RUF is a place for the convinced and the unconvinced, the churched and un-churched, the burned, the bored, the run-down, or the refreshed. It is a place to bring your doubts and your questions to understand more about Christianity and what the radical love of Jesus is all about. No matter who you are or what you believe you are welcome to join us as we gather to love God, to love people, and to love the University of Houston.

Large Group, Wednesday NIghts 8pm - 9:30pm

Come join us as we eat, worship, and hear teaching on the parables of Jesus. The parables are stories Jesus told to challenge his hearers on their views of God, work, race, money, prayer, purpose, evil, lostness, and more. These powerful stories run counter to lots of our views of God and of life itself. All are welcome!

* Food will be offered from 8pm-8:30pm.

Theology Study

We'll be reading and discussing Paul Copan's "Is God a Moral Monster?" to answer some hard questions about God in the Old Testament: does he dislike women? does he support slavery? does he support genocide? what about those weird food and clothing laws?

Time: Fridays at 11am

Location: Student Center, top floor in the Museum District room

Prayer group

Whether you consider yourself a "pray-er" or not, whether you have prayed for years or don't know how to at all, you're welcome in this group. The fact remains that God actually hears us when we talk to him; he actually does things when we ask him. Please join us as we pray together each week.

Time: Thursdays (subject to change)
