Extinguishing the Chalice.
We extinguish this flame,
but not the light of truth,
the warmth of community,
or the fire of commitment.
These we carry in our hearts
until we are together again

Opportunities for Sharing: Donations and Pledges

Donations may be made on our website (firstulou.org/give), automatic banking
set up with your bank, or by phone using the Vanco Mobile app. Or you may mail payments to church at 809 S. 4th Street, Louisville, KY 40203. However, you choose to give, thanks.

We welcome all persons to participate fully, openly, and equally, in all aspects of our congregational life, in ever-widening circles of inclusion. We respect and affirm diversity and its gifts in race, ethnicity, national origin, affectional or sexual orientation, family or relationship structure, gender identity, gender expression, sex, abilities, neurodiversity, age, socio-economic class, political views, religious belief, creed, or interpretation of religion.

Show Your LOVE for Your Community!!

Vaccination is no longer required for entrance to the building but highly encouraged:  The evidence is clear – vaccines save lives. The booster shots now available protect more people, better and longer. Get your booster shot for yourself and for everyone.

Masks are Optional:  We suggest that you please wear masks over your nose and mouth while in the building, whether you are vaccinated or not, in order to respect others’ concerns regarding safety. Even though the vaccine radically reduces the possibility of death and hospitalization, the virus can still be carried in the nose and throat of vaccinated people and transmitted to people who are susceptible. We will continue to provide masks and sanitizer by the entrances.
