Reading Room

A quiet place to get away, to be still and find your connection to God.

A refuge for prayer, study, & spiritual refreshment.

A place for inquiry & conversation on spiritual ideas & perspectives.

The Reading Room is your local resource for Christian Science study materials to help guide your spiritual journey, including the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and her other writings. It also provides a means for delving into the Bible with Bible translations, reference books, and maps available. People have found that the study of these books can bring a deeper, more spiritual outlook to life and help overcome life’s challenges. We also carry biographies about Mary Baker Eddy. Read the Bible online or read Science and Health online.

The weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson can be read and studied in the Reading Room. This is the same lesson that will be read aloud at the Sunday service and discussed in Sunday School in Christian Science churches and societies throughout the world.

The magazines, the Christian Science Sentinel, The Christian Science Journal, and The Herald of Christian Science in Spanish, French, and German are available to read or purchase. These publications contain articles and current accounts of healing experienced through the practice of Christian Science. The news magazine The Christian Science Monitor Weekly can be purchased.
