Discovery at Tenacre

“Discovery” is a series of talks, workshops, and seminars that provide opportunities for students of Christian Science to explore the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and other inspiring topics. These programs are offered free of charge.

The Discovery theme comes from the message of the lights which were part of the Christian Science exhibition at the New York World’s Fair in 1965:


can happen any time, any place


but especially here.

The lights are currently located on the Tenacre campus.
