thanksgiving day service
Thursday, Nov. 23, 10 am - at our church
Everyone in the community is welcome to join in our annual Thanksgiving service. We will have hymn singing and a beautiful Bible lesson. Time will be set aside for those attending to give public expressions of gratitude to God and share Christian Science healings they've had. Come spend a special hour in praise and prayer to God this Thanksgiving!
We are located at 600 N. Main St., on the corner of Hawthorne and Main, just north of downtown Glen Ellyn.
Here is hymn 150 from the Christian Science Hymnal. The words are by William P. McKenzie.
In mercy, in goodness, how great is our King;
Our tribute, thanksgiving, with glad hearts we bring.
Thou art the Renewer, the Ancient of Days,
Who givest, for mourning, the garment of praise.
We thank Thee for work in the wide harvest field,
For gladness that ripens when sorrow is healed;
Made strong with Thy goodness that meets every need,
We gather the fruit of the Sower’s good seed.
Dear Father and Saviour, we thank Thee for life,
And courage that rises undaunted by strife,
For confident giving and giving’s reward,
For beauty and love in the life of our Lord.

science and health study group
Thursdays, 1:30 to 2:30 pm
at the reading room,
600 N. Main, in Glen Ellyn
We would love to have all interested people join us as we read Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, over the year. It's a book that has radically changed many lives. Written by the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, it is our textbook and as Mary Baker Eddy said of it: "The textbook of Christian Science maintains primitive Christianity, shows how to demonstrate it, and throughout is logical in premise and in conclusion."
If you can't come in person, you may want to get a copy of Science and Health, available at our Reading Room, and read along with others. Join in the group anytime! We will meet on Thursdays.
These are the readings for week 39 to meet on Thursday, November 30.

Weekly Testimony Meetings
Every Wednesday at 7:30 pm
Our regular weekly testimony meetings are for everyone. Come and explore a different subject each week. The Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, are the spiritual resources for our readings. They are followed by an open session for people to share ways that their study of Christian Science has brought healing to their lives.
