Christian Science Retirement Community Activities

Support for spiritual activities has a high priority at Daystar Retirement Village.  While open and welcoming to residents of all faiths, Daystar has a large population of Christian Scientists and provides a number of supportive activities and services for the Christian Science residents.  Some of these are listed below:

  • A Study Room with bound volumes of the Christian Science Sentinel and Journal, Bibles, the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, The Christian Science Monitor and other resources and study aids. 
  • Computer and internet access to the Weekly Bible Lesson as well as other online study resources.
  • Bible Lesson Reading, Monday through Friday, from 9:15 – 9:50 a.m.
  • A Christian Science sharing meeting on Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m.  Here, residents can listen to a live web chat and the “daily lift” as well as share testimonies of Christian Science healing.
  • A weekly Bible Study on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m.
  • A Christian Science Wednesday meeting at 9:50 a.m. – 10:20 a.m.
  • Wednesday Webcast of the Testimony Meeting at the First Church of Christ Scientist, Boston.

"I hope you know how
much Dad appreciates
the excellent care
he receives from you!"

—Peggy Jamerson, Resident Family Member

"Hey, this is a nice place! It's so
clean! My dad is starting to get
forgetful. It would be great if he
could live here."

—Visiting EMT

"Please express to the staff
how appreciative my mother is
of all the staff, and the help
they provide to her. She wouldn't
get along nearly as well
without the caring
and concern of the Daystar
employees!"

Jason Hart, Resident's Son

I'm so grateful to be at
Daystar, it gets me out
with other people that think
like I do, instead of
sitting in my room.

- Betty, Daystar Resident

"Wow! What a lovely place!
It's so homey and you can
tell people are loved and
cared for here."

—Brenda Oliver, Visiting RN

"She has received such kindness
and so much attention from
everyone that we know without a
doubt that she is safe and well
cared for. We have great trust in
everyone at Daystar and could not
wish for a better place for our
mother. Thank you and thank you
to all concerned."

"Mom is very happy with her
new apartment and the services
she is receiving. Thank you
all for helping us in
this transition."

The thing I like most about
living here is the many
pleasant and smiling faces
that I love!

I like the daily Bible Lesson

Mother Church live
web chats and Wednesday

What could be better?
Daystar is friendly and
homelike, we can do laundry
in our own apartment,
there is shopping across
the street, and there are
good neighbors!

- Helen, Daystar Resident

The staff is very caring
and responds quickly
and efficiently.

- Sharon, Daystar Resident

I want to let you know
about an exceptional employee
here - Vanessa. She is always so
helpful, friendly, concerned,
compentent and a wonderful
caregiver! I always feel reassured
that whatever comes up, she'll
be able to handle everything.

It is always a pleasure to send
