Come and join us for this service in celebration of our congregation.

We will be be ingathering new members, paying tribute to those who have been a part of us for 25 years or longer, and celebrating the history and legacy of our faith community.

And lots and lots of great music from the All Souls Choir and our guest musicians, Weldon Stutes, Randy Guynes, and Hannah Bradley.

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.

Be sure to join us afterward for a Homecoming Potluck — a chance to reunite with old friends and make some new friends.
