“I was recently having a conversation with two friends. They each spoke warmly of the pastors of their churches and said how much the pastors’ insights into the Scriptures had meant to them. I, too, turn to the ‘pastor’ of my church, but it is a different kind of pastor than people usually think of when they use that term.

As a Christian Scientist, I’ve long turned for spiritual guidance to the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. In fact, Mrs. Eddy, in a remarkable innovation designed to preserve the purity of her discovery, established these two books as the impersonal pastor for her Church. Like many, I’ve found actual healing in the spiritual understanding of God and of man’s relation to Him that these two books have given me. This points to something that my two friends and I share in common—an acknowledgment of the underlying spiritual message of the Bible.”

Robert A. Johnson
From the August 1991 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The church’s Annual Meeting took place on June 6, and if you missed it, you can see the replay here. Or, if you are new to Christian Science, or just “window shopping,” this video can serve as a way of introducing you to the denomination founded by Mary Baker Eddy in the late 19th century.

Feel free to stop by our reading room for a visit or join us for a service!


“It was quite awhile before the storm cleared, and we decided to call it a day rather than finish the round. As I headed for my car I realized my wallet was not in its usual place, in a pocket of my golf bag.”

Read how Florida resident Jim Graham was led to find his wallet, which disappeared during a golf game.


“ … as I continued to pray, the following words came to me with the full weight of divine authority behind them: ‘You don’t have to suffer for trying to bless others.’ These words meant that, because I was a spiritual idea of God, I was safe in God’s care and couldn’t be made to suffer as a worldly, material being would suffer. I couldn’t be harmed for trying to bless others as a loving child of God. Immediately, something in my back moved into place, and there was absolutely no more pain.”

Dave Crockett, of Orlando, was healed of a back injury so painful that he could not sleep for two nights. Here’s how.


“In my early 20s, I was having a wonderful time. I played a lot of golf, I played a lot of tennis, I took a few college classes, and I was working part-time. But then something happened. I went to sleep one night, expecting to get up the next day, and do it all over again. But that’s not what happened.

“When I did wake up, I couldn’t move arms or legs. And staying conscious for very long was next to impossible.”

This lecturer, Stormy Falso, found healing through Christian Science. She defines Christian Science as, “the utilization of the laws of God, through prayer, to heal just as Jesus did and taught.” You can hear her story is this 56-minute lecture.



Every now and then, our church selects the finest ingredients — a local park bursting with lushness, good munchies, volleyball, and Frisbee golf and puts them all together. Add some great weather and the chance to get to know our members better and what do you have? The 2022 church picnic, plus quite a few kids and adults looking forward to tasting the next one!


This year’s Jetty Park event, taking place March 25–27, in Cape Canaveral, was a great success, and, without intending to be, was a symbolic way of tossing the stay-at-home lifestyle many of us have adopted right in to the Jetty Park dumpster. This was not just a Saturday event, but the entire weekend, featuring camping, kayaking, a barbeque, a Sunday morning church service, and plenty of renewed friendships. Photos


Our DiscoveryBound group in Central Florida has been holding events at Jetty Park, in Cape Canaveral, for ages, but we ventured into new territory, on November 6, for an event at Fort De Soto Park, near St. Petersburg. Coming from six states, 55 participants filled the day with kayaking, cycling (two-wheelers and four-wheelers), making new friends, and hearing our inspirational speaker, Donna Black, CS. Photos

great deals available in our reading room!

Our reading room, located in the church, offers excellent prices, free services, and is open 34 hours per week.

Services

Church services are held every Sunday morning at 10:30. Join us for a timely lesson from the Bible and our Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures! The public is always welcome. No need to dress up. Feel free to come as you are! Child care is provided.

We also meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 to share how Christian Science has impacted our lives through healing. Christian Science promotes the healing of both sin and disease … in short, the healing of any kind of error. These testimony meetings feature hymns, Bible readings, and spontaneously given testimonies of healing from those in attendance.

We are now meeting in the church as well as simultaneously on Zoom, for both Sunday and Wednesday meetings.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School is happy to welcome all visitors from preschool up to the age of twenty. Our excellent, dedicated staff instructs students in the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

Our goal is to meet and inspire a love for God and Christian values in our students. We strive to teach the usefulness and practical application of the Bible in our daily lives by emulating the example of Jesus’ healing ministry.

Reading Room

In our reading room Bibles, Christian Science books, magazines, and other books are available for purchase, loan, or reference. All are welcome.

The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, was first published in 1875 and has been providing the healing truth to mankind since that time. An entire chapter of the textbook is devoted to healings that people have experienced simply by reading the book.

You may always stop by to study each week’s Bible lesson. And if you cannot visit in person, you can read this lesson online, by clicking here. (A subscription to the digital edition is required.)

Reading room hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, weekdays, except Wednesdays (1:30 pm to 7:15) and Saturdays (10:00 to 2:00).
