First Church of Christ, Scientist, Chagrin Falls and First Church of Christ, Scientist, Chardon, are sponsoring a talk to be held at 11 a.m. June 8 at the Chagrin Falls Township Hall, 83 N. Main St.

Mark McCurties, a practitioner of Christian Science healing, will present a free talk titled, "How God’s love can change your life and the world." 

The ideas in this lecture are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

After graduating from college, McCurties spent a number of years in the field of education, where he worked as a camp director, experiential educator, resident counselor, and athletics coach. While working with young people, he had many opportunities to witness the healing power of God, and these experiences eventually led him into the full-time public practice of Christian Science.

Mark McCurties is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. He travels from his home in Ann Arbor, Mich.
