Second Sunday April 14 Workshop: Building a More Just Community Through Faith in Indiana

Did you know that UUI does significant social justice work in Indiana through our membership in Faith in Indiana? For example, this past Monday, our Director of Ministry and two UUI members sat at a table with the Mayor of Indianapolis, along with a delegation of 25 other community leaders from Faith in Indiana, to advance a plan to cut gun violence in Indianapolis in half by the end of 2019. Come learn from Jamie and the UUI team all about Faith in Indiana, UUI's participation, and how you can get involved.

Adult Coming of Age

Adult “Coming of Age” Class Thursday evenings, April 11 - May 2

If you have ever wished the awesome Coming of Age Program at UUI wasn’t just for Middle Schoolers, now is your chance to participate in a program designed for adults but with all the wonderful components that our middle schoolers benefit from and enjoy! We’ll meet on Thursday evenings from April 11—May 2. Dinner will be provided starting at 6pm. Sessions are 6:30-8:00pm. Led by our Director of Ministry and Director of Lifespan Religious Education, this will be a fun, engaging, and challenging journey of self-reflection and discovery designed to help you get more in touch with who you are and what you're about. Email re@uui.org for more info and to reserve a spot.

Pub Theology in April

The next Pub Theology will be Tuesday, April 16, 7:00 - 8:30pm in the Social Hall. The topic will be "Restoration." What in our world has been lost? What needs to be restored? How do we restore ourselves? Come join your fellow UUIers for treats and relaxed conversation. Coffee and cookies will be provided. Please feel free to bring a snack to share.

Caring Committee Opportunities

The UUI Caring Committee works with the Director of Ministry to support our UUI community by sending out sympathy and celebration cards, helping to arrange delivery of meals for people in temporary need or short term transportation to things like doctors appointments, or by visiting people in the hospital. Our team currently needs one to two more volunteers. Maybe this is you? There are no committee meetings to attend and the volunteer commitment is light and flexible. Please email caring@uui.org if you are interested in volunteering. It's a great way to help build a caring community here at UUI.
