Church Service - Sunday 10:00 a.m.
Every week people all over the world gather in Christian Science churches and societies to give prayerful attention to a specific subject as provided in the Christian Science Quarterly. There are 26 Bible Lesson subjects, which appear twice a year. Each Lesson includes selections from the Bible and Christian Science Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, which are read during the Sunday service, and can also be studied during the week prior to each service. Our church services also include music -- hymn singing and a solo.
We also offer a special Thanksgiving service every year on Thanksgiving Day at 10:00 a.m.
First Church of Christ, Scientist, Petoskey Services
Our church offers Sunday morning services, Sunday School, and Wednesday evening testimony meetings.
All of these services are open to the public.
Sunday School - Sunday 10:00 a.m.
Sunday School classes are provided for children ages three to twenty.
Lessons in the Sunday School are based on the Bible and the Christian Science Textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
In the youngest classes, children learn the Ten Commandments, Lord's Prayer, Beatitudes, and many Bible stories. As students progress through the Sunday School, they explore ideas about how to apply what they are learning to their every day lives through prayer.
Children too young for Sunday School are lovingly cared for in our Children's Room.
Testimony Meeting - Wednesday 7:00 p.m.
Our Wednesday evening testimony meetings include hymn singing and readings from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
