7 April 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (7 April 2019) at 11:00 AM for our Faith Climate Action Week Service with Frances Kelley.

We are delighted to welcome activist and organizer Frances Kelley back to our pulpit this morning as we celebrate Faith Climate Action Week.

A past winner of All Souls’ Emerson Award, Frances was the director for the massive campaign that defeated the planned open burning of toxic waste at nearby Camp Minden.

She has organized locally for the national 350.org movement and — in addition to various environmental issues — has worked on women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and various election campaigns.

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.

And this Sunday will be the last day for our spring plant sale.

Adult Religious Education — 7 April 2019

Please join us on Sunday (7 April 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class — “Intersectionality Part II:  Camp L’eau Est La Vie.”

US citizens affected by contaminated air, water, and soil are disproportionately black, brown, and poor.

As we kick off Faith Climate Action Week, we look at issues of environmental justice locally, statewide, nationally, and globally, with particular attention to the Bayou Bridge pipeline protests in South Louisiana.

31 March 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (31 March 2019) at 11:00 AM for “A Seat at the Table” by Lee Jeter.

Join us as we welcome back Lee Jeter (Executive Director of the Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana).  He is one of our most requested guest speakers.

His message of empowerment and inclusion will be taken from Luke 14:10 in the Bible.

This is our monthly “Give Away the Plate Sunday” and the Fuller Center will be the recipient of this Sunday’s non-pledge collection.  Remember that if you only bring one check, you can indicate on the memo line the proportions allotted to All Souls and the Fuller Center.

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.

Adult Religious Education — 31 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (31 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.  We will have a presentation on “Spread the Vote” with Candice Battiste (Director of Spread the Vote Louisiana).

Spread the Vote is a national organization that empowers and educates voters and also helps them to obtain the necessary state photo IDs to exercise their voting rights and participate in many other basic, daily activities of citizenship that many of us take for granted.

From the Louisiana Spread the Vote Facebook page:

Without ID it is almost impossible to obtain legal employment, to find housing, or even needed medical care. At Spread The Vote + Project ID , we work every day to help the most vulnerable members of our communities obtain the little card that changes lives.
