Christian Science Sunday School affords a practical, spiritual means of meeting and healing the problems young people encounter in everyday life. Our Sunday School classes, for young people under twenty, are divided by age groups, and are designed to meet the needs of each individual student. Classes are based on the Bible, and also use Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy to help the students dig deeper.
Everyone can practice the healing ideas taught in the Bible and in the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly. Students of all ages are taught the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer and its spiritual interpretation by Mrs. Eddy, and the Sermon on the Mount.
Students are encouraged to ask questions and talk about challenges they may be facing. A Christian Science Sunday School experience is designed to teach them how to heal problems by elevating thought to a more spiritual perspective. Knowing the truth makes us free. A Christian Science Sunday School experience equips young people with wisdom to be used for a lifetime.
We enjoy a warm, friendly, family feeling of togetherness, and all are welcome to join us.
Available for children and teenagers, they explore Bible stories to discover their deeper spiritual meaning and their relevance to everyday life.
The Children’s Room is located in the church building for infants and those too young for Sunday School.

“This Sunday School has helped me develop myself spiritually in every part of my life, and I am so grateful for my strong foundation in Christian Science.”
The true theory of the universe, including man, is not in material history but in spiritual development.
— Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 547.
The book of Psalms says: “Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands” (66:1), and this is what we try to do, whether in Sunday School itself or, as in this photo, at a Christmas Hymn Sing.
“Sing, ye joyous children, sing,/Glorious is the Christ, our king,/Truth has come again to earth,/Through the lowly Saviour’s birth./Men and angels, anthems raise; /Hymns of joy and shouts of praise,/Hear th’angelic song again;/Peace on earth, good will to men./Sing, ye joyous children, sing,/Glorious is the Christ, our king.”
Christian Science Hymnal, Hymn 310, verse 1
“I have been attending this Sunday School for the year and a half I have been at William & Mary, and it has been so helpful in helping me maintain my spiritual perspective on the world. I have been blessed by a variety of teachers here, and each one has given me spiritual insights that help me work through personal thoughts and challenges spiritually. I’m so grateful to be able to have deep spiritual discussions with them, and I also love getting to see the younger children learning about their own spiritual nature and the goodness of God. It’s always so helpful to learn more about how ‘Man is the idea of Spirit; he reflects the beatific presence, illuming the universe with light’ (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 266:27), where ‘man’ refers to me and everyone else as a child of God.”
