Covid-19 Update Due to the pandemic, we have suspended in-person services and church meetings through December, 2020. Services and groups meet online at their regularly scheduled times. All are welcome.
Come as you are - leave inspired. Dress comfortably. Some of us like to wear our 'Sunday best' ... some wear jeans.
All are welcome to our Spiritual Celebration (service)Sunday at 10:30 am September through June with coffee hour at 11:30. This informal coffee hour after Sunday morning service is a great way to get to know us. It is a casual time to chat with everyone and get your questions answered. Mid-June to mid-September, we have an informal service in our Parish Hall. (No coffee hour in summer).
There are greeters at every service and we are happy to help. We encourage you to come to Sunday morning service. A great time for reflection, music and connecting with our community. There are many ways to be a part of All Souls in addition to attending Sunday morning services.
Child Dedications Rather than holding baptisms or christenings, Unitarian Universalist congregations have child dedication ceremonies for infants and children.Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parent and the minister, working closely together. Many will include the following elements:
A blessing for the new life of the child
An expression of the parent or parents’ hopes for the child
A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child
If you are interested in having your child dedicated, please contact us. See Events and Meetings for activities that you may be interested in. We have ongoing group meetups you are welcome to participate in.
