Welcome to the month embracing the Path of Love

Celebrating the Church We Love. This Sunday, February 5, kicks off the 23/24 Campaign of expressing our gratitude and fulfilling our promise to be responsible financial stewards of our beloved church community. During the service we will share some “good news” about reaching for our dreams. After we celebrate together in the service, we will offer multigenerational activities in Kreves Hall, coffee and goodies in the Learning Center, and computers will be available for making your Promise “on the spot.” See you Sunday!


Our Grounds and Landscape – Beautiful or Not?
When you walk to the front door of the church, what impression did you have on the appearance of our property? What impression do you think it has on visitors? What changes, if any, would you suggest? The Grounds and Landscape Task Force is working to achieve a balance between looking maintained and natural and is asking you to share your thoughts. A survey will be available at church with the Order of Service or you may access the survey here and submit it online. One survey per person, please; submit by February 15. If you have questions, feel free to contact Jane Gano, Susan Camasta, Jenny Hobbs, or Carl Nash at grounds@dupageuuchurch.org.
