Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, KY


It’s the last week - all pledges needed now! - We’re still $70,000 short of our $300,000 goal with 63% of member pledges received. For those who have not yet pledged, we need to hear from you this week. Every gift, large or small, makes a difference. Here’s what to do:

  • Pledge online now to help us get an early start toward reaching our goal of $300,000.
  • Pick up a pledge card from the Stewardship table in the Foyer before or after service on Sunday.
  • Read our Vision Statement for more details on how the 2018 budget will be used.
  • Check out the UUA Fair Share Contribution Guide to learn more about practical giving guidelines

Join our Welcoming Team - We are looking for another Greeter to serve on the 4th Sunday of each month during the 2017-2018 church year.
