Camp Welfare Activities

Hospitality Committees to aid servicemen

Opportunities frequently are presented to extend friendly assistance to visiting members of the armed forces at services held by Churches of Christ, Scientist, and Christian Science Societies. A Hospitality Committee whose members are placed at specified stations within the edifice is now functioning in The Mother Church. This committee serves as an informal auxiliary of the Christian Science Camp Welfare Activities, whose main purpose is to provide Workers to minister to the needs of service personnel interested in Christian Science throughout the world and to hospitalized veterans.

Similar hospitality committees have been organized informally in branch churches and societies where military personnel in considerable numbers attend services. The functions of these committees are to make service personnel feel welcome and to acquaint them with various places of interest in the community. Furthermore, the names of individuals who wish to invite service men and women to meals at their homes can be made known to members of these committees.
