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!

Want to know a different way to face change?

Come hear a talk about the role genuine spirituality can play when you’re dealing with it.

What: a Christian Science talk called Spiritual Discovery: How you can better the world, by Tom McElroy*

When: Saturday, November 5, 2-3 pm

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

Come as you are.🙂 Seriously.

Here’s a short clip of Tom talking on this subject:

“Part of what I think spirituality does, is it just obliterates boundaries and limitations that we often perceive ,” he says.

Starting Sunday and for two months, we’ll be holding our service at 351 Centre St, a.k.a. our jointly-maintained Reading Room. We’re pumped to get to share some joint church services with our wonderful friends at 3rd Church of Christ, Scientist, during the months of September and October.

**NOTE: For all of September, our Sunday services will be held at 9:30am – an important time shift! You can’t say we didn’t warn you  😉  but don’t worry, we’ll be sure to keep the reminders coming as we go.

You’ll find us in the grass, close to the corner of Green and Lamartine Streets. Bring your own lawn chairs if you’d like!

P.P.S. This may be our last Sunday-in-the-park this year. Starting next Sunday and for two months, we’ll be holding our service at 351 Centre St, a.k.a. our jointly-maintained Reading Room. We’re pumped to get to share some joint church services with our wonderful friends at 3rd Church of Christ, Scientist, during the months of September and October.
