Some of you may be aware that our members here in Savannah have voted to change our official status from First Church of Christ, Scientist to Christian Science Society of Savannah. This process, shepherded by The Mother Church in Boston, grants smaller congregations like ours a little more flexibility in how they operate in their community. One aspect of that flexibility is the freedom to operate seasonally, when such a schedule may work best for the membership or the community.
This year, we have voted to function as a seasonal society, with services suspended during the summer. This means that for the next three months — June, July, and August — our church will not hold services on Sundays or Wednesdays. This change goes into effect June 1st, so our last service before fall will be held Sunday, May 29th.
Our beloved leader, Mary Baker Eddy, defines church (in part) as: “the structure of Truth and Love, whatever rests upon or proceeds from Divine Principle.” Be assured that this structure stands strong, and that our members are praying for and actively supporting our community with love, even when public services are not going on.
Please watch our website for news of reopening, and we will see you in September!
Welcome to Savannah's Christian Science Society! Our society, closed seasonally from June through August, is a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. Discovered and founded by Mary Baker Eddy in February 1866, Christian Science teaches that the healing messages found in the Bible are applicable today through prayer that acknowledges the supremacy of God.
"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings."
- Mary Baker Eddy, founder and discoverer of Christian Science
