and laughter, smiles and thoughtful contemplation. You might see the youngest classes learning Bible stories and basic concepts about God and His love for them. In older classes you might find students and teachers huddled over the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures as they expand their understanding of God and the words and works of Christ Jesus.
The more advanced classes have thoughtful discussions about Christian Science and how to practice its healing truths in their lives. All students are taught the Commandments and Beatitudes, the Lord’s Prayer and the Sermon on the Mount. Your children and teenagers are always welcome in our Sunday school.
Our child care room is staffed for all church services. Infants and toddlers are always welcome.
What exactly is a Christian Science Reading Room? It’s a place for quiet study, a place to bring your questions about Christian Science, and a place to purchase resources to aid you in your study of Christian Science. Among the items for sale are the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, our denominational publications, and children’s literature. The Bible is also available for purchase.
Our Reading Room is located in the lower level of the church.
What is Christian Science?
Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined Christian Science as “the law of God, the law of good . . .” (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1). She’d learned that God is infinite Love, and completely good. A clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal and transform anyone.
Mary Baker Eddy was a lifelong student of the Bible. And she’d always wanted to find solutions to human suffering. When she was critically injured in 1866, she turned to God with her whole heart.
While reading accounts of Jesus’ swift, powerful healings, she experienced a new sense of God. She saw that God, Spirit, is the only reality. And she was completely healed. She wanted to understand what happened, so she studied the Bible and found universal and dependable laws of God. These laws are the foundation of Christian Science.
Since then many people have been healed and redeemed as they learn about their relationship to God through this reliable Science of Christianity.
Read Mary Baker Eddy’s primary work, the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
