• All Souls + 1921 Race Massacre History Tour | All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa is the story of people bearing the light of religious freedom in a city that is known for religious orthodoxy. Experience our captivating tour through downtown Tulsa interweaving the history of All Souls Church and the 1921 Race Massacre, concluding with our path to Building a 21st Century Church.
• 21st Century Choirs | Our seven choirs are intergenerational, intercultural, and interfaith, bringing inspiring and diverse music to our congregation. Join our esteemed Director of Music and Executive Director of Worship for an All Souls Choir experience, including singing with our choirs in worship on Sunday.
• Racial Identity Caucus Groups: SHĀDZ & REWIRE | Experience All Souls’ programs on racial identity. SHADZ is a racial identity group for people of color which equips participants with tools to effectively challenge racism and develop allies across racial lines. REWIRE is a racial identity group for white people to unlearn racism. Participants explore racial identity formation and learn how to be effective allies for racial justice.
• Doctors of Change: Effective Church Management | Like physicians, church leaders need to know what the problem is to manage it successfully. In order to make an accurate diagnosis, leaders will learn how to determine where your church is in its lifecycle, whether a problem is normal or abnormal, and what kind of treatment will be most successful.
• Spiritually-Centered Caregiving | Learn about our Pastoral Care program, with a foundation of spiritually- centered caregiving. Currently, our Pastoral Care Program has seven teams that are committed to serving our members and friends as they navigate life's passages, challenges, and transitions. This includes SpiritSong, where members offer the gift of song and spirit at the bedside of the dying.
• Small Group Ministry: Soulful Circles | Sample our small group ministry where groups explore spiritual themes and invest time in one’s own spiritual growth in a circle of mutual trust and respect.
