Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the services?

Both the 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services are approximately 1 hour in length.

What should I wear?

Casual or dressy-casual are both acceptable. No head-covering is required.

How do I recognize the church?

We are the church with the large round window on the front of our brick building. When traveling toward Airline Hwy. from the Chevelle Drive traffic light you see our electronic sign and a large brick building with a very large circle window in its peak on the right. Traveling from Airline Hwy. toward downtown, after the Tara Blvd. traffic light you see our church on the left.

What do I do after I arrive?

You will be greeted by members who want to make you welcome. The sanctuary where the worship services are held is to your left; the Fellowship Hall where we meet after each service for coffee and snacks and conversation is to the right.  Directional signs and a stream of people will lead you. You will be given a program in the sanctuary foyer and you may go inside and sit where you are most comfortable. Restrooms and water are to the right after you enter the foyer. Listening assist devices and large print hymnals and Orders of Service are available in the lobby.

Families are welcome in our services! Your child can stay with you during service or you may choose to take them to our nursery for infants and children under 3. Ask a greeter for directions. We have classes for preschool through 5th grade at the 9:30 a.m. service and preschool through high school at the 11:15 a.m. service.  Children attend the first portion of the worship services with their families and friends. After the opening rituals, they are welcome to stay in the service or leave for their classrooms with their teachers.


Ours is a no-smoking, no-alcohol, no-firearms campus, please.

The book How to Be a Perfect Stranger Vol. 2: A Guide to Etiquette in Other People's Religious Ceremonies includes a section on Unitarian Universalism with many answers on customs and practices. In general, most Unitarian Universalist services are quite informal in relation to the majority of places of worship.
