17 March 2019 Worship Service and Religious Education for Children and Youth

Please join us on Sunday (17 March 2019) at 11:00 AM for “Dwelling in Peace … because It Matters” by Rev. Barbara Jarrell.

An important part of the task at hand is to learn how we speak with each other — and more importantly — how we listen to each other within our own walls.

Without this practice, we stand little chance of doing so in the wider world.

We are continuing this season’s focus on peace, social justice, and the interdependent web.

In this season of our church year, we honor our second principle (“justice, equity, and compassion in human relations”), our sixth principle (“the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all”) and our seventh principle (“respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part”).

Religious education classes for children and youth are offered during the 11:00 AM service.  Children and youth attend the first 15-20 minutes of the service and then are dismissed to class.

We will host another “Lunch and Learn” potluck with our Committee on Ministry after the worship service.

17 February 2019 All-Ages Worship

Please join us on Sunday (17 February 2019) at 11:00 AM for “Our Third Source: Learning and Growing with Love and Respect” with the children, youth, and adults of All Souls.
Capping this season’s focus on the third source of Unitarian Universalism (the wisdom of the world’s religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life), we will look at how we tell the stories that did not come from us and how we can learn and be nourished by those stories without stealing or misusing them or the traditions from which they come.
Give Away The Plate — For this Sunday, all of our non-pledge income will go to our Give Away the Plate recipient — Holy Cross Hope House.
Opened in 2004, Hope House is a ministry of Holy Cross Episcopal Church and a place where the church’s homeless neighbors can shower, receive mail, access telephones, and get fed.
Staff and volunteers help guests navigate the system to receive food stamps, Medicaid, and other services, and St. Luke’s Mobile Medical Van visits there twice a month.
Earlene Venable will be on hand to tell us more about this vital ministry in our community.
