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.


The LUF held their first several meetings in the homes of the Board members. As they grew and became a larger community, they started meeting at local centers and renting out halls. Finally, in 1984 they moved to their own building on Algoma St. The building was adequate, but was not the ideal location since it had poor accessibility and required constant upkeep. From the 1990s up until the late 2010s the LUF regularly discussed the prospect of a new building and sought new ways to better the Algoma building.
