Parents who are looking for a faith community to support and affirm them in teaching their children life’s most meaningful values will find a home in the DuPage UU Church Religious Education Program. What ever your religious background – or if you have never participated in a faith community – there is room for you and your children in our congregation.
Children are indeed our future! Here at DuPage UU Church we provide a religious education program that nurtures and stimulates our children’s spiritual and personal growth, and teaches the principles that unify us as Unitarian Universalists. Throughout our program, children and youth are encouraged to seek their own truths, to clarify their values, and to live intentional lives inspired by those values. We help children honor the differences among us – e.g., diversity of race, ability, sexual orientation, and opinion – while celebrating our shared humanity, and we strive to foster their delight in the mysteries and miracles of the world.
Social justice work is central to Unitarian Universalism, and empowering our youngsters to find ways to work to make the world a better place is of great importance to our congregation and is emphasized in our religious education program.

September 9 Opening Sunday
(Back to Two Services 9:00 and 11:00am)
Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher and Steve Cooper
This service is one of the markers of our church year where we ceremonialize the gathering of our community. Everyone is invited to bring water from a place they have visited during the summer. The vials of water are poured together into a single container while the pourer says the name of the place from which the water was gathered. This year we have a new fountain into which to pour our gatherings, where the life-giving waters rise and wash over a globe as our work washes over and over the planet on which we live. All the people of our congregation, birth to eldest, participate in this ceremony. Nursery and toddler care are provided for the youngest who may need age-appropriate gathering with a loving caretaker in order to enjoy their morning.
