This Week in CYP

For Sunday, October 29, 2017

Dear All Souls Family and Friends,

It’s going to be a weird but fabulous Sunday!

Here’s what’s new and different:

  • Entering through the foyer. The CRE and West Channing Entrance will not be open on Sunday, so families will need to enter through the main foyer.
  • All families are asked to attend the intergenerational Dia de los Muertos 10’clock service. This service will be very child-friendly! Please bring a memento or photograph to put on the altar during the service. 
  • Childcare is available for pre-k and younger during the 10 o’clock service. You may check in at theFamily Room station.
  • Check-in in the foyer. We will have a children’s and youth check-in station set up in the foyer, so that you can check your children into programming if they are staying after the Dia de los Muertos service.
  • Regular children’s and youth programs follow the 10 o’clock service.


  • Lunch and Intergenerational Pansy Planting in the Memorial Garden.  On Sunday,1:00-3:00 pm, join us for a soup lunch ($3/$5) and help us make the Memorial Garden beautiful for the fall.  Come ready to dig in the dirt and plant a flower for a loved one.  We'll have spades, trowels and gloves on hand.
  • Our Halloween Party takes place Monday, October 30. We will be setting up on Sunday, October 29 starting at 1:30, so if you are sans kids we would welcome your help in setting up for the party.
  • Kindergarten following the 10 o’clock service, the kindergarteners will gather in the Chapel to practice the service they will lead next Sunday at 11:30.
  • 7th and 8th grade youth group meets this Sunday, 1:00-2:30 pm, for lunch and to set up their haunted house for the party on Monday.  If at all possible, have your middle schoolers to the church by 5:0 pm on Monday for pizza before the scaring commences.
