Known as Churches of Christ, Scientist, each local church is a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts as shown here.

Each branch church is locally and democratically governed.  Each branch church strives to live up to definition of church given by Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health:

CHURCH. The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick.
” –p. 583:12-19

 

Ours is a lay church (we have no ordained clergy), so church members are elected to conduct the services.  Our Sunday morning services include congregational singing of hymns, scriptural readings, prayer, and a prepared sermon drawn from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.  These two books serve as our pastor.

Our informal Wednesday evening mid-week meeting includes Scriptural readings and related passages from the Christian Science textbook, followed by time set aside for members of the congregation to testify to healings experienced as a result of prayer or share insights gained as they grow in their understanding of God.
