WSUU is a welcoming community. We look forward to your visit!
Each Sunday service begins at 10:30 am with the sound of a large ancient temple bell. We use it to settle in for what can be a lively, contemplative, humorous, evocative and spiritual growth experience each Sunday. The Six Sources and the Seven Principles are a primary source of our interpretation of what scriptures can mean from many religious and secular traditions. Our minister generally speaks two times each month and on other Sundays we have clergy and laypeople as guest speakers on a wide range of topics.
Notes on accessibility:
Mobility: Individuals who find it difficult to use stairs can access our sanctuary via our new lift. Please park in the parking lot and enter the social hall. The lift is in the northeast corner of the room. We have greeters in this area each Sunday to help newcomers learn how to operate the lift.
Support for listening to services: Westside has assisted listening devices available for checkout with our greeters.
Large Print Hymnals and Orders of Service are available from our greeters each Sunday.
Fragrance Sensitivity: Please note that Westside is a fragrance free congregation. Please refrain from using scented soaps, hair products, lotions as we have members that suffer in the presence of these fragrances.
Members and visitors are invited to attend social hour in the church basement after services to conversations. During this re-opening time, while masking is required, we will not be serving food or drink during social hour. We encourage you to stay for this time, and have conversations with friends old and new!
