The Christian Science Organization (CSO) is a student-run group on campus. We have a common desire to bring healing to campus issues and make the ideas in Christian Science more accessible to our campus communities. The room in the AD Bruce Religion Center is open to study (school work, the Bible, and Christian Science writings), grab some cool to drink, and hang out with other students. During the meetings there is ample time to talk about how to apply a divine concept of Love to your life. Generally we have meetings once a week. Check the bulletin board for updates and activities.

There are opportunities to both attend and host inspiring talks on campus. Movie nights, bowling, pizza get-togethers (or anything that the group decides) are ways that the CSO can join together.

The main reason and purpose of the CSO is to prayerfully embrace the college campus through a church supported organization. For more information on what Christian Science is, take a look at: Christian Science Organization

If you have any questions about the specifics of the University of Houston CSO please give the Resident Minister, Christian Scientist, Sue Merrill, at 281-808-3731 or email her at sue@doesprayerheal.com.

Our ministry is open to all students, and our mission is to help them know the merciful and just God who created and sustains the world. We study the scriptures, pray, sing, and serve together each week, but we are far from perfect. We welcome your struggles, your doubts, and your questions. We coordinate a free lunch in the A.D. Bruce atrium for close to 200 students every Wednesday during Fall and Spring semesters. We also offer individual and group Bible studies in English and Mandarin, along with other activities (game nights, retreats, service projects, conferences, and more). Feel free to stop by for a free Bible anytime. Your life matters, so we invite you to search out it’s purpose with other sojourners at the Point - because life is a mystery until you get it.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
