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 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

Justice on Earth
The UUA's Common Read for 2018/19

This highly anticipated anthology presents a powerful and penetrating look at environmental justice from some of the key thinkers and activists in Unitarian Universalism today. Fourteen activist ministers and lay leaders apply a keen intersectional analysis to the environmental crisis, revealing ways that capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and other systems of oppression intersect with and contribute to ecological devastation.

They also explore how spiritual practices, congregational organizing, and progressive theology can inform faith-based justice work in the twenty-first century. These prophetic voices, from a wide range of perspectives, reveal new approaches and opportunities for more holistic, accountable, and connected justice efforts. Each essay is accompanied by suggested ways to take the next steps for further learning and action.
