Happy Easter! Please click here for this year's Easter Letter from Reverend Donna Gatewood.


Dear Church Family and Friends,

Please be advised that your Church Ministers and Board of Trustees have decided it prudent to extend the suspension of all Church Group gatherings through the entire month of April 2020.

Again, this closing includes the Tuesday evening gatherings, Sunday services, and group classes.  Resumption of Group activities shall take place when prudent, and consistent with federal and local mandate. Of course, given future conditions, the suspension of Group activities could extend beyond the end of April 2020.  Regardless, you shall be kept informed.

The Church office and bookstore is scheduled to be open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Rev. Wayne Gatewood shall be in the office to accept visitors and handle administrative matters.  Please feel free to stop in if you care to do so, but please call in advance.

For those of you that are local, that have no family/friends/neighbors that can assist, and are dealing with conditions beyond your control and cannot leave your residence to procure needed groceries or medical supplies and prescriptions, please call one of the Church ministers.  Your Ministers and Board members shall coordinate action to assist you in such instances.

In addition to the availability of recorded Church Lessons on our Church website www.divinescience.org, the Church Dial-A-Prayer is ongoing, and all of your Ministers are available for prayer or counseling and can be reached at the numbers below:

Love and Blessings,

Rev. Janet Friedline
Rev. Donna Gatewood
Rev. Wayne Gatewood

Divine Science is based on the changeless truth that God constitutes the nature of all being and that God fills the invisible and visible realms of existence. This truth has never changed. All truth is as available to man now as it was to Moses, Elijah and Jesus. Nothing man does or fails to do will ever separate him from the Source out of which he was created. Paul reminds us, "in Him we live, and move and have our being."

One of the founders of Divine Science writes that "true prayer is not begging for more wisdom, more supply, or more good. Infinite, all-embracing Being cannot give us more than Itself. In sharing Itself with us It has given us all that we can possibly need. Our part is to accept."

Divine Science teaches that the fullness of Spirit is forever pouring Itself through the mind of man, limited only by the way man thinks and feels about life in general and about certain conditions and situations in particular. Therefore, all change begins as an activity in mind and through the law of cause and effect mind manifests as a personal experience.

The physical evidence of any teaching lies not in the authority or history of an organization, but in the ability of an individual to prove the teaching. And so it is that Divine Science is recognized as a teaching organization. Therefore, in order to fulfill its raison d'être, a course of study in the Principle on which Divine Science is founded is offered through the Divine Science Church in Washington, DC.
