18 months ago, four people from All Souls went on a trip to South Africa to witness firsthand the incredible needs that orphans in that country have; and to explore ways that All Souls could be a part of helping.
We concluded that the need is very great and that we believe God is calling All Souls to partner with Mosaic (a wholistic, South African led organization that seeks to support families who have taken in orphans).
Come hear a short presentation from Meyer Conradie (founder and CEO of Mosaic) over lunch with opportunities to ask questions. We'll also be using this time to explore our next trip to South Africa as a church.
ASM FAMILY DINNER
March 8th will kickoff what we hope will become a somewhat regular (think 2-3 times per year, not weekly or monthly) occurrence at All Souls - we're calling it "Family Dinner", but it's much more than just a gathering around food. Imagine a catered dinner, adult conversation about topics that really matter, learning from our community, growing in grace together, praying with and for one another, and amazing childcare provided.
And you don't have to spend any money. It's completely FREE! But you do have to RSVP, which you can easily do by clicking here and filling out the form.
CHILDCARE: check-in starting at 6:00. Come to the Public House and we will direct you to where the kids will be upstairs. We have hired our very own gymnastics star, Megan Perry as well as Coach Shane to hang with kids. We will provide dinner for them as well.
An art exhibit featuring 14 original pieces, carefully selected to speak to the theme of the international plight of human trafficking. The exhibit attempts to raise awareness about the realities and effects of human trafficking and other forms of violent oppression in the world today.
The exhibit will be facilitated by Alyssa Wilson, a recent graduate from the U of M (and regular at All Souls).
Following our Christmas Eve Service, we'll be having our annual Christmas Party for friends and members. It will kickoff around 8 PM at the Public House. Please bring cookies, pretzels, fruit, or other goodies to share. We'll take care of making sure the bar is stocked.
This Christmas Eve, we'll be hosting our annual Christmas Eve Service at the newly opened Public House! It's a small, intimate gathering to celebrate the coming of Christ through music, Scripture, and friendship. Our friends tell us this is one of the most beautiful things All Souls does.
There will be an informal reception following at 8 PM (think drinks, snacks, goodies and a chance to wish one another a Merry Christmas!). So bring some snacks to share and we'll take care of stocking the bar with Christmas goodies!
This is a great way to do something meaningful for Christmas and explore the Christian faith, regardless of your spiritual convictions (or lack thereof). Come participate in a tradition that is at least 1500 years old. Your kids will love it, and so will you. We'd love to have you join us!
After a year of remodeling the street level space in the historic Masonic Temple, we are excited to celebrate our Grand Opening of worship and formally share this space with the community and all our friends!

Come join with our city to promote and learn about God's heart for justice! There will be activities for kids of all ages as well as a BBQ following our service in the park. If you are from All Souls, please bring a bag of chips to share for the BBQ.

Nielen and Lulu Bekker of Mosaic South Africa will be in Missoula the weekend of April 17th and our goal is to give you plenty of opportunities to get to know them and hear how God is moving amongst and meeting the needs of orphans and their families through the ministries of Mosaic.
There are several ways for you to participate in the weekend's events:
Sunday, April 17 - Nielen will be bringing God's word to us and sharing during our worship service. Following worship, the Sutherland's (2704 Emery Place) will host an informal potluck lunch at their house where you can ask Nielen and Lulu questions and get to know them.
Monday, April 18 at 6:30 PM - We will host a gathering at New Hope Fellowship (336 Livingston Ave) where we will hear more about their ministry as well as the exciting things Nathaniel Hurley is doing in Burma.
Join us this Easter Sunday as we explore one of the most significant claims in Christianity - Christ's Resurrection! For nearly two millennia, followers of Jesus from all over globe have radically reoriented their lives around this particular Sunday. What's the big deal? Come see for yourself.
The service itself will last about an hour and a half (and there's coffee!). Together, we'll read, sing pray, and ponder. There's a nursery space and children's worship for kids 5 and under.
Whether you are a longtime follower of Jesus, or simply someone who's spiritually curious, we'd love to have you explore faith with us!
