Music is an important part of Christian Science services. The congregation sings from the Christian Science Hymnal, 1932 and 2017 editions. The services are accompanied by a three manual Ahlborn-Galanti Praeludium III digital organ equipped with a ProteusFX sound module and a 5' 3" Yamaha GC1 piano.

A distinctive feature of Christian Science churches is the solo that is chosen to highlight some aspect of each week's Bible Lesson-Sermon.

Music styles vary from classical to contemporary. Chorale preludes based on the hymns sung in the services are often presented as part of the prelude music.

Everyone is welcome to arrive early for the prelude music and join with others in prayerful preparation for the services.

"Sing to the Lord a joyful song,
Lift up your hearts, your voices raise;
To us His gracious gifts belong,
To Him our songs of love and praise.
