Heaven & Helles - Men’s Beer and Cheese

 

Friday, Aug. 25, 7 pm

Join Us

The oldest recipe known to man is for beer. In the Middle Ages, men subsisted on beer when water was too dangerous to drink. Beer brings people together and enlivens the affections. Cheese is its natural accompaniment. Raw milk, inoculated and aged to perfection, transforms from mere white liquid to subtle flavors that complement the fermented grain. This event is at 195 Lamont Drive in Decatur.

Cost is $10 (pay online or bring cash to event).

Beta Groups

 

Starting in September

(Email Mark to join a group!)

We invite you to “beta test” community life by joining a Beta Group. Beta Groups are ten-week Community Groups that start in September and are designed especially for those who are new to our church, new to Community Groups, or interested in exploring Christianity.

Beta Groups feature the following:

  • New members: There is no need to be nervous about your first meeting! Everyone will be new to the group.
  • Community life: It is easy to feel lost in a new city and disconnected in church. As a member of a Beta Group, you will be part of a smaller community, allowing you to build friendships with a group of people who grow to know and care about each other.

Beta Group Leaders are:

Both of these groups will be studying Romans alongside the sermon series.

For more information about Beta Community Groups, please contact Mark Grapengater at mark@allsoulsfellowship.org.

Sacred Enneagram Workshop

 

Sat., Sept. 16, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

Join Us

(The price of the workshop is $125, which also includes a lunch, a copy of Heuertz’ latest book, and childcare* for All Souls members and attenders.)


 

All Souls is pleased to be hosting a one-day workshop with author/speaker Chris Heuertz, who says of the often-misunderstood Enneagram Type: “The Enneagram gives us a framework for thinking about why we react and respond in the ways that we do...ultimately, the Enneagram reveals our best, truest self with its potential to heal a world in need.”

At the workshop, Heuertz will cover topics to help us come to terms with our gifts as well as the addictive, psychological patterns that tether us to our greatest interpersonal, spiritual and emotional challenges. Whether you’ve heard of the Enneagram or not, this workshop is for anyone who’s interested in learning more.

*Please email alisha@allsoulsfellowship.org to sign up for childcare. Thanks!

Sunday Volunteers Needed

 

Urgent Need for Ongoing Positions

Join Us

To be a part of All Souls is to live a life of serving. This begins within the church as each week people dive into serving in children’s ministry, greeting, helping set up, or even making coffee. We truly exist as a church because of our volunteers.

It is from this discipline of serving that we are then able to love our communities, our city, and our world well.

It takes over 200 volunteers to make Sunday morning happen for the year, but many positions only require serving once a month! (Sunday School teachers serve twice per month.)

Feeling unsure about what it takes to volunteer? Don't worry! We will be having Volunteer Training, Saturday,  July 29– 9-10:30 am at All Souls. Join us for breakfast, perspective for ministry and training for your specific volunteer role. (Please come even if you have already been serving.)

Support and Encourage our Global Partners

 

Ongoing

Serve our Missionaries

All Souls believes our local and global neighbors matter. Therefore, we help support our local friends as they go abroad to serve the world. We wholeheartedly stand behind our friends that partner with urban Christian churches and non-profit organizations (NPO). We long to see the needs or our global neighbors met -  emotionally, physically and spiritually.

We currently support the following global partners:

France: Suzy Grumelot

Guatemala : Tammy Huizenga

Honduras: Seth & Renee McLaughlin

Italy: Tommy & Sara Annest

Thailand: Tim & Rhianna Mills

Thailand (2018): John & Julie Bowles

Uganda: Mike & Kris Reid

We want to be a body that connects with and encourages our global partners in very personal and meaningful ways. Here are a few ways you can help serve:

 

  • One of the most important ways you can serve our missionaries is to actively engage in God’s work among the nations through prayer. Take time to pray for the country, work, school, relationships, ministries, faith, encouragement, health, safety, wisdom, special events and day-to-day of these families.
  • Read and reply to updates.
  • Send an email, card, or care package.
  • Sacrificially fund their work.

 

Talk to a missions team member for more information and ideas (contact tafanie@allsoulsfellowship.org).

 

...and Go

Many of our missionaries were once members locally here at All Souls, but God called them to serve Him in cities around the world.

We expect God to call and send even more of our people to share the Gospel overseas. Are you interested in worshipping, serving and developing relationships cross-culturally?

Email tafanie@allsoulsfellowship.org for resources on exploring this potential call.
