Welcome to SouthWest UU Church
A Giving Heart
Many Christmas stories remind us that gifts are never about the actual present, but about the act of giving. In this all community worship we will explore the Christmas theme of the heart that gives through ritual and story (including a play!)
Christmas Eve Service
Join us at 7:30 p.m. for a multigenerational service of carols, stories, and reflection on the meaning of Christmas. Children and youth welcome!
Winter Solstice Meditation
Spirit of winter rest, help us to enjoy your peace in this quiet place.
Remind us to pause during this season.
Grant us awareness, keep our gratitude fresh each day.
May the songs in our heart be blessings and insights to us and to others,
And may compassion always shine forth from the depths of our hearts.
We are a congregation of free faith and religious diversity. We meet to celebrate the miracle of our being and the wonder and mystery of our universe. We seek to provide a caring, accepting community which supports ongoing individual and spiritual growth. We strive to live our values, accepting our individual responsibility to be active in environmental and social concerns in our church, community, and world. And because we share these values, we include the voices and dreams of all who choose to gather with us.

December Social Justice Focus
Guest at Your Table
Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonsectarian organization that advances human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. Guest at Your Table is an annual tradition in which UU congregation members and friends learn about several people with whom UUSC is working. This year, we are featuring people who have empowered others to realize their human rights. These people are our “guests,” and we ask you to share your blessings with them to support our shared mission.
The funds raised through this program support the UUSC’s human-rights work in the United States and around the world. By celebrating Guest at Your Table, you are helping nurture a spirit of gratitude and “justice, equity, and compassion” in human relations.

At SouthWest UUC, our generosity as a congregation earned us recognition this year with a Vision of Justice Banner Society award. Between 50 and 74 percent of our church members made a donation to UUSC last year at this time. The Social Justice Committee will place this banner on display for all to see beginning in December. A heartfelt thanks once again to everyone who contributed to this most worthwhile program; we hope that we can count on your continued support.
