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

Come Out and Play - Religion as Make-Believe

Reverend Fred Howard

The title of this sermon might sound a bit irreverent, but there is a sound theological basis to the idea of religion as play. Cultural theorists and anthropologists have noted with fascination the elements of human behavior that make us playful are also those that make religion possible. Religion only fulfills its purpose when it functions as a sort of sacred play.

Rev. Dr. Fred Howard has roots deep in Georgia soil.  He was born and raised in Macon, attended Valdosta State College and then the Medical College of Georgia, and practiced medicine as a family physician in Cairo and Douglas for twenty years.  In 2002 he heard the call to ministry and closed his medical practice, moved to Atlanta, and began studies at Candler School of Theology.  For the past ten years Fred has served as minister of the Valdosta UU Church.  He also continues to work part time in the medical field as an emergency room physician.
He is author of Transforming Faith: Stories of Change from a Lifelong Spiritual Seeker, recipient of numerous awards including the coveted Nautilus Book Award.  More recently he published Children of Covenant, an intriguing and informative suspense novel that will be of special interest to UUs.
