Our church is one of the worldwide branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts, founded by ​Mary Baker Eddy in 1879.

We have been a part of this beautiful, desert community for over 60 years, providing Sunday and Wednesday services, Sunday School, a Reading Room and lectures about Christian Science.

Please visit our Reading Room (next door to our church) for a lovely, peaceful place to pray, think, do research, read the weekly Bible Lesson and check out various books and publications. 


And, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of experienced Christian Scientists on staff.  Find out how they have applied the truths of Christian Science in their own lives.

"The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love."  So reads the first line of the first chapter of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p.1.  The Bible and Science and Health are the textbooks of Christian Science.  To learn more, please visit our page: What is Christian Science?

What is Christian Science? An approach to Christianity based on the idea that the divine truth and love which shone through Jesus' life and works are timeless, universal, and understandable, and so can be experienced through healing in our lives today.  Find out more here.
