First Church of Christ, Scientist, Chevy Chase, Maryland

Our Church Services

The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy serve as the pastor of Christian Science churches. Readings from these books are presented at every Sunday morning service and Wednesday evening meeting by Readers elected from our membership. Wednesday meetings also include testimonies from the congregation in gratitude for inspiration and healing.

You are welcome to join us!

 **Directions for teleconference during inclement weather:
1. Dial 1-605-477-3000. (The system will be on 5 minutes before the service starting time, i.e. 9:55 or 7:55)
2. When prompted to enter the access code, punch in 704116#.
3. When asked to announce yourself, please remain silent so you will not distract others already listening in. 
4. Punch in *6. Then you will hear a voice confirmation that your phonehas been muted. You will be able to hear the Readers and may participate in the service by saying or singing the words of the hymns and praying the Lord's Prayer aloud, but no one else on the line will hear your voice or background noises that might come over your phone. Muting your phone will help everyone avoid distraction.

You will hear the Readers proceed through the service as usual. However, there will be no organ music or solo. We will proceed from the Lesson-Sermon right to the last hymn, skipping the collection. The service will end after the First Reader gives the benediction and says, "Amen". Please hang up at the conclusion of the service.
