First Unitarian is one of the ten member congregations that support Central Louisville Community Ministries (CLCM), and our membership is one of the many ways this congregation lives out its values in the world.  Join Linette Lowe, Executive Director of CLCM, member of First U, and candidate for UU ministry, to learn more about the needs of our central Louisville neighborhood, what community ministry is, and how CLCM and the many First U members involved there are resisting the cycle of need in our community.

AND, we didn’t plan it this way, but it sure worked out nicely–join CLCM between 2:00 and 5:00 that afternoon for A Noble Cause @ Noble Funk, celebrating CLCM’s Annual Campaign!
