"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows."
- Psalm 23:5 NRSV
The Christian Science church, independent museums about Mary Baker Eddy, Christian Science camps, musicians, and Bible scholars all offered special programs during the stay-at-home government directives. These online programs were so popular that the church and its related organizations have continued an online presence. These activities are in addition to regular Sunday and Wednesday church services and Sunday School. A sampling of upcoming events is listed in the calendar above. In the paragraphs below is a somewhat alphabetical sampling of special events which have been recorded and are available on replay. Some recurring events, such as monthly hymn sings, and special online resources are also included.
