First Church of Christ, Scientist, Springfield, Virginia
We’re glad to be part of the Springfield community, with many activities to support the community’s needs. We invite you to join us. Read on…
Sunday services – 10:30am
We hold Sunday services at the same time each week. The core of the service is the reading of the weekly Bible lesson-sermon, which consists of verses from the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. For over 100 years, the spiritual truths of these lesson-sermons have healed, regenerated, and supported those who have heard and studied them.
This week’s topic: Is the Universe, Including Man, Evolved by Atomic Force?
Wednesday testimony meetings – 7:30pm
In addition to the Sunday services, we join together each Wednesday evening to listen to readings and share experiences of God’s healing work in our lives. Come and be uplifted!
Sunday School – 10:30am
Children and teenagers up to the age of 20 are welcome to visit or enroll in our Sunday School at any time throughout the year. Pupils are taught from the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
Students are taught the Scriptures. The first lessons include The Ten Commandments, The Sermon on the Mount, The Lord’s Prayer, and its spiritual interpretation by Mary Baker Eddy. The next lessons consist of questions and answers derived from the Christian Science Quarterly weekly lesson, which is read in the church service.
We also offer virtual Sunday School classes via ZOOM for students who cannot attend Sunday School in person at 10:30 am – or at times convenient for them. Please contact our Clerk if you are interested in scheduling virtual Sunday School for your student.
Reading Room: bookstore/library
We offer a public Reading Room where authorized Christian Science literature may be read, borrowed, or purchased. The Reading Room features the Christian Science Monitor— an international weekly newsmagazine, along with the Christian Science Journal, Christian Science Sentinel, the Herald of Christian Science and other magazines.
The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures may be purchased in English, Spanish, and several other languages. It is available in hard cover, paperback, and a spiral bound study edition.
Our Reading Room is open on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7 pm and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm.
Note that our Bible study sessions are suspended during this time. Check back occasionally to see if we’ve resumed.
Bring your lunch with you each month when the Bible Bunch explores the meaning of the Scriptures using numerous Bible translations. No special study or knowledge of the Bible is required. We typically meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month, from 11:30 am to 1 pm, to examine the Bible’s most fascinating chapters and understand why this book is still humanity’s most loved treasure.
Please check back here for more information on our next public talk.
