Other Groups and Activities

At the UU Church of Peoria, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we offer a variety of small groups and social activities.

Interest Groups

Many groups within the church are based on common interests, such as:

  • Book discussion groups
  • Choir
  • Council of Pimiteoui
  • Drum circles
  • Young Adult group

Social Groups

We also have groups that get together just to enjoy one another’s company for lunch, dinner, or other types of outings. Examples include the Free for Friendship singles group, Women’s Third Thursday Lunch, and Retired Men’s Lunch.

Outside Groups

Several community groups use church facilities for some of their activities. These groups are open to anyone who is interested.

Examples include:

  • Interfaith Alliance
  • Osher Lifelong Learning Institute classes
  • Central Illinois Healthy Community Alliance

Special Events

Fun special events take place throughout the year. Some are fundraisers, others are “just because”—but all are guaranteed to be a good time!

Here’s a small sampling:

  • Potlucks
  • Annual Salad Luncheon
  • Chili Cook-off
  • Auction
  • Halloween Party
  • Thanksgiving Dinner
