Affirmation Sunday All-Ages Worship (12 June 2022)

Please join us on Sunday (12 June 2022) at 11:00 AM for “The Light at the End of the Tunnel” — an Affirmation Sunday Service honoring our
high school graduate Andrew Lawrence and a recent college graduate.

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.

Although the number of new COVID cases and hospitalizations has increased in the Shreveport metro area, we are still safe to have to in-person worship at this time.

When we are indoors at All Souls, we will continue to require proof of vaccination for all attendees ages 11 and up.  However, if you cannot be vaccinated, we also accept a negative COVID test in the past 24 hours.  We are also required the wearing of masks for all in-person attendees.

Religious education classes for children and youth resumes this Sunday as well.  The children and youth will be with us for the first 15-20 minutes of the worship service before we sing them out to their classes.

Our June 2022 give-away-the-plate recipient is Louisiana Trans Advocates.

While we are remaining physically distant, we want to know how you are doing, what you need, and what you are interested in.  You can let us know using these online surveys.

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

  • Day 28 — “You and Your Commitments”
  • After Day 28 — “Now What?”

Tie-Dye Sunday (5 June 2022)

This Sunday an All Souls summer tradition returns — Tie-Dye in the Religious Education Wing.

Children are asked to bring a 100% cotton t-shirt or other cotton garment to tie-dye for themselves or for any special grownups in their lives.

We will have a few extra shirts, bandanas, and mini tote bags on hand — donations for those are welcome — but by bringing your own you have a better guarantee of getting the size you want.

We still can use some extra adult help with this project.  It will all be set up for you in advance and the instructions at each station are very clear.

Want to dye more than one garment? That’s more than likely possible, but will depend on how many kids and how long the dye lasts, so prioritize your favorite.

Of course adults who attend service and would like to tie dye afterward will be welcome as long as the dye lasts.

Note — We have not yet brought back nursery care for the littlest among us, who cannot be vaccinated against COVID.

However, infants and toddlers are welcome to be with their parents in the sanctuary.  We are very OK with baby noises and toddler wiggles.
