C.S. Lectures

Save the date for a talk on Christian Science on Saturday July 1, 2023 – 2 pm

“How spiritual perception brings healing” by Alexandre Fischer CS

Petoskey and Charlevoix Christian Science Churches offer a talk for the public by Alexandre Fischer CS of Pau, France at the Charlevoix Public Library Community Meeting Room 220 Clinton Street, Charlevoix | Saturday July 1, 2023 2 pm. Free.

The talk will focus on universal healing precepts found in the Holy Bible, especially in Christ Jesus’ life and teachings, showing how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science. The talk is free, open to the community, and sponsored by First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Petoskey and the Christian Science Society, Charlevoix.

“We are not stuck!” encourages Fischer. “Understanding more clearly our relationship with God, infinite good, ends fear and leads the way forward.”

Sharing examples of healing from his own life and professional practice of Christian Science, Fischer will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove its effectiveness for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

Fischer will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, who came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, experiencing healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.

Alex Fischer has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer.  He travels from his home base in the southwest of France to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

Welcoming you

Spring is Sprung, Easter Gladness

You are welcome here!

Come celebrate ALL that is new. Let us sing of Easter gladness….

Let us sing of Easter gladness
That rejoices every day,
Sing of hope and faith uplifted;
Love has rolled the stone away.
Lo, the promise and fulfillment,
Lo, the man whom God hath made,
Seen in glory of an Easter
Crowned with light that cannot fade.

When we touch Truth’s healing garment
And behold Life’s purity,
When we find in Love the refuge
That is man’s security,
When we turn from earth to Spirit,
And from self have won release,
Then we see the risen Saviour;
Then we know his promised peace.

Living meekly as the Master,
Who of God was glorified,
Looking ever to the radiance
Of his wondrous Eastertide;
Freed of fear, of pain, and sorrow,
Giving God the honor due,
Every day will be an Easter
Filled with benedictions new.
