Pathway to Membership

We believe that every individual is on their unique spiritual journey, and our church provides a safe, inclusive, and supportive space for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to explore their path. Are you curious to learn what being a member of DUUC is all about? In the first session, participants will share stories about their religious/spiritual histories and learn all about how DUUC works. We will gather for a luncheon at the second session. Childcare is available upon request. The next group will meet on April 28 from 1:00-4:00 pm and on May 5 from 12:30-2:00 pm.

April Special Offering to Benefit HOPE Fair Housing

During April 2024 the Special Offering will benefit HOPE Fair Housing nominated by Barbara Roos. Hope Fair Housing Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating housing discrimination across Illinois since 1968. Based in Wheaton, IL Hope Fair Housing serves over 30 counties in Northern and North Central Illinois. Hope Fair Housing Center works to create greater housing opportunities for all so that everyone has a chance to live in the community/home/apartment of their choice free from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, familial status, or any other characteristics protected under state or local laws. Hope accomplishes this through education, outreach, enforcement, training, and advocacy. For more information about HOPE, visit their website at

APRIL 21 at 5:00 PM  

The DUUC Jewish Heritage Group celebrates the meaning of Jewish Heritage in a Unitarian Universalist context. Many participants grew up in a Jewish home or have a partner who was raised in a Jewish family. Other participants developed a practice of celebrating Jewish holidays as adults or have a particular interest in Judaism. We welcome anyone who wishes to participate in traditional Jewish celebrations or other Jewish oriented activities. Please contact Bev Becker if you would like to join in the activities of the Jewish Heritage Group by sending an email to The annual Jewish Heritage Group Passover Seder will be on Sunday, April 21 at 5:00 PM in Kreves Hall.

Bake Sale on April 28th!

The Coming of Age (COA) youth and mentors are having a bake sale in Kreves Hall between Sunday services on April 28th. Proceeds will go toward the purchase of materials to construct a Little Free Pantry which the COA youth plan to build and place at DUUC. Please bring cash to purchase delectable homemade goodies during coffee hour. Gluten free options available. Cash donations are also welcome.

Sunday Flowers Needed 

Celebrate a person or event by providing flowers for a Sunday service. Flowers are needed for various dates throughout the summer months. You may request to have Sunday Flowers order a $35 standard arrangement for you from Phillip’s Flowers. Or, if you are planning to attend the service in person, you may choose to bring in your own arrangement from your garden or favorite flower shop. The arrangement should be brought to the sanctuary by 8:50 a.m. Your dedication will be printed in the email with the link to the on-line version of the Order of Service as well as in the printed Order of Service.  The flowers are yours to take home after the second service. If you are not attending service that day, you may contact Sheri or (630) 505-9408 to make arrangements for pick-up during office hours. Payment may be made by sending a check made out to DUUC for $35 to the church office (write “flowers” on the memo line), through the DUUC Payment Portal (select “other” under donation, and write in “flowers”), or VANCO (select “flowers fund”). Contact Kristen Tang or (630) 305-7771 for more information and/or to request a date. Thank you!
