Admission of new members to The Mother Church – November 2015

- Church News

Dear Members and Friends,

It is a joy and a privilege for me to share news of today’s admission of new members. Admission takes place at a regular business meeting of the Christian Science Board of Directors and is required in the Church Manual.  This morning the Board voted to admit new members to our worldwide church family.

Applications for this admission were received in English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish and were sent to us from the following locations: Angola, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Benin, Brazil, Burundi, Cameroon, Canada, China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cote d'Ivoire, Cuba, Dominican Republic, England, France, Germany, Kenya, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Philippines, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Scotland, South Africa, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Togo, Uganda, United States of America, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

These newest members of our worldwide church family unite with us in making a commitment to the Cause that Mary Baker Eddy referred to as “the greatest and holiest of all causes” (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 177).

As always, our sincere gratitude goes out to all members and Christian Science teachers who support the admission of new members through their prayers and by approving and countersigning applications.

Applications for membership are welcome at any time. The next admission of new members will take place on June 3, 2016. Completed applications must be received by the Office of the Clerk no later than June 1.  

With heartfelt love and appreciation for each of you,

Suzanne Riedel

Clerk of The Mother Church
