14 April 2019 All-Ages Worship Service

Please join us on Sunday (14 April 2019) at 11:00 AM for “How Beautiful — A Service in Celebration of the Home We Share” with special guest musicians George Hancock, Alan Dyson, Maurice White, and Paula O’Neal.

This is the second Sunday of Faith Climate Action Week, Palm Sunday on the Christian liturgical calendar, and the end of our season of focus on peace, social justice, and the interdependent web.

Instead of individual class presentations from the children and youth, the service will feature participatory elements for all ages as well as lots of music.  We will also have a new member signing ceremony.

Pride in the Park has moved to Sunday afternoon — and we all plan to be there but please join us for this worship service before going to Pride.

The event will now be happening on Sunday (14 April 2019) from noon to 5:00 PM.

And the community-based Our Whole Lives Grades 10-12 sexuality education course that is hosted by All Souls will not meet on Sunday afternoon.

Many of our OWL class facilitators and youth participants will be attending Pride in the Park and promoting the Our Whole Lives values in their daily lives.

She has organized locally for the national 350.org movement and — in addition to various environmental issues — has worked on women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and various election campaigns.

And this Sunday will be the last day for our spring plant sale.

Please join us on Sunday (31 March 2019) at 11:00 AM for “A Seat at the Table” by Lee Jeter.

Join us as we welcome back Lee Jeter (Executive Director of the Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana).  He is one of our most requested guest speakers.

His message of empowerment and inclusion will be taken from Luke 14:10 in the Bible.

This is our monthly “Give Away the Plate Sunday” and the Fuller Center will be the recipient of this Sunday’s non-pledge collection.  Remember that if you only bring one check, you can indicate on the memo line the proportions allotted to All Souls and the Fuller Center.

Adult Religious Education — 31 March 2019

Please join us on Sunday (31 March 2019) at 9:15 AM for our adult religious education class.  We will have a presentation on “Spread the Vote” with Candice Battiste (Director of Spread the Vote Louisiana).

Spread the Vote is a national organization that empowers and educates voters and also helps them to obtain the necessary state photo IDs to exercise their voting rights and participate in many other basic, daily activities of citizenship that many of us take for granted.

From the Louisiana Spread the Vote Facebook page:

Without ID it is almost impossible to obtain legal employment, to find housing, or even needed medical care. At Spread The Vote + Project ID , we work every day to help the most vulnerable members of our communities obtain the little card that changes lives.
