IlUUmination 2017

Save the date for our own annual IllUUmination holiday, which will be celebrated on the weekend of January 7 and 8, 2017.The evening event will take place in Thomson Hall on Saturday, January 7, with drinks beginning at 5:30pm.The program and dinner will follow at 6:00pm.

Rebecca Roetzel will be coordinating the evening event, building on the past two years, but lso introducing some new themes and experiences. She is recruiting volunteers to help with various aspects of the evening including greeting, cash bar management, food prep, readers set up and clean up. She is specifically searching for three to four individuals who might be willing to share a brief personal story about a meaningful journey in their life. It could be a journey to the church, meeting a special someone, finding your calling/career or any other significant life event. The purpose is to capture the path - however unlikely or divine - which guides us to outcomes we may never have discovered if left to our own devices.

If you are interested in helping, please contact Rebecca Roetzel before Christmas by email at

The IllUUmination worship service will take place at 11:00am on Sunday, January 8th.All are
encouraged to attend these uniquely UUCLR fellowship opportunities!
