Welcome to Westside Unitarian Universalist Church. Where open minds and open hearts meet. A place to question, explore, and belong. A community for all seekers of truth and meaning. A place to grow spiritually and make a difference in the world. We hope that you will visit us soon.
This Sunday at 11 a.m.
presented by Rev. Carol Bodeau

Each year, we create a spiral labyrinth in our sanctuary to honor the coming of the winter solstice. We celebrate the darkest time of the year, and the natural magic of darkness met with candlelight, consumerism countered with natural beauty, and the simple ritual of walking a labyrinth path to help us go inward. Afterwards, join us for our holiday party and decorating the building for the holiday season.
Note: Our holiday party follows the service—feel free to bring finger foods or treats to share, and help decorate the building for the holidays.

Unitarian Universalists are Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, atheist and agnostic, believers in God, and so much more.
Westside's Sunday Services are at 11 a.m. and are led by Rev. Carol Bodeau, Westside members, and guest speakers.

Children's Religious Exploration
Note: We are currently exploring ways to retool our RE program in a post-Covid world. At this time, we do not have a Religious Exploration program for children. Children and youth of all ages are welcome to stay in the Sanctuary during the service. Younger children can take advantage of our children's area at the side of our Sanctuary, which features story books, coloring activities, and a few quiet toys.
