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.Mary Baker Eddy.

This week’s topic: Probation After Death
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
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 news magazine, 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 Wednesday evenings from 6 to 7 pm and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm.
Bible Study sessions are suspended during this time. Check back occasionally to see if we’ve resumed.
We occasionally sponsor public talks by Christian Science healers. These free events explain how you can experience healing in your own life.
Our church is enthusiastically preparing to host Giulia Nesi Tetreau, CSB, a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, for a free public talk at 11 am on Saturday, November 13th, at the George Mason Regional Library, 7001 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, Virginia.
Please note that all Fairfax County Public Libraries, including this one require that masks be worn indoors.
Giulia’s talk, “A Spiritual Revolution: The Quest to Experience God,” will explore how to move forward with hope—not fear or anxiety. Learn how an understanding of God as universal, divine Love can transform your life. Learn how an understanding of God, as universal, divine Love, can transform your life.
Giulia Nesi Tetreau is a spiritual healer and teacher of Christian Science. After spending several years in the mental health field as a psychotherapist, she felt compelled to make a life-changing decision to leave her practice and focus completely on the healing ministry of Christian Science—which she was introduced to through the book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
