Fall 2022 Chalice Lighter Call

The MidAmerica Chalice Lighter Committee is pleased to announce the recipient of the Fall 2022 Chalice Lighter Call: The Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, Kentucky.

UU Church of Lexington KY

In 1998 the church added an additional building, but the parking area was never expanded to meet the congregation’s need to provide a welcoming space for members and visitors. Currently, overflow parking is in a sometimes muddy or frozen area that can be treacherous to navigate and adds to soil erosion. This Chalice Lighters grant will help provide significant improvements that will upgrade the church’s parking situation in an environmentally sustainable manner. The UU Church of Lexington has long been a leader in environmental issues, and this project will allow them to build on that leadership by making changes to their campus that will reduce the impact on the local environment.

This project is part of the church’s goal of being a model for institutions of faith to demonstrate environmental stewardship in keeping with their convictions. You can help the UU Church of Lexington reach that goal by donating to the Fall 2022 Chalice Lighter Call. Donate today.

For this year’s Fall Call, please donate by December 31, 2022.

There are several ways you can participate in the Chalice Lighter program, with four suggested levels of donation:

  • $20 Believer
  • $50 Builder
  • $100 Benefactor
  • $250 Beacon

These are amounts that would be donated three times each year upon receipt of the Call Letters for the Fall, Winter and Spring Calls.

If you’d prefer, for tax purposes, to make one donation per year (please send the $60 minimum donation or any greater amount to be divided among the next three Calls), you can send in your check now, and we will hold the funds and divide them equally across the three Calls. If you want to make an annual donation, please be sure to note “Annual Donation” in the memo field of your check.

There are two ways to donate to the 2022 Fall Chalice Lighter Call.

  • Donate using the form below, or
  • Write a check out to MidAmerica Region UUA. Please note “Chalice Lighters Fall 2022 Call” or “Annual Donation” in the memo line and mail it to MidAmerica Region UUA, 2355 Fairview Avenue N #312, Roseville, MN 55113.

Whichever way you choose, please know that we are grateful for your generous support!

For those of you who are annual donors, you are being sent this Call Letter and will receive subsequent letters to keep you updated on what your funds are being used for as well as keep you informed about any changes in the Chalice Lighter Program. You are not being asked to send more money once you have made your annual donation for a given calendar year unless you wish to do so.

As always, thank you for your generosity!
