"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." - Luke 2:14

"The basis of Christmas is the rock, Christ Jesus; its fruits are inspiration and spiritual understanding of joy and rejoicing, — not because of tradition, usage, or corporeal pleasures, but because of fundamental and demonstrable truth, because of the heaven within us. The basis of Christmas is love loving its enemies, returning good for evil, love that “suffereth long, and is kind.” - The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 260:17–23

Driving Directions: If you are arriving from the west (Metairie), we are conveniently located one block east of the end of Veterans Blvd. If you are taking the expressway, exit at West End Blvd, and then turn right at the first light which is Polk Avenue. We are on the first block on the right with parking behind the church.
About Our Services: We have felllowship and joyous hymn singing similar to other churches, but what is different is that our Pastor is two books, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. We elect members of the congregation to read from our Pastor, and during our Wednesday service, we also include testimonies of healing shared by members and guests.
