Dear UU Parents and Guardians,
Attached you will find printable Easter Egg coloring sheets which have CHALICES on them!
Perhaps you have heard of 'The Great Lincoln Egg Hunt'?
Well, now we are adding in UU Easter Eggs!
It's as easy as printing, coloring, and putting on your window.
Adults are welcome and encouraged to decorate an egg as well!
It would also be terrific if you wanted to take a photo of your decorated window and
post to our Unitarian Church Social Page on Facebook, or on Twitter, or Instagram,
using the hashtag: #uuchurchlincolnathome
And/Or post to celebrate if you see someone else's decorated window!
(Please do not post exact addresses...although those are all accessible through our online database for members)
Easter is April 4th this year. Feel free to put these up anytime between now and then.
If you do NOT have a printer:
1. I am happy to drop off coloring sheets to you, just let me know OR
2. If you are signed up for our 'Sunday School in a Bag' activities, I will be including these coloring sheets in those bags in mid-March.

We are joining up with the Omaha youth groups -

We invite all Middle and High School students from Omaha and Lincoln to join us for discussion and community through this app.
'Would you rather' questions - Thoughts along our monthly Soul Matters themes - 'Big questions' related to UUism.
Also - a "Pet Page"!!! So much fun.
***Be aware that once joining Discord, it opens up the app to multiple pages which will need to be moderated by students themselves and their parents/guardians for security.
