What is Unitarian Universalism, Anyway?

Unitarian Universalists are Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, atheist and agnostic, believers in God, and more.


Westside's Sunday Services are at 10 a.m. and are led by Rev. Carol Bodeau, Westside members, and guest speakers. Topics reach beyond religious texts to include a rich variety of life’s concerns, addressed with intelligence, inspiration, and wit. After the service, please join us for coffee and conversation. Our adult Religious Exploration time begins after our coffee time.

You are welcome at Westside! Learn more about Westside and Unitarian Universalism here. Meet our Minister, Rev. Carol Bodeau, here.
