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 most every Sunday at 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

Come Dream a Dream with Me

Let us generate ideas for the public church we are becoming. At the heart of the service we will be thinking together about radically awesome ways to make a difference in the lives of the people i Savannah. What table will our church set and for whom?

Come be a part of this important and joyful communal imagining and conversation.

Our Storyteller will be Susan Daggett
Music will be by Kelly Blackmarr and the Choir
Hospitality after the service by Susan Daggett and Ron Cole


Every second Sunday  (Resuming in September)

6:30 pm, Rahn Hall

This is not worship with dinner to follow. It is a worshipful meal in which we share together around a table: word, music, prayer, and physical sustenance.

The meal is simple. A soup, with either meat or vegetarian addition, fresh baked bread and simple wine and juice.

The liturgy is woven throughout the meal time. Please come to to the table of nourishment this church can offer--body and soul together.

This is a good event for those seeking a non-traditional worship experience! Invite people!

If you would like to volunteer to help with this joyful gathering, please send a note to Rev. Dave at
