We would love to have you visit – online or in person! Explore our pages, get to know if you and DuPage UU are a fit, and please sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date on events and activities.
Who is welcome?
We are an inclusive community, involving all people without regard to age, race, gender, present or previous marital status, financial resources, religious background or sexual orientation. Visitors are welcome at all our services and programs.
What can you expect on a Sunday?
We hold services at 9:00 and 11:30 (identical) with an education and social hour between at 10:15. During the education and social hour we offer children & youth religious education and adult learning as well as social time and coffee for adults.
On certain holiday weekends only one service will be held at 10:00 and there will be no education offerings.
Children and Adults attend the Sunday service together. We sing together, share the joys and concerns of our lives, reflect together in silence, heed the wisdom of ancient and modern words, and listen and respond to thoughts from the minister or others.
We know that including children and youth in Sunday morning worship has a direct correlation to our children’s identity as UUs and their spiritual life. We want our children and youth to be full participating members of our church who are more likely to remain committed UUs through college and adulthood. Having children and youth participate in services is important for all of us to come together to build community.
Nursery care is available during both services and the education hour. Parents who wish to keep infants and young children with them are welcome to bring them to the service.
Children and Youth Religious Education Experience
In the classroom, the children and youth learn and interact with their peers using age-appropriate lessons that emphasize self-reflection, kindness, acceptance and delight in the mysteries of our world. They are encouraged to create their own spiritual paths based on our seven principles (youth version) and interaction with parents and peers. We strive to include children and youth as much as possible in every element of church life. We celebrate special seasons and events with a variety of rites, stories and music, together with our children.

Is this a Christian church?
Most Unitarian Universalists would not identify themselves as Christians, although Christianity is an important strand of our history, and some of us find it a source of wisdom and inspiration. We draw from the teachings of all the world’s great religious traditions, as well as from knowledge gained by natural and social sciences, and the profound insights of the arts and humanities. Many philosophical positions, from humanism to atheism to feminist spirituality, as well as more traditional views, are represented in our church.
