Welcome to West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church

Our faith is a spiritually alive and justice-centered religion. Unitarian Universalists search for truth along many paths. Instead of centering our religion on specific beliefs, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

"Our Mission is to inspire more people to lead lives of meaning and purpose."

Upcoming Sunday Sermons

Missing Peace

Sunday, February 14, 10:15 am

Service offered by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz

On the cultural holiday when loving relationships are celebrated, single people can feel left out. Whether you are partnered or single, all of us will ultimately lose those we love the most, so it makes a difference now how we think and feel about what our most intimate loving relationships really mean in our lives. Are they the “missing piece” that completes us, or are we “missing peace” by expecting that we can’t be whole within ourselves?

Creating Sanctuary

Sunday, February 21,10:15 am

Offered by Holly Mueller and Layne Richard-Hammock

What is sanctuary? How does sanctuary look in community? Our West Shore CARE covenant stands for Courtesy, Acceptance, Respect, and Engagement—core elements of creating a shared space of comfort and challenge, a place in which we as a community can grow our spiritual selves. This service will include the Junior Choir and Time For All Ages.

The World the Adults are Leaving Us

Sunday, February 28, 10:15 am

Service offered by Junior Church and Youth Group
