Join us this Sunday morning at 11!

The service topic:

Welcome to Westside!

With the health and well-being of our Members and friends in mind, and under the advisement of the UUA, our building will remain closed for services and events.

We are now offering outdoor services on specified Sundays at 10 a.m.

August 9, August 23, September 6 (our Water Communion), September 20, October 4, October 18, and November 1. We will meet on the lawn of our facility (weather permitting) from 10-10:30 a.m.  We will sit in family units 6 feet apart, prefer masks if possible, and the building will remain closed (so no bathroom use).  Please bring your own portable chair if possible. In case of rain, outdoor services will be postponed to the following week.


New Zoom Services! 10 a.m. on specified Sundays

On the weeks that we are not meeting outside, our Sunday services will be conducted by Zoom video-conferencing, so that we can interact in many of the ways we are used to for our worship time together. Passwords and/or registration will be required to attend Zoom worship. These will occur on August 16, August 30, September 13, September 27, October 11, and October 25. Use Our Contact Form to Request an Invitation

Adult Religious Exploration Classes Coming Soon

Starting in September, Membership Coordinator Wendy Weiss and Rev. Bodeau will resume leading a variety of Adult RE offerings, including returning to our Building Your Own Theology series, and our Compassionate Conversations gatherings.  We will also offer some content-based curricula from the UUA, and are strongly considering offering the course developed by the denomination that goes with this year’s common read, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’s An Indigenous People’s History of the United States. See our website, newsletter and social pages for updates.

Small group connections for all interested members

We are devising new ways to participate in a small-group based system that will allow us all to stay in touch with each other through the coming months.  Members, please watch your email and snail mail for that information. New friends and visitors, contact us.
