COVID-19 UPDATE -- October 27, 2020
In accordance with State of Maine guidelines, windows are open during church services. Also our whole-house fan will be on to keep the air fresh. (The whole-house fan brings air in through windows and exhausts it back outside.) With cooler weather, the heat is on now too. We suggest you come prepared with a sweater or jacket to wear during services. We will continue to monitor Maine guidelines for updates or changes.
We are pleased to say (by carefully following state guidelines) we resumed our church services on Wednesday June 3rd, 2020. Yay!
Here are some of the of the procedures we are following:
The Christian Science Reading Room at 440 Main Street, Norway has reopened:
Tuesdays, 1-4pm and Saturdays, 10am-1pm.
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*
1:00 p.m. Standard Time (Nov. 4, 2020 - Mar. 10, 2021)
7:30 p.m. Daylight Savings Time (Mar. 17 - Nov. 4, 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.
It's an informal time -- a healing time -- a blessed time.
Childcare is currently not provided for children too young for Sunday School or meetings due to the pandemic. You are welcome to bring your children into the service.
Can't make it Wednesday? Or would prefer to check out a service from your home/phone?
