Elgin is hosting its first Pride Parade and Festival this June. The idea has been brought up by several people that UUCE should march in the parade and/or be a sponsor or vendor at the festival. This is an absolutely fantastic idea, but we are in need of someone to step up and spearhead that effort for our church. The good news is that this is a short-term commitment, and based on the general response from the service yesterday, there would be a decent amount of people willing to participate and help. Speaking on behalf of the Board and Revitalization Team, if there is anything that either group can do to support and promote this task force, we are willing to to as well. All we need is a person who can lead this project.
So! If you feel called to take action and “walk the walk” to support our LGBTQIA+ friends and family, this may be a great opportunity for you.
