Welcome to West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church

Our faith is a spiritually alive and justice-centered religion. Unitarian Universalists search for truth along many paths. Instead of centering our religion on specific beliefs, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

"Our Mission is to inspire more people to lead lives of meaning and purpose."

Unitarian Universalism: Saving Lives!

Sunday, October 23,10:15 am

Service offered by Rev. Christopher Long 
Rev. Patricia Hart
As Unitarian Universalists and friends of the great, living tradition, we put great trust in the ability of science and medicine to heal our physical bodies in some instances, and rightly so. Let’s explore together what, if any, role our UU Principles and Sources, and UU theologies, play in healing in our lives.
Rev. Christopher Long returns to the Cleveland area after eleven years of being away. He graduated from Starr King School for the Ministry (May 2009), was ordained as a Unitarian Universalist Minister by the First Unitarian Church of Oakland (June 2009), and spent the last seven years in Madison, WI, where he worked at the University of Wisconsin as an Assistant Associate Program Specialist.


Sunday, October 30,10:15 am
Service offered by Rev. Patricia Hart
Kathy Strawser, Worship Leader
In this darkening time of the year, it is fitting to remember beloved friends, family, and even pets that have passed away. For our ritual of remembrance, all are invited to bring a picture or memento of a deceased loved one or pet. What is the power of remembrance?
