100 years of Christian Science military ministry — a call to serve

Learn about the Christian Science Military Chaplaincy—how it began, ways it has evolved, and where it’s headed. Chaplains also discuss how this program ministers to today’s servicemen and women and serves the mission of Christian Science healing.

“We do not have a health care system. We have a disease management system.”

“When five of 15 people get the flu, why are we studying the five that got the flu and not the 10 that didn’t …? Isn’t health something more than the absence of disease?”

— comments from researchers, as told by Christian Science lecturer Rob Gilbert in his talk “God and Healing”

A New View of God and Its Effect on Well-Being

“I’d had an episode of arthritis as a young boy, and the left leg didn’t develop properly. So I had one leg shorter than the other. That caused the spine to curve in the opposite direction, called a scoliosis, and because of the spine curving in one way, my neck curved in the opposite way, to keep my eyes level, so my neck was always off-center, and it used to lock very painfully for weeks at a time. So, I was grossly underweight, one leg shorter than the other, curvature of the spine... That was the condition I was in when I came to the lecture.”

— Phillip Hockley, speaking about his first Christian Science lecture

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.

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.


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.) Starting March 16 you’ll need an active subscription to access the Digital Edition. Click the above link for more details.

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).
