2nd – 5th Grade Class Cookie and Bracelet Sale

This Sunday (5 February 2012) immediately after our worship service, please join us for this fundraiser presented by our children.

The 2nd – 5th Grade Class has been learning about the tradition of service in many of the world’s religions and our own Unitarian Universalist tradition.  They have decided to raise money for one cause close to home and one cause helping people in the wider world.

They will donate half their proceeds to Heifer International and the other half to the Erosion Abatement Project here at All Souls.

The sale will continue for the next two Sundays — culminating with the intergenerational worship service on 19 February 2012.

Valentine’s Day Bake and Gift Sale

On 12 February 2012 before and after church, we will be having a Valentine’s Day Bake and Gift Sale.

Please bring baked goods, cakes, casseroles, or a gift item appropriate for the holiday.

Items will be sold for donations to be determined (where else?) in the heart of the buyer.

No time to bake? Here’s a great idea for serving two great causes at once: Holy Angels Gift Shop is featuring homemade cookies for $5.00 per dozen! Buy some and bring them for the All Souls sale! Call 797-8500 and ask for Sheila Harkey to place an order. They will need a couple of days notice — so put it on your calendar!

2012 Stewardship Campaign

This year’s stewardship drive has already surpassed last year’s and promises to be even better — thanks to Stewardship Chair Robert Smith, the dedicated stewards who have taken the time to have vital conversations about what the church means to its members, and of course, thanks to you.

We are still waiting on a number of pledges we know will come in, so if one of those happens to be yours, please take a quick moment to cross this one item off of your growing December list.

Such a small, simple act of filling out a form, and yet you know how much it means to your own spiritual sustenance and to the continued presence of a liberal religious alternative in our community.

Lost your form? Not to worry. Check your mailbox on Saturday and Monday and you should receive a new one, so fill it out and bring it with you to church on Sunday or drop it in the mail. If it crosses in the mail with the one you just sent in, thank you, and please disregard the new one.

Thank you for your continued support of our faith community.

2012 Stewardship Campaign

Have you had a chance to talk to your Stewardship Campaign Representative?

If you are an active member, you most likely have been contacted by one of the stewards of this year’s campaign to support the ministries of the church.  You have either had or are planning to have a conversation with the steward about your own stake in the church and your hopes and dreams for its future.

We hope that you have welcomed this opportunity to pause and consider the spiritual dimension of your gifts to the church.

Still haven’t heard from your steward?  If you haven’t been contacted by the end of today (Friday, 11 November 2011), call Robert Smith (Stewardship Campaign Chair) at 318-861-8976 or email him at rwpsmith@comcast.net.
