News

 

Rev. Nori announced this week that she will be leaving All Souls after 13 years of ministry. Her last Sunday in the “pulpit” (aka dining room chair, wearing comfy slippers) will be June 13th. Please click this link to read her letter explaining this move. She will also be speaking about this change during the May 16th Sunday service.

 

Meet Our New DRE!

We are pleased to announce and introduce our new DRE, Dee Koches!

Dee Koches

After beginning what would become a lifelong journey of mindfulness and yoga in 2013, Dee was captivated by the expansive beliefs, morals, and practices of different religions. With a love for creative and individual expression, she is looking forward to sharing a welcoming space with members of All Souls and connecting with the community’s impactful volunteers. Dee is excited to maintain and grow the RE program, ensuring individuals from all walks of life have a safe space to explore and express ideas, and to find their own path in their spiritual journey.

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  

Changed for Good

Join us on the 13th as we celebrate Rev. Nori’s 13 years of ministry at All Souls and say goodbye to this chapter of our lives. At her final service with us, Rev. Nori will speak about ways in which, because we’ve known one another, we have been changed for good, and how we’ve changed our communities for good, as well.
This service will be held at the church and on zoom. Masks will be required for those gathering at the church. Following this service there will be an outdoors reception for Rev. Nori, Beth Green and Mark Arnest. We will also celebrate flower communion, so please bring a favorite flower from your garden or the store to share!

Sunday Morning Listening Circles

Karla Crescenta will facilitate two Sunday morning Listening Circles in All Souls’ Garden, July 11 and August 8:30-9:30am. BYO chair, hat and water. All ages and genders are welcome. For more information contact Karla.

Spiritual Flow Yoga

Join Beth Green, RYT-500, on Wednesdays from 9:00-10:15am for a spiritual flow yoga class.  This class will be spiritually related to our monthly Soul Matters theme and contain centering, breathing practices, a gentle flow, and a short mediation.  Suggested Donations between $7-$15 (with 20% going back to the church) will be accepted by PayPal (bstanar@gmail.com) or Venmo (@BethGreenYoga) apps.  You can join with  this Zoom link either before or after you make a donation.

 

Community Caring Team

Thank you to the volunteers who donated up to 50 multi-item snack and drink packages for our house-less neighbors with COVID-19 who are currently sheltered at the City Auditorium.   A special thanks to the Community Caring Team members who picked up items from other donors and delivered them to the church.  Good work friends!

 

Fundemic Fundraiser

The first part of the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church annual fundraiser is now over.  Thanks to everyone that participated in the Online Auction. The second part, our traditional Auction Night, will happen in 2021 whenever we can hold it safely at the church.  Keep checking back for details!

 

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.
