Worship 

Worship is the glowing center of our congregational life.  Enlivened with music, story, and sacred text drawing from the world’s faith traditions, it is “time to pay attention to one’s life” – as a wise congregant once described – and to shore up strength for the week ahead.  At All Souls we remind ourselves and each other that “church” is really what happens when we leave the building and use what we have received at All Souls to bless the world. 


 


Month by month, All Souls’ services are guided by “ministry themes.”  
Each Sunday, the worship leader considers the theme from a different angle than the week before.
To give you a sense of how this works, the 2019 – 2020 themes are as follows:

September -  Transition

October - Atonement

November - At Home

December - Light

January - Deepening

February - Promise

March - Faith

April - Sacred Design

May - Grace

 

Summer services start the last weekend of June and run through Labor Day. There is only one service during the summer and it begins at 10 am.  Children from kindergarten through fourth grade gather for “Summer Fun and Games”.  Children fifth grade and older are encouraged to attend the service – lighter in nature and shorter in the summertime. 
 
Music is an important aspect of our services.  Our choir is 25 voices strong (and always happy to welcome new singers!).  We are a singing congregation!  A wide range of musical genres enhances our worship experience. 
 
A coffee hour follows the service.  Newcomers are encouraged to stay and visit the Welcome Table which is staffed by congregants who look forward to meeting you.  There you will find materials on Unitarian Universalism and All Souls. 
 
Welcome to All Souls!  We look forward to welcoming you to Unity Hall on Sunday morning!

We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
