Reading Room

Welcome to Our Reading Room

The Reading Room at Third Church is an oasis of spiritual quiet and calm where you may “be still.” It’s a place to be free of distractions. Clear your head. Refocus. We offer many spiritual resources, starting with the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, to help you find healing solutions in your life. Here, in a supportive atmosphere of prayer and meditation, it’s easy to open up to divine influences.

Available to the public, we invite you to use our free resources and study in a “clean, well-lighted place.” You are welcome to borrow or purchase the Bible, books and magazines on spirituality, as well as inspiring music CDs. Our space is equipped with media and technology designed to quench one’s thirst for deeper spiritual understanding and healing. Focused study of the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and the thousands of accounts of Christian Science healing guarantee progress towards a greater understanding of you and your relationship with God.
