Welcome to our Website

The members of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, South Bend, Indiana, welcome you.  We hope the information posted on our site will help give you a good understanding of this deeply Christian denomination and healing way of life.

Our church is one of about 1,700  branches of the Christian Science denomination, in 80 countries.  It is headquartered in Boston, Mass.  This branch has been in existence in South Bend for nearly 120 years. (See church history).

The Church of Christ, Scientist, was founded in 1879 by Mary Baker Eddy "to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing (Church Manual, pg. 17).

We proudly continue that mission through our Sunday and Wednesday services,  and the Christian Science Reading Room. We also offer a vibrant Sunday School for students up to the age of 20.

Through the study of Christian Science and by reading Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy, many people have found improvements in their physical, psychological, financial and emotional health, plus answers to their deepest spiritual questions and an abiding peace.

A great way to explore this compelling religion is to visit the Christian Science Reading Room in downtown South Bend. It's where many visitors had their first encounter with Christian Science.  As a spiritual resource center for the community, our Reading Room is a combination book store, library and study room where the public can access publications and recordings helpful in their study and spiritual enrichment.

You are welcome to join us for our services, bring your children to Sunday School, visit the Reading Room, and look around this web site.

We look forward to an opportunity to meet you!
