This church is among approximately 2,000 branch churches of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, which was established by Mary Baker Eddy when she discovered and endeavored to preserve and extend this Bible-based system of healing through prayer.
Here’s a bit of history about our church:
Our church has been in Mount Vernon for over 100 years. From 1906-1908 early Christian Scientists of Mount Vernon met in homes to conduct their services. By 1909 larger quarters were required and services began at the Odd Fellows Hall.
In 1912 a member donated a building site as an expression of gratitude for the the healing of his wife. In April of 1913 the Mount Vernon group of Christian Scientists became formally recognized as a Christian Science Society.
In 1950 a meeting of the membership was held to consider an attractive offer from the adjoining Salem Lutheran Church to buy the church property. The purchase of a lot on 6th and Cedar Streets was accomplished in April of 1950. The dedication took place on December 9, 1951, and we are still housed at this location.
