Sunday and Wednesday Evening Services
There will be a temporary change in location for our church services for Sunday October 22, Wednesday October 25 and Sunday October 29, 2017 only.
The Church services, noted above, will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 230 NE 9th St., Bend, at our regular times. We will meet in their “Wellbeing” room in the lower level.
The entrance to the lower level parking lot and door is the first left hand turn if you are driving south from Franklin Blvd. on 9th Street. If you are driving north on 9th Street the second entrance on the right will be the correct one.
Ushers should arrive at least forty-five minutes prior to the services, in order to set up seating and arrange hymnals and quarterlies. An additional usher will be assigned to greet/direct at the entrance.

Sunday services are from 10:00 – 11:00 am. Sunday School is held in concert with our church services.
Wednesday Evening services are from 7:30pm - 8:30pm. Child care is provided.
The Sunday service consists of the weekly Bible lesson, read aloud by elected members of the church, the First and Second Readers, hymns, and prayer with the congregation praying together the Lord's Prayer.
The Lesson Sermon is made up of thought-provoking, topical weekly topics from our Pastor the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Some of the subjects for the Lesson Sermons are: God, Man, Life, Truth, Love, "Are Sin, Disease, and Death Real?"
The Lesson Sermon is published in advance and can be read and studied throughout the week – you can read more about it by clicking here.
Christian Science church services around the world unite in reading to their congregations the same Lesson Sermon. Sunday school and childcare are lovingly provided during these meetings.
Wednesday Testimony Meetings
Come and join with other spiritual thinkers for a short hour on Wednesday evenings. Gain spiritual refreshment from the prepared readings from our Pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Citations are selected and read by the First Reader on a current topic that the world or individuals are facing.
These readings comprise the first half of the meeting. The second half of the meeting is open for participants to share gratitude and healings they have had through practicing the spiritual teachings of Christian Science. It’s an opportunity to share and be inspired by each other’s spiritual journey. Child care is provided during these meetings.

Conference Call Information
Dear Church Members and Friends;
For several years now we have offered the option to attend Wednesday testimony meetings by conference call. We have been very pleased to offer it and look forward to doing so again in the future.
At this time, while we are in temporary quarters, we will not be offering the conference call. Until we are able to offer the conference again, you might like to try this link to The Mother Church's service given at 2:00 Eastern Time.
