Church By-laws

Loyal Christian Scientists whose teachers are deceased, absent, or disloyal—or who, for insufficient cause would refuse to endorse their applications for membership with the Mother Church—can apply to the Clerk of this Church and present to him a recommendation signed by three members thereof in good standing therewith. After which, the unanimous vote of the First Members that are present at the meeting shall admit said applicant to membership.

The Publication Committee shall consist of males only, and shall be appointed by the First and Second Readers of the Church employing said committee. If prior to its meeting for electing church officers, the Pastor Emeritus shall send to the First Reader of a church the name of a candidate for its Publication Committee, this Reader shall appoint said candidate. The female incumbents shall immediately resign this office and males shall be elected to fill the vacancy. It is by no means an office befitting a woman.
