All Souls is a vibrant, growing congregation with many activities for members and friends.
All Souls Choir/Holtkamp Organ
Under the outstanding direction of Greg Sanders, the choir provides an important part of the worship experience through music. The choir is open to all who love to sing. Rehearsals are held from 8:45-10:15 a.m. each Sunday before the service. The choir also performs a winter and spring program each year.
This beautiful instrument in our choir loft was one of the last organs designed by Walter Holtkamp, Sr., and is considered to be one of the finest examples of the work of this famous company. It was installed in 1962 and underwent a complete restoration in 2007. In recent years, the church has held a series of recitals presented by many accomplished organists. All Souls’ organ accompanist is the talented Tiantian Liang.
A wide selection of books is available for checkout in the library at the north end of the building.
Books about Unitarian Universalism and other topics are for sale in a corner of the Social Hall. Books authored by All Souls’ members are featured.
This autonomous group is devoted to social and cultural activities, service to the church, personal support to members, and the pursuit of fun! Past activities include concerts, dinners, sporting events, theater productions, holiday parties, wine tastings and hosting bake sales. The Channing Club raises and donates money to support church projects.
Church Government Meetings
The All Souls Board of Trustees meets on the second Wednesday evening of the month. The Church Council, which coordinates programming and events, meets on the third Wednesday of each month, except December, June, July, and August.
All members and visitors are invited to gather in the Social Hall after each Sunday service to enjoy coffee, tea, snacks, and conversation.
Each October, the church hosts a weekend at a wooded camp facility in Brown County, Indiana. Many church members and families look forward to the getaway each year, which often includes canoeing, hiking, hayrides, bonfires and pumpkin carving, as well as a Sunday morning worship service.
Movies with Heart and Soul
Movies chosen from film festivals are shown, usually the first Friday evening each month, showcasing stories filled with values and inspiring life experiences. A pitch-in dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Beattie Room, and the movie begins at about 7:00 p.m., followed by a brief discussion.
All Church Game Night & Pitch-In
This is usually on the 3rd Friday of the month (check the calendar to verify). It starts at 6:30 in the Beattie Room with a pitch-in. Games start around 7 and we’re usually done by 10. This is a non-denominational group so feel free to bring friends and family. There is no cost and church membership is not required. Games, cards, etc. are provided but feel free to bring your favorites. Contact Betty Lynch @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 317-459-9230 for more information.
