First Church of Christ, Scientist PDX

We Welcome You

The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Portland, Oregon welcomes you to our services, events, lectures, Reading Room, and other activities. Our Christian Science Reading Room, located at 6666 SE Milwaukie Avenue in Portland, OR, sells Christian Science literature and offers an ideal space for quiet contemplation and inspiration.  Our services are held online at this time via Zoom.  All are welcome. 

What to Expect at our Services

The core of our Sunday church service is the reading of the Christian Science Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly by two church members elected from our membership who are called “Readers”. The Pastor for all Christian Science churches is the Bible and the companion textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Hymns, scriptural selections, and prayer are other components of the service.

On Wednesdays we listen to readings from the Bible and from Science and Health on a timely topic selected by the First Reader. Then individuals in the congregation share testimonies of healing, gratitude, and spiritual insights gained through their study of Christian Science. We would love to have you join us each week for our services.
