COVID-19 UPDATE --
CHURCH SERVICES HAVE RESUMED AS OF JUNE 3, 2020:
We are pleased to say (by carefully following state guidelines) we are able to resume our church services beginning on Wednesday June 3rd at 7:30 pm. Yay!
Here are some of the of the procedures we will be following:
The Christian Science Reading Room at 440 Main Street, Norway has reopened:
Tuesdays, 1-4pm and Saturdays, 10am-pm.
The Reading Room is Maine CDC compliant and requests that visitors wear a mask.
We unite with the prayers of the community for an end to the crisis.
Wednesday Testimony Meeting*
7:30 p.m. Daylight Savings Time (Mar. 11 - Oct. 28, 2020)
1:00 p.m. Standard Time (Nov. 4, 2020 - Mar. 10, 2021)
Like Sunday's service, there are hymns and readings, but just one reader does all the work!
He or she picks a topic, selects passages from the Bible and Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, to elucidate it, and hymns too, of course.
Then a large portion of the hour meeting is open to YOU and fellow attendees to share healings and comments on your study of Christian Science.
We all gain from sharing and listening to individual thoughts from each other.
Can't make it Wednesday? Or would prefer to check out a service from your home/phone?
You can listen (and participate, if you wish) to the meeting by telephone.
Call (605) 472-5724
Put in the access code: 101853
When prompted to announce yourself, do not!
(New as of January 2020, we/the host/the church are muting all callers, so you no longer need to push *6 to mute your phone when you call in.)
If you are having problems calling in, try this:
1. Dial backup number (425) 535-9171.
2. You will now be prompted to dial the original dial-in number.
3. You will now be prompted to enter the access code.
Odd, but might help!
It's an informal time -- a healing time -- a blessed time.
Childcare is provided at all services for children too young for Sunday School or meetings.
