The Christian Science Organization (CSO) at the University of Houston is a student-run group on campus. We work together to find a spiritual approach to all aspects of campus life through the practical teachings of The Holy Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, the textbook of Christian Science.

Room 105 in the AD Bruce Religion Center is open to study (school work, the Bible, and Christian Science writings), to grab a snack or something to drink and to hang out with other students. During meetings there is ample time to discuss how to apply a concept of God, divine Love, to your life. Generally, we have meetings once a week or times that accommodate students’ schedules.

There are opportunities to both attend and host inspiring talks on campus. We encourage activities such as movie nights, Sunday lunches, bowling, and pizza get-togethers at the CSO, and we are open to new ideas to reach out to the student body.

We look forward to seeing you in Room 105 soon!

If you have any questions about the specifics of the University of Houston CSO please give the Resident Minister, Christian Scientist, George M. Nutwell III, at 281-386-4546.

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.
