Striving to be a beacon of love and liberal religion
in the Greater Savannah area

Dear Friends,

We welcome you to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah. 

We are Unitarian Universalists and work together to be a beacon of liberal religion in Savannah.  This means we are bound together in faith by covenant rather than creed.  This means we open ourselves to different sources of knowing about what is most important and true in this world.  This means we work to actively live into the promise of common human worth and dignity.  Most of all, it means that we welcome you to become part of our community, no matter who you are and where you’re coming from.

We intend this web site to be a resource for learning and kicking off the process of getting connected, but we hope you’ll come to join us on a Sunday so we can worship together and share in all the possibilities that brings.  We meet every Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 am  at our Church on Troup Square. 

If you have questions at any time in your journey, just let me know--talking about what we’re creating together is one of my favorite things….

In Faith,

Rev. Dave

Rev. David H. Messner

UUCS Minister
