Welcome to First Church of Christ, Scientist, Orinda!


A Sunday School student noted this July 4th. That simple truth is a rock for all of us.

We are a Christian Science church that meets twice a week to listen, pray, share, and praise. We believe that God is all good, and that man is made in His (Her) likeness.

We are a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.   Our Sunday sermons come directly from the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the Christian Science textbook, by Mary Baker Eddy. Wednesday evenings we gather as a circle of friends to share our experiences in practicing this healing science.

You are invited to visit or join us as we learn and practice more this infinite theme of God’s goodness and ever-present love.

We will be celebrating Thanksgiving in our church at 10:00 AM on Thanksgiving Day with gratitude, praise, and joy, in hymns, a special message from our Pastor*, and testimonies.  You are invited to come!  If you are not able to come in person, here is the Thanksgiving  Sermon that will be read that day.

*The Bible together with Science and Health are the Pastor of the Christian Science church.
