Car Camino Announcement

The All Souls Board has approved Rev. Nori’s Car Camino starting in late September.  To read the announcement and get more information, please click here.

In the face of an alarming rise in COVID 19 infections and deaths, Rev. Nori made the difficult decision to suspend her Car Camino through the holidays.  However, you can read all about it on her blog beginning with this post.  Or just go to her blog and scroll through the topics on the right hand side to pick and choose which ones you want to read.

 

Member Accounts

If you have received an email from our bookkeeper, Trudy Wells, inviting you to set up a member account on Breeze, rest assured this is a legitimate email and it is safe for you to use the link within.
 

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.

 

Events and Events Calendar

Fundemic Fundraiser

 
The All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church annual fundraiser is now live online! You can bid on items from the comfort of your laptop, desktop, pad/tablet, or smartphone. You can also donate to the church in lieu of bidding.

The All Souls Auction is the FUNdraising event of the year – but we’re doing it in two parts this year. The first part is our Online Auction, which started on October 17th and will last two months until December 17th, 2020. We’re still accepting donations! The second part, our traditional Auction Night, will happen in 2021 whenever we can hold it safely at the church.
Check this out to donate and bid!

 

Help Needed For Shipping Books Internationally

Do you remember all the way back to February 2020 when we were collecting books for a school in Africa?? Well, we did, and COVID hit so we couldn’t ship in the spring. Luckily, we can now ship again to Kenya and we got a TON of books. Shipping internationally is different from sending things in the US and our DRE needs some help to pack up these books. To ship these, the books need to be packed in large manila envelopes under 4 pounds (these will be weighed by the USPS). If you have some time and a way to weigh books in an envelope, please reach out to Beth Green. I’ll then plan a supply pick up and drop off time for volunteers. Thanks for considering!
 

Running For Our Lives Virtual 5K

It’s not too late to join the virtual race for justice!  Click on the link below to register for Running for Our Lives virtual 5K being sponsored by All Souls and the Paraclete Project.  Our goal is to raise $5,000 for https://truthandconciliation.org/.

 

Faith Forward

Our next adult RE workshop will be held on Sunday, 12/6, from 12-1:30pm. This workshop is the first of a series of three all co-led by Rev. Nori Rost and Beth Green. Join our first workshop to dive into the roots of Unitarians and Universalists. We’ll learn about some important figures for both faith traditions and explore questions of conscience, love, resilience and courage. The second workshop in UU History 101 will be held in January as we explore the merger of our 2 faiths and ending in February with Transcendentalism. All workshops can be attended independently and do not need to be taken altogether.
-Sunday 12/6 12-1:30pm : “UU History 101: A Question of Conscious” with Rev Nori Rost and Beth Green.
No registration is required, simply zoom in and be a part of this great workshop!
 

Calling for RE Volunteers

All are invited to our volunteer information/orientation sessions! A lot of our past RE volunteers are educators and currently employed in the school systems. As you can imagine, they are very overwhelmed this year, understandably, and cannot commit to helping out in RE this year. However, we cannot run our program without volunteers! If you’re interested in volunteering this year in e-RE, contact Beth.

 

The Paraclete Project

The Paraclete Project, organized by Rev. Nori, seeks to help educate and increase awareness in people who identify as white so that they move from being allies to becoming accomplices to the BIPOC movements. She is looking for a minimum of 25 people who identify as white and are willing to become educated and more aware of white privilege, power, and supremacy. Our goal is to move folx from being white allies to accomplices in the BIPOC movements. Our prime partnership is with Truth and Conciliation. If you haven’t done so already, the first step is to head to their site and sign the pledge.
