*Cancelled* DB Outreach National Event at CedarS Camps
Sep 4 – Sep 7 all-day

the DB National Event at CedarS camps has been cancelled for 2020


After much discussion, evaluation, and humble prayer, we have decided to not proceed with the in-person event at this time. This was not an easy discussion for the DB Outreach and Compass team, and we spent many meetings evaluating our options, but ultimately, we feel this is the right decision. A few of the reasons behind this decision include concerns about travel, group lodging, large group gatherings, and the hindrance on the way we would want to run this event with regard to Christian Science.
We are so grateful for the support of the CedarS staff in making this decision.  They understand this is a very different year for everyone, and fully support our reasoning. We are considering the possibility of partnering together for this event in an upcoming year. 
The Outreach team is already exploring other options for how to reach teens and adults this fall in a meaningful, fun, and inspiring way to take the place of the National Event this year.  We encourage you to check back here soon to see what kind of regional activities are available!

WHO:

Teens: 8th–12th grade (2020-2021 school year) Christian Scientists and your friends of all faiths.

Adults: Christian Science adults and friends

When:

TBA

CANCELLATION POLICY:

DiscoveryBound has cancelled this in-person event, so all registrants will receive a 100% refund of their deposit and payments towards registration costs.  These refunds will be completed by July 10th.

DB Outreach: National Virtual – Christian Science Talk by Tom McElroy, C.S.B.
Sep 18 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

DiscoveryBound Outreach (DBO) is very grateful to be partnering with Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, San Diego in offering this talk. This virtual lecture kicks off DB Outreach’s alternative national event for 2020. Be sure to check out the DB website event calendar to learn more about the DBO in-person events on Saturday, September 19 in a variety of locations across the country. And DBO will be offering additional virtual opportunities.

Download Flyer

The talk will be 30-40 minutes with the opportunity to ask questions immediately afterwards.

Topic: Spiritual discovery: Finding peace and strength in a time of upheaval

Tom McElroy, practitioner of Christian Science healing and international speaker, will present his Zoom webinar talk, “Spiritual discovery: Finding peace and strength in a time of upheaval,” on Friday, September 18 at 5:30 pm PDT. McElroy’s talk is sponsored by Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, San Diego (La Jolla). Everyone is invited to this free talk that will have a teen focus.

This Zoom webinar will focus on comforting and healing precepts found in the Bible, and show how they are available for anyone to understand and experience through the lens of Christian Science.

“Spiritual discovery is about understanding more of what God is and learning to see our lives and the world through God’s all-good nature,” says McElroy. “It’s about stripping away surface-level appearances in order to discern what actually IS. Spiritual discovery reveals what is substantial, lasting, and powerful — and this leads to healing. What’s the outcome? Progress. Peace. Wholeness. Strength. For anyone.”

Sharing examples of healing from his own life and professional practice of Christian Science, McElroy will explain why Christian Science is both Christian and scientific, meaning that people can prove the effectiveness of the spiritual ideals found in the Bible for themselves, as fully described in the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, written by the founder of the Christian Science movement, Mary Baker Eddy.

McElroy will also touch on the life of Mary Baker Eddy, a mid-nineteenth century woman from New England, who came to understand, confirm, and teach what she felt was original Christian healing. Eddy herself said she was especially inspired by Christ Jesus’ demand, “He that believes on me, the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go unto my Father” (found in the Gospel of John 14:12 in the Bible).

For over 150 years, people around the world have worked to follow Christ Jesus in this practice of Christianity and continue to do so today, with healings of physical ills and personal difficulties.

Tom McElroy has been a Christian Science practitioner for many years, helping people on a daily basis through this scientific approach to prayer. In more normal times, he travels from his home base near Boston, MA, to speak to audiences around the world as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.
