March 16 Update

Effective March 16 in accordance with the city of Dallas request for faith communities, we will temporarily stop all in-person events.

  • In-person Sunday services, Sunday School, and Wednesday meetings will be put on hold. However, we are working on arrangements to have audio access available to anyone who wishes to attend Sunday services and Wednesday meetings remotely.  These will be complete services and meetings, including readings, music, hymns, solos on Sundays, and testimonies on Wednesdays. We will update this page with information when it becomes available.
    • Hymnals will be available to borrow from the Reading Room, and you can make arrangements with the Reading Room Librarian.
    • Sunday collection will still be accepted via mail and online through Paypal.
  • The Reading Room will be closed to the public and all small group meetings will be canceled.  However, the Reading Room librarian and assistant librarians will continue to be available to answer inquiries and make arrangements for purchases or loans of Reading Room materials.  You may contact the Reading Room at 214-352-5250 or by email to readingroom@thirdchurchdallas.org.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.  You may contact the Clerk (Linda Miller at 724-467-0997) or anyone on the Board and we will do our best to answer your questions.

Thank you in advance for your patience as we work through these details.  While circumstances are changing rapidly, and things may seem to be unsettled at the moment, we can all take comfort in the fact that “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.”  Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 494.

Finally, and most importantly, no one should feel isolated from their church family or go without their needs being met during this time.  If you have a need, or know someone in our church family who does, please be in touch with the Clerk and we will do everything we can to provide assistance.

“Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Ps. 91:9–11

200216 Philip Hockley Lecture

When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn’t why our speaker, Phillip Hockley, attended a lecture for the first time; he didn’t expect to walk out a new person. But Phillip found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming.

Christian Science gave him a new view of God that he’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself. He also discovered that this loving God was not the source of his troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. His life began to improve quickly after that, and he became a healthy man after many years of suffering.

When: Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 2 p.m.
Come at 1:30 p.m. to hear music by Third Church organist Chris Crook

Where: Third Church of Christ, Scientist, 4419 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219

About the Speaker

Mary Alice’s interest in science and technology led to a 20-year career in different areas of applied physical science. Through those years, her love for God permeated every aspect of her daily work. Whether supporting research by tornado chasers as a meteorologist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Oklahoma, making live broadcasts during severe weather outbreaks on NOAA Weather Radio, troubleshooting operational software at sea as an engineer and researcher in underwater acoustics, or co-managing a division of 140 engineers and scientists in development of the ground system for the Hubble Space Telescope, prayer was her constant guiding and motivating force.

As interesting as her career was, Mary Alice found that she wanted more time to focus on her most rewarding scientific endeavor: exploring her relationship with God. So, in 2002, Mary Alice made the transition from manager, engineer, and earth scientist to the full-time ministry as a Christian Science practitioner, where divine guidance continues to be her mainstay as she helps people every day in praying about such challenges as careers, finances, health, and relationships. She is also an authorized teacher of this Science and has had a number of articles published in the Christian Science periodicals.

She has given talks on Christian Science to interfaith groups and college comparative religion classes for twenty years, and, since 2010, she has been speaking to a broader range of audiences as an international speaker on the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
