Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, KY


We are building a caring community, open to all, that treasures free thought, joyful celebration, life-long learning and generous service.

OUR Mission

We live our U.U. values by acting for human dignity and equality and environmental justice for all creatures.

OUR Purpose

We welcome all without regard to race, creed, age, economic status, physical ability, gender expression, or sexual orientation. These are some of the categories that have divided, rather than united, people of faith.

Please Join Us for Our Sunday Service: November 29, 11 a.m. "Being Direct." Worship Leader: Brian Chenowith. (Childcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9 a.m. on Sundays.)

Read our Covenant of Right Relations adopted at May 31 Congregational Meeting.

Bad Weather? Wonder if church is open, or if a church event is still being held? We’ll get the information posted as quickly as possible, so you can check these online or TV sites: this website and our Facebook Page, WLEXTV Stormtracker Closings & Delays, and WKYT Closings.  TV listings may show us as "UU Church of Lexington" or "Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington". 

UUCL Awards

The Unsung Hero Awards go to:

  • Martin Herbener for his consistent volunteer work with RE and for always being there to lend a helping hand, whether it is cleaning up the grounds or cleaning up the Fellowship Hall
  • Rebecca Mboge for her work with the Service Auction, the garage sale, and serving breakfast at the Catholic Action Center. 
  • Sharon Schilling for volunteering her cooking and catering services for almost any event, sewing the bench cushions so everyone has a comfortable seat, and mentoring our youth in RE and the Coming of Age program.

Join us in congratulating our members on their well-deserved recognition!

Strengthen Our Roots

It's that time of year again! Please let us know your pledge amount by Sunday, November 22. Then join us for a celebration with cake to hear the final total.

Religious Exploration

The RE program is bringing some of the magic of Hogwarts to Lexington. November's theme is Fighting Illness and Finding Wellness! The Studios include Transfiguration from Anger, Healing Oils and the Magic Eye.

Our monthly service project is Caring Bags for Veterans. These are items we are collecting: toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap/toiletries, socks, small bags of snacks/goodies, chapstick, pens, blank journals and paperback books to read. We will assemble these gifts on Nov. 29th. Thank you for your support!

About our church

Our church was designed by noted architect Herb Greene and is situated on 7.5 acres of green in Lexington, Kentucky.  The largest Unitarian Universalist church in the region, UUCL has been a constant voice for religious tolerance and education for more than sixty-five years.


About our faith

Unitarian Universalism has its roots in Protestant Christian theology but affirms the wisdom and value of all faiths as well as the importance of intellectual inquiry. In our churches, no one is asked to ascribe to any creed; each of us finds Truth in our own way, and each of us is responsible for our own journey. We come together so that we may learn from each other, and so that we may share our joys and our sorrows along the way.
