Title: PRAYER AND WELL-BEING: A SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE
By Nate Frederick
Sat, September 25, 2021 at 11:00 AM ET
Location: Westport Women's Club, 44 Imperial Ave., Westport, Connecticut
Are prayer and healing for you? I mean, if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you're not even sure what you think about God, can you still pray and be healed?
Yes. Because prayer and healing are natural to us, and I say this as one who didn't even grow up in a religious household. But what I've discovered as I've studied Christian Science is that a willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect--for anyone.
In my lecture, I'll share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as I've learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.
Our church is now open for in-person Sunday services, Sunday School and child care. Wednesday services in-person AND simulcast via Zoom at 7:00 pm.

The Sunday Healing service is conducted by two lay readers elected from the membership who read a bible Lesson-Sermon which consists of passages from the King James version of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.
Also included in the service are readings from the Scriptures, prayer, hymns, and other musical selections including a vocal solo.
The Sunday school is located upstairs in the church building, and children up to the age of 20 are welcomed. Here, students can discuss ideas from the weekly Bible Lesson with people their own age and with an experienced teacher. Students learn to know and love God and how the teachings of Christ Jesus can help in overcoming problems they may face in school, in relationships, in sports and social activities, at work or anywhere.
Parents are encouraged to visit with the teachers before and after the services to learn more about the curriculum. All are welcome!
