Online Religious Education for Children (25 October 2020)

Please join us on Sunday (25 October 2020) at 1:00 PM for our weekly family religious education online class via Zoom.

The Zoom link will be on the All Souls Religious Education Facebook group and on Slack.

If you aren’t currently a member of either online group and you are interested in having your children participate, email Susan to get an invitation to either or both online groups.

This Sunday — “Speaking Out” — We’ll learn about Maria Cook (a woman who was jailed for preaching Universalism in the late 1700s) and talk about when it’s important to speak out and stay true to our values.

We also have a new Slack channel for the group (#sundayadultRE) on the All Souls Slack workspace (AllSoulsUU).

Middle and High School Virtual Gathering — New Day and Time TBA

We need to find a new time for our weekly gatherings.  As soon as we discover what day and time works for all us, we will let you know.

Meanwhile, the middle and high school youth group is also invited to join the Sunday morning 9:00 AM adult religious education class where we will have two more sessions on “Your UU Elevator Speech” followed by our continuing exploration of the 8th Principle, beginning on 8 November 2020.


New UU Class Continues This Sunday (25 October 2020)

The “New UU” class will continue this Sunday (25 October 2020) with facilitator Bennett Upton at 1:00 PM via Zoom.

This week is Session 4 — “Social Justice Philosophy and Practice.”

Bennett has started a new session of this course that offers insight into Unitarian Universalist history, theology, and practice as well as a deeper dive into our own congregation.

This is a great way to learn more about our faith and our church and to spend some time with other members in a small group setting.

It’s not just for newcomers and not just for those who’ve never taken it before — a refresher is always good.
