Our church, a branch of The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, MA, is part of a network of Christian Science Churches and Societies around the world dedicated to reinstating “primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing” (Mary Baker Eddy).  We are a diverse group of people who live in and love Evanston, the greater Chicago area, and the world.  In addition to our Sunday and Wednesday inspirational and healing services and Sunday School, we maintain a Christian Science Reading Room, a spiritual bookstore and resource center.

Are you looking for spiritual answers to some of life’s toughest questions?

  • Would you like to get to know God as Love and who loves you?

We invite you to explore this site, stop by our Reading Room, and join us at one of our church services.  We hope you find inspiration and healing here.

    Dear Audition Coordinator,
    My name is Jordan Becker, and I am a bass. I am interested in auditioning for a regular soloist position at the church, or a possible substitute for this season. I have a question, which is if you offer any compensation per call for services on Sunday mornings.

    I have a resume that I can email you.

    So,if you wouldn’t mind emailing me back at your earliest convenience, with an audition date, time,location,any specific repertoire’ requirements, and again compensation that would be great.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon, as well as singing for you.
    Thank You,
    Jordan Becker

    Did anyone happen to find or have any clues about a set of keys that might be on street parking area of Hurd right in front of the church? Between Sunday School and main entrance area?
    Thank you!

    Today the Sunday Service was simply outstanding. Thank you to all who prepare and offer their service to achieve the powerful result.

    Is it possible to find the prelude music, paricularly the 3rd from last piece- from today’s service?

    I am new to the ideas of Jesus and religion in general. My hope is to be able to find a great church that can help me know my savior more closely. I love the good book and I want to have a better knowledge and understanding of it, through the instructions of those more knowledgeable that me about Christ.

      Thank you so much for reaching out t0 the Christian Science church in Evanston. I can well appreciate your yearning to learn more about Christ Jesus and how biblical teachings can enrich and bless your life.

      We maintain a Reading Room that is stocked full of Bible translations, church magazines, and a wealth of other study materials to help you in your search for answers.

      But most importantly, you will find the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer of this divine Science and of this world wide church. Mrs. Eddy’s own lifetime search of the scriptures is what helped her to be personally healed of a life threatening injury, and to get a glimpse of the natural laws of God, good, that Jesus taught his followers, showing them how to heal and find God.

      The Reading Room is open daily (to everyone) except Sundays from 10-2 and is staffed with a knowledgeable librarian who can help you find what you are looking for. Please feel free to stop by. It’s at 1936 Central Street in north Evanston, 1 block or so west of Green Bay Road on the south side of the street. Metra is also 1 block away.

      You are also most welcome to attend our services. They are held on Wednesdays at 7:30 where a portion of the hour is set aside for members to share testimonies of healing. Our Sunday service is at 10:30. Please feel free to come and introduce yourself to an usher if you so desire.

      Thank you again for your inquiry. I wish you well in your search.

      Beth Galfer
