Saturday, August 24th- 2nd Annual All hands, All Souls In service Day 10:00am-2:00pm

Join us for a day of volunteerism and community building at the church, as we prepare the building, grounds, and programs for the new church year. It is our hope that this day of service will help us grow as a community, and put practice to nurturing our Beloved Community. This day is an opportunity to reconnect with fellow church members and congregants within our spiritual home. It’s an opportunity for spiritual renewal in preparation for the external service we do within the greater community. It’s an opportunity to help continue the healing process while engaging ourselves. Sign up  to volunteer in various areas across the church.

Invitation to join the Young Souls POC Caucus

The YS POC Caucus was founded early in 2018, in recognition of the need for a Young Soul POC space. They are currently opening the group to new YS POC members! The caucus is a chance for people of color in our community to gather for fun activities (dinner parties, game nights, book circles etc.) or more serious conversations (discussions on making All Souls an inclusive and affirming space etc.). If you are interested in joining, fill out this form and a member of the caucus will reach out to you. Please feel free to email us ( or Alice Newberry (, a founding member of the caucus and former YS Social Justice Chair, if you have any questions!

Interested in joining Souls in the Center? Looking for leadership fun?

Souls in the Center is a fellowship of members and friends of All Souls from ages thirty+. Announcement: We are looking for new leadership at Souls in the Center! Specifically, we are looking for a communications guru and a few social chairs, to help plan and host small events every month starting in September.  It’s a low stakes job commitment-wise, but lets you be creative and meet fun people. Any questions? Email us at  

While our regularly scheduled Happy Hour will be on hiatus until September, and potlucks may be sparse, you can still be on the lookout for games days, movie club days and other ad hoc meetups by clicking here to join the listserv; here to join the Facebook group and here to add the Google Calendar. We also started a Movie Club – join here for that! 

Seeking Ushers for Sunday services

Ushers welcome congregants and visitors, hand out the orders of service, and help everything run smoothly and safely. The commitment is only one service each month, so it’s a great way to get involved. Contact Mark Matthews at ( to learn more or sign up.
