Sunday Morning Services: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Sunday services at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Hudson, Ohio meet in the morning from 10:30 to 11:30. A musical prelude is followed by a greeting, the first of three hymns sung, Scriptural readings, prayer followed by the audible repetition of the Lord’s Prayer, a soloist, and a Lesson Sermon from our pastor, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker; the service ends with a musical postlude. A First Reader, democratically elected from the congregation, conducts the service and reads from Science and Health, and a Second Reader, also elected from the congregation, reads from the Bible.
The Lesson Sermon is prepared by The Mother Church and is studied in advance, weekly by students of Christian Science. It is the same sermon heard in all Christian Science churches throughout the world. The Lesson Sermon consists of citations from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
