I was recently having a conversation with two friends. They each spoke warmly of the pastors of their churches and said how much the pastors’ insights into the Scriptures had meant to them. I, too, turn to the “pastor” of my church, but it is a different kind of pastor than people usually think of when they use that term.

As a Christian Scientist, I’ve long turned for spiritual guidance to the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. In fact, Mrs. Eddy, in a remarkable innovation designed to preserve the purity of her discovery, established these two books as the impersonal pastor for her Church. Like many, I’ve found actual healing in the spiritual understanding of God and of man’s relation to Him that these two books have given me. This points to something that my two friends and I share in common—an acknowledgment of the underlying spiritual message of the Bible.

The church’s Annual Meeting took place on Monday, June 3, 2024, and if you missed it, you can see the replay here. Or, if you are new to Christian Science, or just “window shopping,” this video can serve as a way of introducing you to the denomination founded by Mary Baker Eddy in the late 19th century. Feel free to stop by our reading room for a visit or join us for a service!



“It was quite awhile before the storm cleared, and we decided to call it a day rather than finish the round. As I headed for my car I realized my wallet was not in its usual place, in a pocket of my golf bag.”

Read how Winter Garden resident Jim Graham was led to find his wallet, which disappeared during a golf game.


“But Mom,” I pointed out, “that new church we’re going to … they don’t do that, do they?” She agreed, but we both had to admit that we had no idea as to what they did do. Someone had brought home a copy of the Christian Science Journal, so we took a look at it, thinking it might offer an answer.”

Mark Spain, of Orlando, describes his first healing, as a teenager, of a disease that repeatedly caused him to miss school, until it was healed. Find out how.


Unfortunately, I was a single mom of three and a tipped employee. I reassured my daughter that we might have to use the credit card, “But we’ll find a way.”

Tessa Deprez, of Orlando, offers a testimony that illustrates how God provides for us, even though the need is financial, not physical.

For 21 years, the youth group DiscoveryBound has convened on Florida’s east coast — Jetty Park to be specific — for a weekend of camping, kayaking, beach activities, barbecues, inspirational talks, sunrise beach walks, and Sunday morning church services. Attendants come from several states to renew old acquaintances and start new ones.

For anyone who missed this year’s event, you can get a taste by taking a look at the photos on this site, which will be updated regularly, as well as our SmugMug site, which also contains videos.

If you’d like to join us next year, or have questions, call our reading room at (407) 896-0770.



Our DiscoveryBound group in Central Florida has been holding events at Jetty Park, in Cape Canaveral, for ages, but we ventured into new territory, on November 6, 2021 for an event at Fort De Soto Park, near St. Petersburg. Coming from six states, 55 participants filled the day with kayaking, cycling (two-wheelers and four-wheelers), making new friends, and hearing our inspirational speaker, Donna Black, CS. Photos

Services

Church services are held every Sunday morning at 10:30. Join us for a timely lesson from the Bible and our Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures! The public is always welcome. No need to dress up. Feel free to come as you are! Child care is provided.

We also meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 to share how Christian Science has impacted our lives through healing. Christian Science promotes the healing of both sin and disease … in short, the healing of any kind of error. These testimony meetings feature hymns, Bible readings, and spontaneously given testimonies of healing from those in attendance.

We are now meeting in the church as well as simultaneously on Zoom, for both Sunday and Wednesday meetings.

Sunday School

Our Sunday School is happy to welcome all visitors from preschool up to the age of twenty. Our excellent, dedicated staff instructs students in the Bible, along with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

Our goal is to meet and inspire a love for God and Christian values in our students. We strive to teach the usefulness and practical application of the Bible in our daily lives by emulating the example of Jesus’ healing ministry.

Reading Room

In our reading room Bibles, Christian Science books, magazines, and other books are available for purchase, loan, or reference. All are welcome.

The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, was first published in 1875 and has been providing the healing truth to mankind since that time. An entire chapter of the textbook is devoted to healings that people have experienced simply by reading the book.

You may always stop by to study each week’s Bible lesson. And if you cannot visit in person, you can read this lesson online, by clicking here. (A subscription to the digital edition is required.)

Reading room hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, weekdays, except Wednesdays (1:30 pm to 7:15) and Saturdays (10:00 to 2:00).
