TMC Youth update

The Mother Church continues to put a great deal of thought and prayer into ways the Church can embrace the next generation in its healing mission. As a result, there has been an important development in The Mother Church’s youth initiative, outlined in the following letter from the Clerk’s Office.

From the February 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Dear Members and Friends of The Mother Church,  Mary Baker Eddy had a grand vision for youth in her movement. In her Church Manual , she invited those twelve and older into active church membership ( Article IV, Section 3 ); she asked every branch church to nurture youth in their communities through Sunday Schools ( Article XX ); and she encouraged the presence of Christian Science on college and university campuses through Christian Science organizations ( Article XXIII, Section 8 ).
