Lake Shore Unitarian Society

(847) 807-5787

For over 50 years, we have brought people of diverse beliefs together in a community of shared values. Our weekly services are not led by clergy. Instead, we invite highly regarded speakers to present on a wide range of topics that provide inspiration and deeper appreciation for the world in which we live. We focus on values and wisdom drawn from many sources, not dogma. As a Unitarian Universalist congregation, we affirm and promote UU’s seven Principles, such as “we accept one another and encourage each individual’s spiritual growth”. Music is another source of spiritual inspiration in our weekly services. And our Religious Explorations program provides children and teens spiritual and cultural literacy. Sunday service and Religious Explorations class at 10:30 a.m., September through May. Visitors are always welcome.
