Red River Radio Needs You!

The Pledge Drive is still happening at KDAQ and they may still need a few volunteers to work the phones on some shifts.

Volunteers who work a two-hour shift or more can help us to earn a day sponsorships for All Souls.

If you have any time to spare between now and 28 October 2011, please call Henry Edwards at 318-797-5154 and ask him to put you on the schedule.  Then when you sign in, be sure and write that you are working for All Souls.

No Phones or Internet at Church Today (Tuesday, 14 June 2011)

The following information is forwarded from Susan Caldwell (All Souls Director of Religious Education):

If you need to reach someone on the church staff today, you may call me at 318-465-3427. We are also checking the voice mail at the church, so if you left a message, we promise to return your call as soon as possible. A volunteer is in the office today until 2:00 p.m.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and we are trying to get our service restored as soon as possible. As has happened twice already since the road construction began, it is more than likely that the road crews have cut the phone lines again.
