Pastoral Care/Caring Connection

The Caring Connection serves as the pastoral care arm of the church.  This small group of lay members serves the congregation by providing help during times of crisis or transition, offering one-to-one caring support, and helping people connect with community resources.  If you’re in need, call 859-223-1448, and leave a message for the minister or the office manager. 

Committee on Ministry

The purpose of the Committee on Ministry (CoM) is to strengthen the quality of ministry within the congregation. It serves both as a support group for our minister, and as a communication channel between the congregation and the minister. Anyone with ideas, suggestions, or concerns about either of these goals is encouraged to contact a member of the committee. 

Worship Associates

The Worship Associates assist the Minister with our worship services, and help plan and lead worship services on those Sundays when our minister is not in the pulpit. 

Worship Aesthetics

The Worship Aesthetics committee takes care of the decor for the chalice table each Sunday, Operating on a rotating schedule so each person usually does one Sunday a month. Sometimes our designs try to reflect the theme of the service, and sometimes we just try to make a beautiful arrangement; always we strive to make the chalice table a focal point for meditation and reflection. UUCL is fortunate to have a group of decorators instead of having to rely on just one person every week (as many churches must do), because each decorator brings a completely different vision and set of skills -- to the table, so to speak! "Guest Decorators" are always welcome to volunteer.

Uniview Assembly Crew

The Uniview is our monthly church newsletter.  The Uniview Assembly crew can always use a hand - collating, taping, labelling, etc.  All it takes is about an hour (or so) of your time once a month (or so) before the 11 a.m. service. It's easy and you get to meet and work with some great people.

Fundraising Committee

This committee coordinates and helps plan the fundraising activities of the church.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee makes budget and financial policy recommendations to the Board of Directors.

Hospitality Committee

The Hospitality Committee welcomes the congregation at the Coffee Hour immediately after the services. We prepare coffee, tea and other drinks as well as a snack to munch on while visiting others, welcoming visitors or stopping by the information tables set up in the Fellowship Hall.

Some committee members arrive early enough on Sunday to prepare these refreshments and others stay to clean up. Our project is self-supporting. Donations from folks who enjoy the treats are how we sustain this program.

Property Council

The Property Council is responsible for the maintenance and  upkeep of our buildings and grounds.  It recommends related purchases the our Board of Directors.

UUCL Library

UUCL's library is located on the first floor of the Allen House next to the church. It is open on Sunday mornings before and after the worship service. Check-out is self-serve. (We ask only that you return books within a month.) We have several hundred cataloged non-fiction books on a wide variety of topics (and, by the way, we can always use more non-fiction books). You can browse our catalog online at www.librarything.com/catalog/UUCL

Holley Bookstore

The Holley Bookstore at UUCL sells mainly Unitarian Universalist related books from the UUA Bookstore and Fair Trade products from Equal Exchange and Hope for Women. Open for business most Sundays before and after service. The bookstore exists primarily to promote awareness and availability of UU-related books and materials and Fair Trade products. Products are priced so that a small profit is returned to the Church. Kroger gift cards are also sold at the bookstore for the benefit of our church. We carry coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate and snacks as well as beautiful handmade greeting cards. 

Technical Committee

The Technical Committee cares for all aspects of the computer systems in the church office, as well as the website. We meet  as needed. The Technical Committee welcomes both people with technical computer backgrounds, as well as non-technical church members who can help us evaluate what functions are needed, usability, etc.

Service Auction

Every Spring we have a themed dress-up party with lots of live entertainment, silent and live auctions, and plenty of fun!
