UUCTC Facebook Discussion Group, a Great Way to Stay Informed!

Are you on Facebook? If so, are you a member of our "UU Church Discussion Group?" If not, we'd love for you to join. It's a great place to get information about what's happening at church, view and post photos of recent events, and share information with other members of our church community.

This is a closed group, meaning your request to join needs to be approved. We do this to screen out internet trolls and other bad actors. You don't need to be a church member, but we ask a few questions to get a sense of who you are and your involvement with the church. We try to keep the group limited to attendees and local people with a sincere interest in learning more about us.

To join, go to the group page at  Click the blue "+ Join Group" button. An admin will review your request as soon as possible. Hope to see you there!

Need Volunteers for Football Parking Saturday, September 23 for Homecoming

 As announced before service on Sunday, the Purdue football game on Saturday, September 23 is likely to be the biggest crowd of the season. Purdue's team is playing well, it is Homecoming. Their opponent, Michigan, is ranked in the top 10 in the nation (and they bring a LOT of fans to away games). As of now, we have no one to do football parking this Saturday. Ideally we would have 3-5 people.

The game starts at 4 pm on Saturday. We need to have someone at the church about 1 pm to put out the parking cones - ideally one person would be there for that first hour in case the crowd arrives early. 2-3 people should be present from 2-4 pm. Parking ends at kickoff. Barny can provide detailed instructions.

Any volunteers can direct half of the proceeds to the budget of any church committee/group that they want. We made $300 last week for the first game - potentially we could park 55-60 cars and make up to $600 this Saturday.

If any church group or individuals can help with parking this Saturday, contact Barny at or 765-412-8760.

Remember, if your committee does the parking, 50% of the revenue goes to your committee’s budget!!



If you have moved, changed email addresses or phone numbers please email John Carlson at so he can update it in the church's database software. He is also developing a process to reduce the number of statuses to make it easier to track information.

Gigantic thanks to John for taking on this time consuming and arduous task!

Blue Moon Rising Autumn Concert

On November 19 the members of Blue Moon Rising will share with the public a program of fun and uplifting music at 7:00 p.m. The community choir’s Autumn Concert will take place in the sanctuary and everyone is invited to stay afterwards for light refreshments in Fellowship Hall. Though Blue Moon Rising is an independent organization (which practices at UU), many of the group’s 58 singers are members of the UU church.
The concert is a culmination of the community choir’s 15-week session which began in August. The music will include a variety of styles (folk, gospel, pop) and during the evening the audience will be invited to join in the singing on a few songs.
A donation will be accepted at the door to help with the choir’s scholarship fund. A suggested amount is $10 but please contribute whatever amount fits your budget. Children are free.
