About First Church of Christ Scientist, Murfreesboro


Come visit us! We are a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts.

Each Sunday we have a service at 10 a.m. for one hour. For one hour, we sing hymns, pray, and hear a Lesson-Sermon. Our Lesson-Sermon is a Bible Lesson that is available each week for reading and study beforehand and then is read aloud by two lay readers elected by the local church. Readings are from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. LEARN MORE.

For those up to age 20, we offer a Sunday School (also at 10 a.m.) where Bible lessons and stories are taught and discussed through song, game, pictures, hands-on activities, workshops, and even Skype with distance classes or students who are away. We also offer loving child care for the very young. LEARN MORE.

Mid week meetings are dynamic testimony meetings which are held at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays. What a great inspiration and encouragement these are! Following readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on a timely topic, the meeting is then turned over to those in attendance. They share how they’ve experienced or witnessed Christian healing as learned through the study and practice of the Science of Christianity. Inspiration as well as experiences they have had, insights and remarks on Christian Science are also a regular part of these meetings. Email submissions are welcome from those unable to be present and are read aloud. Soon we hope that we will be able to offer attendance by Skype and/or phone in. You will be so glad you came!

What is a Christian Science Reading Room anyway? It’s a combination bookstore, library, reading area, and a place for “seekers”! It can be quiet, bustling with activity, vibrant… and always welcoming.
