This Sunday at 10 a.m. Outdoors at Westside:
presented by Rev. Carol Bodeau & Chris Edkins
Zoom service offered at 11 a.m.
Virtual Coffee Hour Begins at ≈ 11:30 a.m. on Zoom
Before March of 2020, we may have casually considered using technology to widen the circle of our Westside message, but, since then, like many others, we have been forced willy-nilly into the world of virtual church services. What have we learned that will allow us to better fulfill our mission as Unitarian Universalists, and what positive lessons can we carry forward to improve our in-person and on-line church experiences?
How Our Outdoor Services Work
Our in-person, outdoor service begins at 10 a.m., weather permitting. Check the weather and use your best judgement on attending. In the event of closure, we will update this website and social media channels as soon as possible. Members will be contacted through email channels as well.
Please bring your own chair.
Wear a mask and plan to social distance.
Our restrooms will be open to all. One person will be allowed into the building at a time. Volunteer monitors will be stationed at the back entrance to allow access through the Adult RE room.
Our Zoom service begins at 11am, followed by Zoom coffee hour for all.
Can't Attend Our Outdoor Service? Join us for our Zoom Services! 11 a.m. on Sundays
Our Sunday services are conducted by Zoom video-conferencing, so that we can interact in many of the ways we are used to for our worship time together. A password is required to attend our Zoom service. Complete Our Connection Card to Request Access to Zoom.
Please allow 2-3 days for a response to your request. Our Membership Coordinator will be in touch with you and respond during office hours (Sundays 9-2, Tuesdays 12-5, Thursdays 12-5).
After the service on Sunday, join us for our "coffee hour" from ≈11:30-12:00 on the same Zoom meeting.

If you are curious about Westside but don't want to sign up for our interactive Zoom service, you can now view the live stream on YouTube. If we cannot live stream, we will make every attempt to post an edited version of the service on YouTube.

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.
