A student at the Unitversity of Texas did a capstone project on Christian Science Architecture and specifically the First Church of Christ, Scientist Austin which was the first Christian Science Church built in Texas. To watch this very interesting presentation click here
Our Reading Room Boutique located in the front entry of our church got a much needed update. It all started when our new “You are Loved Mural” needed to find a new home. Its place on the wall in the Sunday school did not allow it to be viewed to its full advantage. It was decided that the painting would be moved out to the Boutique so it could be seen and enjoyed by all.
When the painting got moved, the whole area became brighter and more inviting. The sisal flooring which had been damaged by a water leek has been replaced. (The leak is repaired) New fresh furniture has replaced the worn out furniture. The walls and shelving have been repainted. The new boutique is now a light and bright inviting space to greet all who come through our doors with “You Are Loved”!
A generous donation has been received to more than cover the costs.

Join your DiscoveryBound friends in Seattle WA or Philadelphia PA for a fun weekend. Fasten your seatbelts and hang on for a great day of solving clues and finding sites in the city of your choice! Just like on The Amazing Race, you and your team will jump in a car (driven by an adult chaperone), decipher clues using teamwork, and hit the road in search of fun exploring the Philadelphia or Seattle area. The weekend includes games, an inspirational speaker, all-day road rally with fun photo ops, meeting new friends, hang time, and Sunday School.
Hymns are a vital part of The Christian Science Church services and a source of inspiration that heals. In 2017, a new expanded Hymnal supplement will be released by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston. If you would like to check on the progress of this new Hymnal, go to the Hymns 2016 section of JSH- ONLINE.
Right now, you can purchase the CD “Celebrations” that features these new hymns at the Fifth Church Reading Room/ Book Store.
