Gale Gucker Honored for 50 Years of Membership

During our September 2017 Homecoming Service (when we honored our 25-year members) we made a horrendous mistake and forgot to honor Gale Gucker (our 50-year member).

We plan to correct that oversight at our 11:00 AM Sunday service on 29 October 2017.

Gale has served the church in numerous positions over the years — President of the Board, Chair of the Building Committee for our current location in the beautiful woods of South Shreveport, and in many other roles.

She has also served in leadership roles with the former Southwest District of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Please join us to honor Gale and to hear her speak about the early years of our congregation.

March 2014 Volunteers of the Month

Our BOLTs (Bearers of Light and Tradition) are our March 2014 Volunteers of the Month.

Each Sunday, All Souls is reminded of our sources and principles through the work of five dedicated children and youth — Sam First, Gretchen Upton, Eleanora Lawrence, and Andrew Lawrence.

They make up our current team of Bearers of Light and Tradition more affectionately known as BOLTs.

In addition to public speaking and playing with fire, the children and youth pass the offering plates and many of them also perform in the All Souls theatrical productions.  Most recently, these junior members along with John Allen and Amanda Lawrence put on a most excellent production of Dr. Suess’s The Sneetches.

We appreciate the work all these young people do for All Souls each Sunday.

We are delighted to honor Corey Robertson as a September 2013 Volunteer of the Month.
