  • Greetings from The Unitarian Church in Westport
  • HOW TO FIND US

 “Love is the spirit of this church, and service its law.
This is our great covenant; to dwell together in peace,
to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.”

  • Unitarian Universalism is a “living tradition” that draws upon the wisdom
  • of the world’s religions. If you asked one of our children what kind of
  • person a Unitarian Universalist is she might tell you that a Unitarian
  • Universalist is a person with an “open mind, helping hands, and loving
  • heart”. An adult might tell you that we affirm, “freedom, reason and
  • tolerance”.

This year Easter and Passover coincide. Rev. Roberta will trace the shared Jewish and Christian story from Palm Sunday through Good Friday to Easter. After the children leave for their Easter activities, Rev. Roberta will consider the crucifixion and resurrection from a UU perspective.

Music: Men's and Women's Choir combined for both services.

Sunday, April 27, 2014 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

“The Saving Role of UU’s in the World” - Bruce Knotts

Sunday, May 4, 2014 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Multigenerational Service: Youth Choir Musical

The Youth Choir will present a musical called "The Three Questions" at both services. This new musical is something the choir has spent the semester working on. It is based on a short story by Tolstoy and, while the simple themes of the story unwind amidst the storyline, the implications of these for our spiritual development are significant. It is a fun and inspiring event for everyone.

Sunday, May 11, 2014 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Celebration of Parenthood with Flower Communion

While many of us are off on retreat at Camp Jewell, Rev. Roberta will honor Mother’s Day with a homily about parenthood from a spiritual perspective.

Child care will be provided; the children will join us in the sanctuary at the end of the service for Flower Communion.

Please bring cut flowers – one for each member of your group plus one extra for visitors (and members who forget to bring flowers).

Music: 9:00: Men’s Choir, 11:00: Women’s Choir.
