Church By-law

Art. XVIII., Sect. 4.—There shall be a Committee on Finance which shall consist of three First Members of this Church in good standing therewith. Its members shall be appointed annually by the Christian Science Board of Directors and with the consent of the Pastor Emeritus. They shall hold quarterly meetings, and keep themselves thoroughly informed as to the real estate owned by this Church, and the amount of funds received by the Treasurer of the Mother Church, who is individually responsible for said fund. They shall attend to having the books of the Christian Science Board of Directors, and the books of the Church Treasurer, audited annually by an honest, competent accountant.

Prior to paying all bills against the Church, the Treasurer of this Church shall submit the same to said committee for examination,—and this committee shall decide thereupon by a unanimous vote, and their endorsement of the bills shall render them payable.

The books are to be audited on May first, and shown to the Pastor Emeritus on May fifteenth.
