Welcome to our church!

We are a church of open minds.
We are a church of loving hearts.
We are a church of helping hands.
Together we care for our earth,
And work for justice
and peace in our world.

 
We're a caring community uniting reason with spiritual exploration. We draw on the wisdom of the world's religions and the results of science. We welcome people of all abilities, ages, classes, races, colors, ethnicities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations.

Is this your first "virtual visit?" I invite you to read our Missionlearn about our church, read past sermons and find out about our community, or stop by on a Sunday morning. Service is at 10:00AM (please note that we are in our temporary home until Dec 1.) We'd love to meet you in person.


                                         Reverend Dr. Justin Osterman, Interim Minister ~ dro@unitarianlincoln.org 

WE ARE MOVING HOME!!!!!!!
We are in our temporary home of 1333 No. 33rd - the former Faith Methodist Church - through the end of November 2014. Our last service at this temporary location will be Sunday, December 7. Our first service at our permanent, newly renovated home at 6300 A St will be on Sunday, December 14, 2014.

Call For Nominations

The Nominations Committee will soon seek candidates for the Ministerial Search Committee. 

The Ministerial Search Committee shall consist of seven members, four of whom shall be elected by church members at a congregational meeting, and three of whom shall be appointed by the Board of Trustees.       The Ministerial Search Committee shall select one of its members to be Chair. All candidates must be        church members and should be seriously committed to this intensive, months-long process. 

Detailed information about the process and the committee will be available in the December Newsletter, but the Nominations Committee urges church members to begin considering if they would like to nominate themselves or another church member (with that member’s permission).

A general timeline and handbook is available on the UUA website http://www.uua.org/careers/ministers/transitions/20679.shtml

RENOVATION/EXPANSION

On June 2, 2013 our Members voted to approve the proposed Renovation Plan & Funding Package!  Contributions to the capital campaign, and pledges toward our mortgage payments continue to be welcome and needed. Please click here to download contribution or pledge forms and return them to the church office.

Our church members voted June 2 to authorize expending $2.1 million to renovate and expand our facilities:

The changes funded in this (Phase 1) project will be: 

  * a completely renovated classroom wing with fewer-but-bigger classrooms;

  * a new roof and internal sprinkler system for the entire existing facility

  * a new entrance wing with

    - (on the main level) larger administrative/minister offices + new restrooms;

    - (on the lower level) a music room, a storage area and a mechanical

          room servicing a geothermal heating & cooling system

  * expansion of our "Gallery Space" (Sanctuary Lobby/Social Area)

    - (at the south end) to create a new fireplace, bookstore/café area, and A street profile

    - (at the north end) to add a library room and expanded lobby/entrance area (in anticipation of Phase 2: a projected new Sanctuary & lower level classroom addition)


The $2.1 million funding package approved provides for:

   $1,265K from capital campaign contributions already made or pledged

   $275K from the church's foundation principal

   $150K from the sale of a church-owned house

   The balance from other donations + mortgage financing.
