Christian Science Organizations
What is a Christian Science Organization (or CSO)?
Each CSO is unique. But they all are connected by their desire to share Christian Science with their campuses and respond to the desire for a more spiritual approach to college life. Their members include students, faculty, and alumni who regularly gather to talk about Christian Science, share testimonies of healing, and pray about campus problems.
What can CSOs do to help?
There are no limits to what CSOs can do to meet the needs of their college community and each accomplishes this in its own way. To give you an idea of the scope and diversity of CSO work, here is a list of some of the activities CSOs are currently organizing:
- Informational tables at wellness fairs sharing copies of Science and Health and articles of healing
- Informal meetings with discussions, idea sharing, and testimonies
- Regional conferences
- Interfaith panel discussions with Christian Science lecturers and leaders from other religions
- Lectures on Christian Science in women’s history, religion, physics classes and at medical schools
Is there an Org in the Houston area?
Currently, the University of Houston has a room in the A.D. Bruce Religion Center that is used for Christian Science activity. There are a number of Christian Science students on the main campus, and the goal is to have an official Christian Science Organization on campus in the near future.
What are the hours?
The Christian Science room at the A.D. Bruce Religion Center is currently open Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
