Everyone is Invited to Our Open House on Sunday afternoon, April 24th
Between 1:30 PM and 4:00 PM
First Church of Christ, Scientist
1725 Pickens St. Columbia, SC 29201
For more than 100 years, First Church of Christ, Scientist, has called Columbia home. Recently we moved to our new location at 1725 Pickens St., opposite the new Hampton-Preston Arboretum. We are eager to welcome you to our renovated and recently dedicated church edifice. All are invited to attend our services and use our Reading Room, whether you've been a follower of Christ for years or are exploring Christianity for the first time.
As a Bible-based church, we follow the teachings of Christ Jesus. Jesus' teachings are the heart and soul of our faith. Applying his system of Christian healing, we are proving that social, physical and mental struggles can be overcome. We have seen that the power of prayer is an effective means of healthcare. Yet, we also respect that everyone is free to choose their own preferred treatment method.
Our Sunday services include a time of worship, reflection, and readings from the Holy Bible and our denominational textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scripture, by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science. Sunday services are held at 10:30 AM. Sunday School for those up to the age of 20 is held at the same time. We also have a children's room for those not ready for Sunday School.
Every Wednesday, we meet at 7:00 PM for a testimonial meeting. Citations from the Holy Bible and the Christian Science textbook are read on a topic relevant to local and world affairs. Those present share gratitude for God's many blessings and healings.
We also offer a quiet place for you to study, research, read and pray in our Christian Science Reading Room (located in the same building as our church). It's open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. A member is present to answer questions and help you find the information you are looking for.
In February, we held a dedication service celebrating that our edifice is debt-free. It was the second dedication for the church in its 100-year history here in Columbia. This was a significant milestone for all of us.
We want to continue the celebration by inviting you to join us for an open house on April 24th from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM. Church members will be here to greet you and show you our new building. Light refreshments will be served.
We're excited about the future of our church and the next 100 years of service. We hope you'll join us on April 24th! Our doors are open to everyone. So come as you are, we look forward to meeting you!
Love is the liberator. Pray Locally – Bless Globally.
