Please join us on Saturday (9 March 2019) from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our monthly building and grounds work day.

Most of the work for our church home is done by us — the members and friends of All Souls.

Weather permitting — we’ll have tasks both outdoors and indoors.

But rain or shine, we’ll have jobs for all ages and abilities.

Come join us for the whole time, or just an hour or so if that’s all the time you have.  Every little bit helps.

Farewell Party for Jeff Gauger — Saturday, 16 February 2019

Come join us this Saturday evening (16 February 2019) at 7:00 PM for a party to mourn Jeff Gauger’s leaving and to celebrate his time among us.

In the short time Jeff has been here at All Souls, he has served on the board, sung in the choir, preached a sermon, and has done spoken word pieces for Artist Sunday and for our recent New Year’s service.

We are sad to lose him from the church and from the community, but this is our chance to let him know how much we appreciate him!

Bring a snack to share (think “heavy hors d’oeuvres”) and whatever you’d like to drink.

We’ll have some beer, wine, water, lemonade, and coffee available, but more and different options will be welcome.

To help with setup, cleanup, or any aspect of the party, contact Bennett Upton at 318-553-7321.
