Our Sunday School is every Sunday from 11 am – noon.
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.

Kids’ and Teens’ Inspirational Corner
A mom comments on the two oldest of her athletic sons: “I’m always so proud of how they use Christian Science throughout their days and in every activity. I know they are out on the football field praying to express their best qualities and share God’s goodness and joy and excellence with everyone on the field. When their teammates or opponents go down my boys see it as their duty to put out a helping hand and share their good thinking and healing thoughts as learned in Sunday School.”
A student at the College of William and Mary says: “I have been attending this Sunday School for about a month now and I am deeply grateful for its spiritually supportive environment. By discussing Bible Lesson topics and their applications to our lives, I can clearly see that ‘Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need’ (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health, p. 494).”
Onward and Upward
Press on, press on, and fear no foe,
With calm resolve to triumph go;
Victorious over every ill,
Press on to higher glory still.
