“Reel Spirituality” – Wednesday Series

Facilitator:  Wellford Tiller

April 26 — Chariots of Fire (1982)

May 3 — The Mission (1986)

May 10 — Les Miserables (2012)

Movies entertain us.  But they can also make us think and feel.  A film does not have to be specifically ‘Christian’ to help us ‘think Christianly’ about our world.  On these three Wednesday evenings, we will look at clips from the movies listed and discuss the issues they raise for us as people of faith.  While it is not necessary, you may wish to watch the entire film in advance of each discussion.

All are invited to join us, Wednesdays at 6:15pm.

Food for Venable Elementary Students

Each Wednesday night our Children’s Mission Program will be assembling 12 bags of healthy, non-perishable food to go in weekend backpacks for children at Venable Elementary School.  This backpack program at Venable provides meals and snacks  for the weekend for families who are currently unable to provide meals for the family.  All Souls Church is partnering with UBC to collect food for these weekend bags.  You can help by donating packages of 12 or more of the following foods:

  • Oatmeal, Grits, Cream of wheat, Individual cereal, Breakfast bars
  • Soup, Chili, Instant noodles, Peanut butter/cheese crackers
  • Mac & cheese, Canned chicken, Canned Ravioli, Canned Beefaroni, Canned Spaghetti, Canned Beans
  • Protein bars, Fruit cups, Raisins, Popcorn, Pudding, Pretzels
  • Shelf-stable milk boxes, Juice boxes

Look for collection boxes on the stage in the fellowship hall, and in the first floor lobby.

Updates Needed for UBC Directory

An updated UBC Directory will be distributed in April. Please contact the church office with any updates to your address, phone number, or email. If you’d like a new photo included in the directory, please send that in as well. Alternatively, find Will Brown to take your picture before or after worship.
