Welcome to First Church of Christ, Scientist, Warren, Pennsylvania. Our church is located at 312 Market Street (corner of Market Street & Fourth Avenue).
You are warmly invited to attend our Sunday morning services with us at 10:30 a.m. where we listen to scriptural readings from the Bible and from our textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, sing hymns and pray silently.
Our Sunday School is for young people up to the age of 20, and is held at the same time as our Sunday services.
Every Wednesday evening, we have testimony meetings at 8:00 p.m. Following readings from the Bible and Science and Health, those attending share remarks and tell how they’ve used Christian Science to heal illnesses and solve other problems.
Child care is lovingly provided at all our services. Please come visit us; we would love to have you.
Our church is among approximately 2,000 branch churches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which was established by Mary Baker Eddy when she discovered and endeavored to preserve and extend this Bible-based system of healing through prayer.
Here's a bit of history about our church:
Christian Science has been a presence in the Warren community for over 100 years. On January 2nd, 1892, a small group of earnest students of Christian Science met informally for church services, until they formally organized as the Christian Science Society of Warren, Pennsylvania on March 7th, 1907. Services were held at 905 Pennsylvania Avenue from 1907-1910. The congregation then moved to 137 Conewango Avenue, which remained headquarters until 1914, when it moved to the third floor of 221 Liberty Street, presently the Watt Office Supply building.
In October of 1919, the organization was chartered under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, thus becoming the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Warren, Pennsylvania.
In 1929, the church purchased the property at 312 Market Street, where it presently holds Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services, in addition to operating a reading room and bookstore open to the public. The first service at this location was held Wednesday evening, January 1st, 1930.
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free".
