Worship

We need not worship alike to love alike.

Our Covenant is the promise that binds us together as a community.  It is spoken aloud at every service.

Love is the Spirit of this church and Service is its law.
This is our great covenant; to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.

We look forward to welcoming you at All Souls.

Two Sunday Services from Memorial Day to Labor Day! 

Summer Sundays

Trading Places 

10:10 a.m. Worship in the Sanctuary 

11:30 a.m. The Point, Humanist Hour in Emerson Hall 

All Souls summer of services are on the theme of “Trading Places.” Our ministers, musicians and members will be exploring what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes or to experience a major life change. In a time when our country is becoming more siloed, segmented, and splintered we are challenging each other to venture outside our comfort zones so that we can build bridges of understanding.   

For example:    

  • Barbara is learning from Rev. Gerald Davis how to walk and live as a person who cannot see. One June 9th they will share the experience.  

  • On Father’s Day, Marlin will talk about his experiment letting his 10 year old daughter be the parent for a day. And Carlton Pearson and his daughter Majeste, along with David Smith, will lead the Point. 

  • Marlin will also trade places with Rabbi Michael Weinstein, the new rabbi at Temple Israel, who will speak in the sanctuary service on July 14.   

  • Join us to learn about life in prison or being homeless or embodying a gender other than the one assigned at birth. 

"Trading Places" will take us to places we have never been before!

The Point, Humanist Hour in Emerson Hall at 11:30 a.m. each Sunday will remain mostly the same this summer, but with some special guests and unexpected surprises.   

Sunday services in the sanctuary will be at 10:10 a.m.  and will not be Traditional or Contemporary, but something new and different for the summer.   

We hope you will try both services and stay engaged! 

See you Sundays this summer, 

Marlin, Barbara and the All Souls Worship Team
