Someone asked me to approve a membership application. What do I need to do?
What a joy for a member of The Mother Church to support those who also want to become members! As an approver, you'll want to confirm that the applicant:
• loves the laws of God;
• studies and practices the teachings in the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy;
• meets the requirements for membership outlined in the Manual of The Mother Church on pages 34-39;
• follows the special instructions for filling out the application on pages 109-119.
After an authorized teacher of Christian Science countersigns for you, the teacher mails the application to the Clerk of The Mother Church. The teacher should know you as a loyal Mother Church member, but does not need to know the applicant. Teachers are listed in the directory of The Christian Science Journal.
We'd be delighted to answer any questions. Write to Clerk of The Mother Church; 175 Huntington Avenue, A-232; Boston, MA 02115-3187; U.S.A.; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; fax (617) 450-3490.
