Our mission is to love and live the Science of the Christ, to follow Christ Jesus’ words and works. It’s a mission to which we are deeply committed, as well as a mission that we’re earnestly committed to sharing. That commitment is expressed in a variety of current ministries, or services, described here. The purpose of each of these ministries is to help individuals focus on finding and living answers to the question, “How can I more effectively demonstrate the truths of Christian Science?” The answers that come to light result in spiritual growth, restoration, and healing.
Christian Science Nursing
An expression of the ever-present divine Comforter, Christian Science nursing is central to our ministry. As dedicated Christian Scientists, we have committed ourselves to demonstrating this healing outreach in accord with Mary Baker Eddy’s bylaw for the Christian Science nurse in the Church Manual.
Christian Science Nursing Homecare
With a Christian visit, the Christian Science nurse shares brotherly love and compassion, reading the weekly Bible Lesson, reading from the Christian Science periodicals, “embracing humanity” (Science and Health, p. 561:17) with each visit.
School of Christian Science Nursing
We provide educational opportunities and resources for members of The Mother Church who would like to deepen their understanding of and obedience to the By-law for the Christian Science nurse in the Church Manual.
Our philanthropy ministry is an outreach of God’s love for all humanity. Because Tenacre is primarily a Christian Science nursing organization, we strive for our philanthropy ministry to express the same tender, healing care for everyone that a Christian Science nurse brings to individuals.
Discovery at Tenacre
“Discovery” is a series of talks, workshops, and seminars that will provide opportunities for students of Christian Science to explore the Bible, the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and other inspiring topics.
Our Christian Scientists-in-Residence program invites active Christian Scientists to join a community bound together by their love of Christian Science and desire to participate in Tenacre’s mission and ministry.
Tenacre Spiritual Resource Library
Our Library offers an extensive selection of Bible and Christian Science-related resources to help promote vigorous and penetrating Bible study.
Tenacre Visitor Accommodations
Visitors come to Tenacre for a variety of reasons. Whatever your reason for visiting Tenacre, it’s our hope that you leave with a deepening sense of God’s peace and love.
