About Us

CSWashington.com

CSWashington.com is the statewide Christian Science web portal from the Washington State Outreach Committee (WSOC). It’s intended to be the ‘one URL to remember’ to reach every Christian Science website in Washington — and a helpful springboard for Washington residents who want to know more about Christian Science.

We also maintain a Facebook page and a Twitter feed. Follow us, friend us, and stop by often to see what’s new!

What is WSOC?

The committee was original known as the Washington State Broadcast Committee. It was founded in 1993 by Christian Science churches in Western Washington to air The Christian Science Sentinel: Radio Edition in Seattle.

As Sentinel Radio evolved into Sentinel Watch, the Broadcast Committee evolved into the Washington State Outreach Committee. Now we have a truly statewide focus — connecting listeners across Washington with Sentinel Watch, Daily Lift, and other programs produced by the Christian Science Publishing Society. While we no longer air a program on AM or FM radio, we make Sentinel Watch available through this website (on computers and mobile devices) and several phone lines.

Our other activities include:

  • Maintaining and improving CSWashington.com (which includes the CSPS Internet Radio Player, a calendar of lectures and other events, and a directory of Christian Science churches, societies and Reading Rooms around the state)
  • Managing social media (regular posts to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
  • Offering Sentinel Watch and the Bible Lesson by phone via five local phone lines
  • Providing technology coaching and mentoring to branch churches and societies that request it
  • Exploring promotion online and on the radio

WSOC continues to explore ways to share Christian Science via online and mobile channels. Administration is handled by a small executive committee representing a variety of Christian Science churches in the state. We are supported — with financial contributions, volunteers and prayer — by branch churches, societies and individual Christian Scientists throughout Washington.
