Christian Science in Burien, Washington

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Burien and Renton

Our Services

Christian Science is a system of spiritual healing discovered and established by Mary Baker Eddy, and based on the teachings and healings of Christ Jesus. It is fully explained in her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science. This book and the Bible serve as our pastor.

We hold two one-hour services every week – a Sunday-morning service at 9:30 a.m. and a Wednesday-evening testimony meeting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday School for children and young people under 20 is held at the same time as the Sunday church service.

Sunday Worship

The Sunday service at 9:30 a.m. includes music, prayer, and a Weekly Bible Lesson (our sermon) read by readers from our membership. This lesson-sermon consists of passages from the Bible (King James Version) and from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The weekly sermon topic and citations are found in the Christian Science Quarterly – in various printed versions and on CDs – and can be read and studied by anyone during the week prior to Sunday. Multimedia versions of the lesson are available at eBibleLesson.com, and an edition for young people is online at MyBibleLesson.com.

Wednesday Testimony Meetings

Every Wednesday we meet at 7:30 p.m. This service is led by our First Reader and includes readings from the Bible and from Science and Health aimed at healing contemporary world problems, and providing spiritual uplift for those who attend. You can also attend our Wednesday evening meeting via conference call (details below).

Following the readings, the congregation is invited to share experiences of spiritual healing – of physical, personal, financial and other problems – or insight gained through prayer and the study of Christian Science.

Everyone is welcome at all our services. Small children will be lovingly cared for in our Children’s Room.
