Finding Joy will be the topic for discussion at our next STARS (Spiritual Time And Renewal for Survivors) meeting. During the holidays when everyone is busy and either looking forward to or dreading the events associated with Christmas and New Year, we will be considering ways to find Joy for ourselves and ways to share joy with others.

We hope you will join us. Jolene is helping out with the school children and holiday programs, but we are blessed to have Beth Hagemeyer join us for the day as our pianist.

We look forward to hearing from each of you. Remember that during construction at CUMC we are meeting in the Community Room at the First Congregational UCC across Center Street from CUMC.

All are welcome!  Contact the church office at 630-355-1483 if you have questions or need additional information.


  • 1:15 pm – Gather in Community Room at First Congregational UCC
  • 1:30 pm – Chapel service with Communion
  • 2:00 pm – Support groups are available for caregivers and survivors

Come for both or either.
