Opportunities for Service

 “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”  ~ Edward Everett Hale

 

Growth Through Service at All Souls

Service is a cornerstone of our Unitarian Universalist identity, and of All Souls membership.

Through service, not only do we play our part in healing our broken world, but we also find the opportunity to grow in our own faith and spirituality, and enhance our relationships with others. Here at All Souls, we strive to match our service opportunities to our members in ways that are fulfilling, feed our passions, and grow our souls. Our members can then joyfully serve, gaining a deeper connection to our faith, their personal spiritual journey, and our congregation as a whole. This is the goal of the Growth Through Service (GTS) program.

The first step in this process is to schedule a one-on-one (or couples) Conversation. Our GTS team members will listen carefully what they truly enjoy doing for others. In doing so, we increase their potential for growth - and the growth of the congregation, which is limited only by the vision and willingness of our membership.

Joyfully serving members will move us closer and closer to fulfilling our Mission of nurturing lifelong spiritual development, creating a welcoming, caring, justice-seeking community within and beyond these walls.

Contact us at volunteer@allsouls.net, or reach out to Karen Jones (860-917-8188) or Theresa Reynolds (860-460-5078) to schedule your Conversation TODAY!

 

Please also take a few minutes to complete our All Souls Time, Talents and Interests SurveyIt has been carefully crafted to help us better understand what you might be interested in sharing with your fellow Souls, and where we can best match current and future needs with your talents and availability in a way that will bring you joy.
