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. The theme for September is Story.

Childcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9:00 AM on Sundays

Forging Our Path

Often in our services, we sing with wonder the following words:

Where do we come from?
What are we?
Where are we going?

Over the past year we have welcomed our Reverend, Brian Chenowith, and thoughtfully reflected on where we have come from and where we are going as a congregation in order to respond to the question in the middle: “What are we?”

That’s why the theme for the 2017 Stewardship Campaign is “Forging Our Path.” The road to our future stretches ahead of us, and it is up to us, the stewards of our congregation, to plan the route with wisdom and foresight.

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.
