All Ages Worship (9 June 2024)

Please join us this Sunday (9 June 2024) at 11:00 AM for “Space:  For All Humankind” with guest speaker Krystle Beauchamp (NASA Solar System Ambassador).

Please join us this Sunday at a service for all ages featuring Krystle Beauchamp who will talk to all of us about her role as a Solar System Ambassador for NASA.

When she is not working her day job as Director of Communications for the Caddo Parish Commission, she embraces the opportunity to share her love of all things space with people of all ages.

Please join us for this astronomical experience.

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 June 2024 give-away-the-plate recipient is Louisiana Trans Advocates.

Please join us on Friday (14 June 2024) at 6:00 PM for a screening of the documentary film The Holy Land Five (a film by Mohammad Omar).

This film is a documentary exploring the arrest, trial, and subsequent sentencing of five leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (the largest Muslim charity in the US until after 9/11 when it was shut down, assets seized, and leaders arrested by the FBI).

The film features interviews with defense and prosecution attorneys, witnesses, and family members as well as courtroom recreations looking back at the case.

We will have a discussion afterward.

This event is sponsored by the Shreveport chapter of Unitarian Universalists for Justice in the Middle East.
