The LUF was formed in 1958 by a group of Unitarians interested in having a local fellowship. The board was made up of members that had the time and the interest in being involved with the establishment and strengthening of the fellowship.

Since incorporation in 1984, the LUF has had an executive board that is elected by the congregation at the Annual meetings. In the beginning, the board consisted of several members that met at each other's homes, and held open meetings in local community spaces up until the acquisition of their own building in 1983. When they moved into the Algoma street building in 1984, they voted to incorporate and became a fellowship within the CUC. After incorporation, the board meetings became more formal and committees began reporting to the board in a more formal fashion.

The board oversees daily and long-term operation, while under the board of directors are various committees and chairs who run programs and organize services. Majority of the board and committee members are volunteers, while there are some paid staff. Governance material includes board minutes and committee reports, financial statements, information pertaining to personnel, and CUC and UUA connection.


Course materials organized by course number, including lecture notes, assignments, and prepared videos.

Growth Initiatives

The LUF has changed mission statements a few times since its creation as the members change and the times develop. But regardless of the changes in detail, mission statements have always implied the need to grow as a community. The LUF has been committed to projects and programs that strengthen their congregation and their role in the Thunder Bay community. This series reflects how the LUF have consistently looked for and discussed ways to grow and develop.
