Online Broadcasts

All public gatherings of our church are currently online. Live audio from all gatherings is available via the player below. Some gatherings are also available via Zoom. All times are in the U.S. Pacific time zone.
About five minutes before each gathering begins, this player will show our broadcast title (for example "Thanksgiving") and a triangular "play" button will appear to the right. Click or tap on that play button and you should be connected. You won't hear anything until we start. If you don't see the title and play button by the time expected, try reloading this page.
(If you missed the Wednesday meeting, we have an archive of recent recordings. Mixlr also hosts recordings.)

Wednesday Gratitude
An awareness of God's love brings blessings to our lives. And sharing our experiences in finding these blessings brings strength to our practices of healing. You can contribute to the conversation by joining us via Zoom or by emailing your experiences, testimonies, or remarks on Christian Science to fccssunnyvale@gmail.com. We will read written testimonies as part of our next Wednesday broadcast.

Resources
Our Reading Room
Our Reading Room staff continues to love and cherish our community, updating the Bible Lesson and healing articles in our window displays each week. We are also now able to fulfill orders for Reading Room items for pickup or mail order. We have also begun a small "online Reading Room" on our Reading Room web page, featuring articles from the Christian Science periodicals that have particularly uplifted us.

ChristianScience.com
The Mother Church continues to update the page Praying about World Issues. It features inspiring podcasts and video lectures, healing songs, hopeful news coverage, and articles documenting the healing of racism and infectious disease. One item of interest is a new pamphlet Free from Contagion which is available as a free PDF or for purchase in print or e-book formats.
