Dear Beautiful UUI Families,

Happy Spring Break!

Whether you are breaking-in-place or traveling, I hope you are finding joy in family, in new adventures and time away from your usual routine.

We have a wonderful morning planned for you at UUI!
  • Worship Associate, Mary Beth Carlson, is delivering the sermon: "Hope, Resilience and Seeds". As seeds hide in the dark with no sign of light, they remember that what they need to do is within them. Our hope and resilience depend upon AND nurture our belief in ourselves and the greater good. 
  • Special music will be provided by the Indianapolis Women's Chorus!

Just a few notes:

  1. It's time to sign up for Peace Camp! We had a blast last year and registration is available online now! Look for details below!
  2. We are remodeling the Nursery. This is exciting news! If you can help, please let us know!
  3. We are doing escape rooms for our junior and senior high youth this Easter (April 21). If you are interested in helping plan the rooms, please let me know! You don't have to be at church on that day to participate in the planning.
  4. We are having our annual egg hunt on Easter for our Preschool - 5th graders. If you would like to help with crafting the treasure table items ahead of time, please let me know!
  5. We are needing additional nursery staff so if you know someone you think would be wonderful working in our nursery, please ask them to contact me!

Peace and Love,

Susanne Hinson-Rieger
