Dear UU Parents and Guardians,
NO Zoom Sunday School this Sunday!
Instead - the Board will be holding the Congregational Meeting at 11am. It would be great to see you all there! Watch your emails from the church office for the link.
May 23rd and 30th - Church service in-person and live-streaming. Children are welcome to sit in the sanctuary with their parents. Childcare for age 5 and under. Watch for registration link online. Zoom Sunday School will continue at 11am. We'll begin Sunday School in June IF we have volunteers.
PLEASE contact me as soon as possible if you are willing to teach or assist or be a floater for Sunday School this summer! If we don't have volunteers - we can't have a program!
Plans for Re-Entry Into the Church Building Are Underway

DISCORD for Middle and High School
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.
