Never too Late to Experience Freedom

Reserve this date! Free Lecture – 2:00 pm Sunday, June 18

You, family and friends are invited to a Christian Science lecture presented by First Church of Christ Scientist, Deland, Florida. The lecture will be held at Deland City Hall – at the corner of W. New York Avenue and S. Florida Avenue, 32720.

The lecture titled, “Never too late to experience freedom” will be given by Patricia Woodward CS, a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

“What is it that gives this kind of lift to our lives? Good news, for one thing.”

“What we’re looking for,” says Ms. Woodard, “is a view that uplifts our thoughts, changing our perspective to one that makes a difference for the better, that heals. To me, this is what Christian Science is about: finding a spiritual perspective of God that reveals the goodness, wellness, and freedom flowing from God every day, helping those take tangible and reliable shape in our lives and the lives of others. That’s the ultimate good news! And what better news than the promise that health and freedom can be ours today. Yes, today!”

Plenty of parking will be available, and child care will be provided. For more information you can call 386-734-6547 or visit:

First ReadersChurch is a call to worship in community. In church, we hear and cherish the Word of God. Here we find comfort and release from oppressive fear, anxiety, disorder, and the world’s constant suggestions of disease. We greet each other in love and in witness to spiritual truth. Our collective spiritual understanding is powerful indeed to break the dreams of sickness, sin, and death. Fear has no place, cannot even exist, where consciousness is filled with thoughts from God.

We are located at 2555 Old Moultrie Road in St. Augustine.  Our Sunday service is held at 10 am  Sunday School classes for young people ages 2-20 are offered at the same time.  Our Wednesday evening service and testimony meeting begins at 6 pm.  Child care is available during Sunday services.

Our Reading Room, a Christian Science bookstore and spiritual outpost, is located inside our church. The Reading Room is open Wednesday evenings from 5-6 pm, the 1st Saturday of each month from 1-3 pm, Sunday after the service, or by appointment. Please call 904-797-8882 x1 to schedule study time at the Reading Room or to purchase an item off regular hours.
