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

UU Book Club

Tuesday, November 28, 6:00 - 7:30 pm, Rahn Hall

Second and Fourth Tuesdays of every month.  

Join the UU Book Club this November as we read our newest selection, "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States" by Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz. In this narrative history, Dunbar-Ortiz challenges the founding myth of the United States and shows how policy against indigenous peoples was designed to seize the territories of original inhabitants, displacing or eliminating them, and how these acts were praised in popular culture as well as the highest offices of government. Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples' history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative. For all things Book Club related, please email Kelsey Buckner at k[email protected]

Awaken to the Truth of Deep Presence  with Francis Bennett

Dec 2nd and 3rd, 2:00 - 6:00 pm both days

An Adult RE opportunity

Francis Bennett, spiritual teacher and author of the book, I Am That I Am, was a practicing Trappist and Buddhist monk for over thirty years.  During that time, in 2010, she experienced "a radical perceptual shift in consciousness," in which she discovered the abiding presence of spacious, pure awareness.

In this two-day event, Francis will guide us through the stages of awakening and describe how the practices of meditation, surrender and service give rise to those stages and ultimately bring us to a deep, abiding life of awakened consciousness.

Admission: $100 for 2 days, $65 for one.
