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.

Way Station Concert

Sharon Knight and Winter

Tuesday, October 7 • 7:30PM
The Ferguson House 700 South 16th St.
Doors open at 7:00PM

Sharon Knight and her longtime collaborator Winter are internationally touring musicians in the mythic-Celtic vein. Their penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired their own style, "Neofolk Romantique". This often sounds less Celtic an dmore "Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates." This suits them fine. You can find out more at www.sharonknight.net

This concert is sponsored by Way Station Concerts (Unitarian Church of Lincoln) and KZUM Community Radio. Contact: Roger Geery, Coordinator, Way Station Concerts 402-540-0015

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.
