Bake Sale for UNRWA

This Sunday after the 11:00 AM worship service, we are having a bake sale to benefit United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East — especially providing much-needed relief for the people of Gaza.

You will find delicious baked goods in exchange for your worthy donation, to benefit the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

You can help by baking, by donating something you buy from a nice bakery, or by buying and eating (a tasty form of social justice work).

This bake sale is being organized by Jennifer Russell, Eva Peck, and the members of the Shreveport Chapter of Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East.

Monthly Building and Grounds Work Day (13 April 2024)

Our monthly building and grounds work day is happening on Saturday (13 April 2024) from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  This monthly work day usually happens on the second Saturday of each month with the occasional rare exception.

With the exception of some basic cleaning and yard work, all the work of maintaining our physical home is done by us — the members and friends of All Souls.

The sanctuary still needs some shop-vac attention after the heavy rains this past week (although it’s not as squishy as it was two days ago).

There are tasks indoors and out for all ages and abilities — this can be a great way to better know your All Souls friends as you join in a common task.

All Ages Worship (7 April 2024)

Please join us this Sunday (7 April 2024) at 11:00 AM for “Why We Cannot Turn Away (Resources for Unitarian Universalist Leaders Engaging on Israel and Palestine).”

We will be meeting in the sanctuary for this worship service.  Please join us in person at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 9449 Ellerbe Road, Shreveport LA  71106 if you are able to do so.

Our service will also be livestreamed on Facebook Live here if you cannot attend in person.

The COVID risks for Caddo, Bossier and De Soto Parishes (the Shreveport metro area) are all low — the CDC does not recommend mandatory masking for all indoor events in “low” risk areas.

See the CDC website and the COVIDActNow website for more details.

Starting on 13 November 2022, masks will be optional indoors at All Souls.

Anyone who prefers to keep wearing a mask is welcome to do so and attending worship through livestream video is also an option.

We will still have KN95 masks available in the foyer for anyone who needs one.

We continue to recommend that you stay home if you have any symptoms, and that you keep up with all available vaccinations and boosters.

Please use this link to evaluate the current COVID risk for the Shreveport-Bossier City metro area as you make your decisions regarding masking and other COVID preventive measures while attending All Souls.

We no longer require proof of vaccination against COVID for all attendees ages 11 and up for indoor events.

However, we do strongly encourage that anyone attending our worship services or other indoor events at All Souls be vaccinated against COVID.

Please use good judgment and stay home if you have any symptoms.  Even those who have tested negative for COVID can later test positive.

Our April 2024 give-away-the-plate recipient is Chimp Haven.

And you can contribute to All Souls using this online resource.

Easter Service (Sunday, 31 March 2024)

Next Sunday (31 March 2024) is our Easter Worship Service.

We celebrate the spirit of rebirth and renewal at this season and the service includes an inclusive communion ritual focused on sharing in community rather than on any one belief system.

All are welcome.

After the service, we will have an Easter Egg Hunt for children ages toddler through 5th grade with special “compensation” for the middle and high school youth who help hide the eggs for the children.

Please join us!
