Out of the Blues 

Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

Bring your friends and family along for a journey, from soulful blues to exciting colors of something new! The All Souls Worship Team has collaborated with poet Mia Wright and jazz vocalist Booker Gillispie to create an unforgettable experience in two special services. We’ll feature music from  Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, and Bob Dylan. Mia will share her poetry and words from Langston Hughes. David Smith, Rick Fortner, Jordan Hehl, Jared Johnson, and Tommy Poole will create an experience you wouldn’t want to keep to yourself!  

See you Sunday, 


These two special services are designed to bring attendees from each of our three services together. We encourage you to bring a friend or a family member to experience All Souls. Regular Children’s programs will take place and families are encouraged to attend either service. 


Monthly Themes

Though All Souls is active year round, from September through May, our congregation is organized around nine theological themes.

These themes provide a shared focus, giving our congregation the opportunity to gain greater clarity, meaning, and depth. Seriously engaging in these themes could transform your life!

Go deeper with our three year cycle of themes:

  1. Don’t miss your favorite service on the First Sunday of each month. A minister will introduce the theme. Additional services throughout the month may deal with different aspects of the theme as do our weekly Children's Chapel services and Children's and Youth programs.
  2. Attend our adult programming classes and events, Wednesday ConnectionsOnce a month our ministers hold a "Theme Talk" where they will offer their insights into to the theme and invite conversation.
  3. Check out All Souls exclusive blog, Engage in religiously liberal content curated from the heartland.
