Our Minister, Our Friend: Celebrating the Ministry of Emmy Lou Belcher

On Sunday we celebrated the 25 years of service in UU Ministry of Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher.  It was a tremendous celebration fitting for Emmy Lou. Emmy Lou has served our community at DuPage Unitarian Universalist Church (DUUC) since 2005 with spirit and compassion, a fire for social justice, and a desire to connect with her community.

We invite those of you who were not able to attend the celebration to view the video of the service here.

DUUC has benefited greatly from the leadership and care Emmy Lou has given to both the individual members at DUUC and to our congregation in whole.  We wish her all the best as she begins this new chapter, and all the adventures that will come with it!

Thank you Rev. Emmy Lou Belcher.
