Special events

We host some regular events and special activities throughout the year. For specific dates, visit our calendar. To learn more about each activity, see below.

Coffee House Concerts

Held periodically, UU and other local musicians provide inspiring (always) and often original songwriting.  For more information contact Denise Wilson dm2wilson@gmail.com.

All-Church Retreat. (Coordinator: Eric Thiel)

The 2013 All-Church retreat will be held August 9-11 at Ross Camp near West Lafayette, the retreat features workshops, worship, outdoor activities such as biking and hiking, and social activities such as dancing and music.  For more information, contact Eric Thiel eathiel@comcast.net.

All-Church Picnic (Coordinator: Lisa Pantea)

Traditionally held in mid-summer, this potluck picnic is usually held at Happy Hollow Park.

Holiday Art Show & Sale. (Coordinator: Margie Deverall)

This event is a showcase for local artists and a fund-raiser for the congregation. Held the first Friday evening (5 – 9pm) & Saturday (10am-4pm) of December, the Art Show & Sale is a well-respected tradition in the greater Lafayette area. Contact Margy Deverall mcdeverall@gmail.com.

Plant Sale. (Coordinator: Lisa Pantea)

The annual plant sale is a service to the community and a fund-raising event for the congregation. The 2014 plant sale is TBA – we usually hold it the second Saturday of May.

Clothing Drive

The Social Justice Committee sponsors this event in each year. Donations of clothing are collected and given to Goodwill, which then provides vouchers to be distributed to low-income families through agencies such as LUM.  Contact Joan Marshall, jmarshal900@yahoo.com.

Healing services

Once a month, usually Thursdays at 7 pm, we hold a healing service for any and all to attend for themselves or for others.  Dates are listed on our calendar.  Contact Susanne McConville for details, mcconville1200@comcast.net.

Service auction

Every year or year and a half, we hold a service auction as a fundraiser for the church.  People volunteer services to be auctioned off, such as 2 hours of computer training, attending a bird hike, or helping with backyard weeding, and these services are auctioned off, with the proceeds benefitting the church.  The 2013 service auction will be held September 21 at 6 pm.  Contact Julie Rubsam, julie@rubsam.net.
