Anna and James LeRoux began attending People’s in 2016 when they moved back to the Kalamazoo area from the San Francisco Bay area. James, a childhood Episcopalian, had attended People’s in 2002 after learning about People’s from his college roommate.

Anna attended the UU church in Corvallis, Oregon when Jill McAllister was starting her internship there.

The couple came to People’s looking for a liberal religious education for their daughter Roz. They’ve found that; and they appreciate the music, the open-minded community and the sermons.

They especially appreciate that People’s is a welcoming community.

They said they don’t have much free time to volunteer now but expect to become more involved when their year-old daughter Roz is a bit older.


Anna, 46, is a web programmer for North American Color who designs labels notably for companies such as Gordon Foods. Anna studied physics at Reed College and Montana State University.  In her spare time, she enjoys gardening.  James, 37, is training to be a medical lab technician at IVY Tech in South Bend, IN.
