What a Church Is and What It Isn't 
10:00 a.m. Traditional Service

Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

All Souls is known for our ministers preaching impactful sermons that benefit our church and Tulsa community. In preparation for our Centennial in 2021 we are bringing some of those amazing sermons back! Join Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar as he reimagines Rev. Dr. John Wolf's sermon from 1960 and how it applies to the church we know today.  

-------- 

Soul Mates vs. Soul Ties
11:30 a.m. Contemporary

Carlton D. Pearson

A Soul Mate is described as a person with whom one has a feeling of deep or natural affinity. This may involve similarity, love, romance, platonic relationships, comfort, intimacy, sexuality, spirituality, compatibility and trust. Soul Ties are connections from one person's soul to (or into) another person's soul. They are emotional bonds that form an attachment, whether for good or for bad. Join me Sunday for a healthy discussion on the good, the bad and the ugly around unhealthy covenants.    

-------- 

Ancient Wisdom | Modern Science
11:30 a.m. The Point, Humanist Hour

Mariela Pérez-Simons

This Sunday, at The Point, we will explore the place where ancient wisdom and modern science meet, the place where the yearnings of the human soul can be met, and where we find the right conditions for the flourishing of life! 

 



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, BeyondBelief.online. Engage in religiously liberal content curated from the heartland.
