As we step into April, we move away from March’s theme of ‘Brokenness’ to embraching ‘Transformation.’ This month, let’s journey together through change, growth and renewal through insightful sermons, uplifting music, and fellowship. Join us each Sunday, in-person or online.

Our youth will be featured in 2 services in April. Coming of Age, April 14 in both services. And Youth Sunday, April 28, in both services.April Service Schedule:

  • April 14 Coming of Age: In addition to our regular services, we’re excited to have our Coming of Age class join us to present their Credos. It’s your chance to witness their powerful voices and show them support as they mark their own transformative journeys.
  • April 21 New Member Recognition: This Sunday, in both services, we’re excited to recognize all our new members who have joined since October 2023! Is that you? Watch your email for an invitation. Been a member a while? Make sure you come to show your support for all our new ones!
  • April 28 Youth Sunday: Don’t miss this youthled service, showcasing the talents and insights of our vibrant youth! It’s the service Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar has called, “the best service of the year.”

    Healing & Holding Grief | 1pm | Thoreau Lounge:
    Grief is all around us and within us. Who hasn’t suffered a loss of some kind? Loved ones, relationships, careers, dreams, and so on. Grief is a normal and natural part of life and yet we seldom learn what grief is all aabout and how to honor its sacred calling to healing and growth. In this program, we will explore grief and loss through personal sharing, support, and education about the grief process.

    We need not worship alike to love alike.

    All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church does not follow a particular doctrine or creed, but follows the Unitarian Universalist theology of radical acceptance and inclusiveness. Love and community are at the heart of each service. Ministers and guest speakers draw wisdom from the world’s religions, philosophy, literature, science, poetry and the natural world in order to deliver messages relevant to our times.

    Our covenant, a promise we make to each other, unifies All Souls members across a wide variety of perspectives and beliefs. 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.
