What's Happening On Sunday?

Good Morning DuPage @ 9:30am & 11:15am

SUNDAY MORNING FORUM - 9:30am - Learning Center:  SCIENCE SUNDAY
On May 4th, there will be a different format for Science Sunday.  The West Suburban Humanists will sponsor a debate about genetically modified organisms.  Is there a place for them in providing nutrition for our growing (and hungry) world population?  You may have strong feelings about this topic, but hearing both points of view may help clarify the issue. Keeping an open mind and looking at the scientific facts is an important skill, and this is a good opportunity to hone that ability.  Can you impartially hear both points of view and fine tune your thinking about this important concept?  I'll be interested to hear what new learning has come about because of this exercise!

Uppity Women @ 9:30am & 11:15am
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher
I've always tried to avoid sentimentality on Mother's Day, especially since we don't seem to celebrate Father's Day in any special way. So what better way to praise women role models than a service on "uppity women"! Our choir will be singing and we will be recognizing our newest members during this service.

7th & 8th Grade Coming of Age Students
7th & 8th grade students will share with the congregation the credo statements that they have developed over the year.  They have attended overnight retreats working on team building and a wilderness retreat where they sat out in the wilderness for four hours doing self-reflection.  Each student has an adult mentor from the congregation that has helped them on their journey.

Saying Goodbye (one service only at 11:15am)
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher
This is not only Memorial Day weekend but also the last full service I will be in the pulpit. So goodbye seems an apt topic.

9:30am  Flower Communion
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher and Steve Cooper, Director of Religious Education
An annual ritual of our church is the Unitarian flower communion. Developed by the Unitarian minister in Prague, Czechoslovakia, before WWII, it has become a favorite of many of our congregations. Bring a flower with you, and bring the children as this a time for the whole congregation to participate together in a ritual.

11:15am Celebration of the Ministry of Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher
Jill Wallace and Kelley Trombly-Freytag
Lots of music from brass quintets to our choir; lots of speakers from various ministries that Emmy Lou has served: this service will be a real celebration of the 25 years Emmy Lou has spent in the ministry. She is retiring from full-time work on this day. It will also be her last time with us. A luncheon will be served afterward. Child care is available. Everyone is welcome.
