Getting Involved

At All Souls there are lots of ways you can become involved in our mission, whether you have very limited time available or can devote a significant amount of time.  Keep reading to learn more about all the ways to get involved, regardless of if it’s the occasional Sunday morning or a deeper commitment through our teams and groups.

Sunday MorningsStanding TeamsAffinity & Covenant Groups

Sunday Mornings

These short-term commitments (typically 2 hours or less) are perfect if you are short on time but still want to contribute to our community.

 

Hospitality!

Who doesn’t like to eat and drink? At All Souls we provide a fabulous opportunity for both, following the service. And we are always looking for foodies to help us make this happen. If hospitality is your thing, please contact Terry Schultz.

 

Greeting!

We rely on a team of friendly, outgoing folks to staff the Visitors Table each Sunday to make sure everyone who walks through the doors feels welcomed. If that sounds like you, contact the Membership Team for more information.

 

Projecting!

If Tech is more your thing, we are always looking for volunteers to do the A/V on Sunday mornings. Contact Andy Walker if that’s where you’d like to be involved.

 

Singing!

We have a choir and band led by our Music Director.

 

Sharing!

If you’d like to offer to do a Story for All Ages or help with our children and youth Religious Exploration Program, contact our DRE.

 

Ushering!

We are always looking for responsible folks who make sure everyone is seated and comfortable, take up the offering and help count the collections following the service. If that sounds like you, contact August Mergelman.

Standing Teams

These teams meet and work regularly throughout the year to keep All Souls running strong on every level.

 

Building and Grounds Team

The Building and Grounds team is responsible for the upkeep, maintenance and on-going beautification of our historic building and grounds, taking on everything from painting, to fixing plumbing problems, to overseeing the major Facilities Enhancement project. Let Gary Harrison know if you have skills to help.

 

Care Team

The Care Team responds to people in the congregation who are experiencing crisis and significant life changes. The team cares for sickness, pain, tears, joy and happiness. This team meets formally about twice a year, and does much of the coordinating through emails. If this sounds like something for you, let the Care Team know you are available.

 

Membership Team

The Membership Team welcomes visitors and helps facilitate each visitor becoming an official, active member of the ASUUC community.  The team works on a series of interim activities to encourage volunteerism and develop leadership. Contact the Membership Team for more info about this team.

 

Worship and Sunday Celebration Team

This team meets monthly to discuss ways to enrich our Sunday services through art, music, drama, and more. Contact Ministry Team if you are interested in working with the Worship and Sunday Celebration Team.

Affinity & Covenant Groups

Looking for more of a social, intellectual, or spiritual connection? Our Covenant and Affinity Groups might be more your style. These groups typically meet once or twice a month over a variety of topics for interests. Check out the News & Events page for current meeting times and places.

 

Book Group

The All Souls Book Group chooses books to read each month and then meets once a month for a discussion of that month’s book. Selections include both fiction and non-fiction.  Contact the group facilitator,  Bonnie Corwin, to receive an email before each meeting to remind everyone of the schedule and get the Zoom meeting link.
