Sunday School

Sunday School is held every Sunday morning at the same time as the church service (10:30 - 11:30 am). Young people up to the age of 20 from all denominations or no denomination are welcome.
Students join with other kids their own age in small classes to discuss ideas and explore the answers to questions like "Does prayer really work?", "What is healing?" and "Can we pray about global warming?" Experienced Christian Scientists talk with students about topics relevant to their lives, whether it's challenges in the classroom, on the playground, or issues with peers or parents. Teachers and students study the Bible and its healing messages along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Students learn about their relationship to God and how to apply practical scriptural truths in their day-to-day experiences
