Worship Service and RE are Returning to Online-only

We will still follow the UUA guidelines and base our reopening status on El Paso County’s Covid risk level as shown on the COVID Act Now website.  We will continue to meet online-only – including Worship Services and Religious Exploration – until our COVID risk level has continuously been below Very High Risk for at least three weeks AND we continue to see a downward trend in the risk data. For our youth, we are being even more careful. RE will remain online-only until the risk level is below Very High for at least three weeks, we see a downward trend in the data, AND for at least one month after children age 5 to 12 are able to be vaccinated.
Small gatherings (less than 10 people) in the church are currently allowed as long as the group meets these requirements: 1) all participants must be masked and socially distanced, and 2) you must reserve your space in advance (including providing a contact person) with the church office. We encourage everyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to get vaccinated as soon as possible. To see where you can get vaccinated, visit the Where Can I Get a Vaccine? page of the El Paso County Public Health website.

 

Worship Support Volunteers Needed

Our A/V Team needs more folks to run the slide show and live-stream the A/V feed to our remote audience. Training will be provided. If you’re interested, email Rick Schwartz, Production Coordinator.

 

Services available in the City of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.

Colorado Springs Resources are available at HELPCOS, a list of services available in the City of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.  Check here for those experiencing homelessness.

 

Partners in Housing

Our friends at Partners in Housing are in need of paper products such as paper towels, bathroom tissue, napkins, etc. They could also use cleaning supplies like dish soap, scouring powder, glass cleaner, etc. These items are stocked in the store where their families can shop free, thus helping to stretch their grocery money. A donation box is in the hall just outside the door to the great hall and your support will be appreciated.

 

King Soopers Rewards

The format for the use of King Soopers gift cards to donate money to All Souls has changed. You no longer need to have a physical gift card to designate funds for ASUUC. Go to the King Soopers website and sign in with your account or make a new account to go with your SooperCard. Once you do that, go the CommunityRewards website and search for “All Souls Unitarian.” Click the “Enroll” button, and you’re all set! Every time you shop at King Soopers, a portion of your purchase amount will be donated to ASUUC. There is no cost to you and the money is automatically donated to All Souls.
