DuPage UU Church response to Coronavirus news and recommendations: Reverend Michael Walker and the Board of Trustees have made the decision to suspend in-person activities at the church until a date to be determined, for the health and safety of our members and visitors. However, we will meet virtually on Sundays and for meetings! Please read the letter to the congregation and note that the optimistic date of return is now fluid, as we continue to follow guidance by the CDC and our state leaders. Join us online, livestreaming on Sundays at 10:30 am, or at your convenience.
Building a Search Team for our next settled minister. Members are encouraged to review the email sent last week that explains how, during this interim ministry period, we begin the exciting process of searching for a new settled minister. Over the next few weeks, your Board of Trustees is calling EVERY member, to best understand who members would like to have representing them in the search process.
What qualities should a Search team nominee possess? We've noted some helpful ones on the Search FAQ page. Think about it, ponder ... then answer the call! Thank you for your insight and participation.
