Special Sunday 10 am service in the park – TOMORROW 7/9/17

Dear Jamaica Plain community,

The weather for tomorrow looks like it will be glorious, sunny and warm, which is perfect because tomorrow, July 9th, we will be holding a special service in the park at 10 am. (This service is in addition to our regular summer 5:00 pm service at 351 centre st.)

Sunday morning’s church in the park will be held in Mozart park. See map
This is a two minute walk from our Reading Room at 351 Centre St. Cross the street and walk towards Jackson square. The park will be on your right.
Or if you are coming from the Jackson square T stop, walk up the hill (as if you were going to the Reading Room) the park is just past Walden St and across on your left.
Away from the street, towards the back of the park there are steps. This is where we will have our church service.
Comfort: you might want to bring a cushion or folding chair if you have one. We will have blankets to sit on, but this area is concrete. (If you are able to bring an extra chair or cushion that would be welcome).
We will sing hymns, hear a gorgeous solo, and listen to our lesson sermon read from our pastor: the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The subject of this week’s lesson is Sacrement.
All are welcome and warmly invited.
If you are unable to attend in person, you can call into the our service: (605) 475-4000 #636128
We hope to join with you tomorrow.
Love,
JP Church and Third Church, Boston

Hey you!

In case you didn’t catch the latest, for November JP church and  our sister Christian Science church in JP—Third Church, Boston – are teaming up yet again.

To help you keep track of the when and where, here’s a helpful guide for November:

––––––––––––

Location. All of these joint church services are being held in our churches’ shared reading room:

351 Centre St., Jamaica Plain (map)

If you drive, look for parking in the little city parking lot across the street, or check for street parking close by.

Times. Our two churches are taking turns hosting these services. When each church is hosting, they’ll hold the service at the time that’s normal for them. Here’s a full schedule to help you see what those times are:

November
Third Church hosts Sundays; JP Society hosts Wednesdays.

So Sunday church is at 9:30am again for the month of November, Wednesdays are at 7:35.

Call in:  As always we value you, dear people who call in to church. You are a vital part of our congregation and we love that you call in. Know that while you are sharing we are nodding our heads and are ever grateful for your spiritual inspiration you share.

If you’ve never called in, see the number below, dial up and hang on! During the space for announcements we generally pass the phone around in person to give you a sense of who’s in the room and then we have a moment for our phone folks to chime in and say hi and tell us where they’re calling from. 🙂

if you can’t hear us feel free to speak up and let us know!

Where: 351 Centre St., Jamaica Plain (The Christian Science Reading Room and Bookstore)

Come as you are.🙂 Seriously.
