First Church of Christ, Scientist, Darien, CT
Welcome to First Church of Christ, Scientist in Darien, CT.
Founded on the teachings of Christian Science, we follow the uplifting, effective, healing, and transforming Christianity which Jesus taught.
We invite you to explore this site and discover what our church has to offer. You’ll also find here the times of our Sunday and Wednesday Evening services, the hours our Reading Room is open, and a map showing the location of our church and Reading Room.
We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings as we sing hymns, pray and hear the weekly Lesson-Sermon read from the King James Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. Together these two books are the Pastor for Christian Science churches worldwide, speaking in a way that reaches every age and culture. These services are conducted by a First and Second Reader elected by the membership.
In each weekly Lesson, Bible passages are amplified and explained through correlative passages from Science and Health. The Lesson, outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, is studied during the preceding week by Christian Scientists throughout the world. Please feel free to join in this search for a deeper understanding of God and His creation.
Everyone up to the age of 20 is welcome here! Sunday School, held year-round, is a happy environment where each child learns of God’s love for them. Students learn how to pray and turn to God for help. In small classes, they discover how the spiritual and moral teachings of the Bible and Science and Health can help them in daily life. They learn how the Ten Commandments and Christ Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount are practical guides for health and success. Infants and children too small for Sunday School are cared for in the Children’s Room.
