Please join us on Sunday (17 December 2017) at 11:00 AM for “The Light is Reborn” with the children, youth, and adults of All Souls.
We are celebrating our season of focus on our Jewish and Christian heritage, and the holidays we celebrate at this time of year (heralding the return of light to the world and to our own hearts and spirits).
Everyone: Gather up an assortment of your favorite cookies and baked goods. Great gifts for neighbors and friends or bring them to holiday parties to share. Take as many as you like and just toss your worthy donation in the basket on the table.
Bakers: Bring a batch of your favorite cookies and drop them off at the Cookie Swap table in the hallway.
The afternoon will include music and other performances from the various performing groups of our member congregations, food representing all our congregations and cultures, and a silent auction featuring great merchandise and gift certificates (just in time for holiday shopping).
On Thursday (9 November 2017) from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, citizens from across the state of Louisiana will meet with Gov. Edwards and other public officials for a conversation about changing the narrative of economic development in Louisiana to focus on investment in US — schools, jobs, infrastructure, and more.
Governor Edwards has made changes to our state’s economic development policies as significant as any in the last 50 years.
These changes have the potential to represent a historic shift in our state’s philosophy and culture of economic development — from one oriented more toward corporate subsidies to one based on shared prosperity.
For that shift to achieve its full potential, this new direction must be supported, deepened, and institutionalized.
Please join us on Sunday (17 September 2017) at 11:00 AM for “Home in a Community of Seekers” by Rev. Barbara Jarrell. This is our annual homecoming service.
Whether you have been a longtime member, a member who hasn’t attended in awhile, a former member or a friend; we want you to come home and to feel at home in this covenanted community where love will always call us back.
We will be recognizing new members and honoring those members who have reached the 25 year mark. Please come and join us in celebrating them.
We will have a potluck lunch immediately following the service. Please bring a dish to share and join us for the celebration. If you can help with setup or cleanup, please call or text Amanda Lawrence at 318-402-3314.
Religious education classes for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service. Children and youth attend the first 15-20 minutes of the service and then are dismissed to class.
Please join us on Sunday (17 September 2017) at 6:00 PM for a screening of the documentary Beyond Galilee.
In August of 1958, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was invited to Shreveport, Louisiana to deliver a speech at the Galilee Baptist Church as part of a voter registration workshop. Beyond Galilee explores how the Civil Rights movement evolved in Shreveport in the years that followed — highlighting the key events of the movement in Shreveport through the testimonies of the actual participants supplemented by news footage, rare audio, home movies and photos from the era. Beyond Galilee chronicles a vital part of Shreveport’s history and provides much needed insight and perspective into the city’s role in the national Civil Rights movement (summary from IMDb page for this documentary).
Please join us on Saturday (12 August 2017) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our monthly building and grounds work day — tasks inside and out for all ages and all levels of ability.
Come for a little while or come the whole time. Except for lawn mowing and basic cleaning, all the tasks to maintain our building and grounds are done by ourselves — the members and friends of the church.
Working together is a great way to build and strengthen relationships and get to know your church community a little better.
