10:00 a.m. & 11:30 a.m. 

Extraordinary Chords of Love 

Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

Musical Artist: Branjae Jackson
Spoken Word Artist: Written Quincey
Jazz Band: Rick Fortner, Jordan Hehl, Jared Johnson, Tommy Poole

To celebrate our January theme of Love, the All Souls worship team collaborated with local soul, jazz, funk singer Branjae Jackson, poet Written Quincey, and some of Oklahoma’s premier jazz musicians to create a service not to be missed. Chords of harmony are created when different notes come together in their individual beauty to create something new and creating something new, together, is what these special services are all about. We do not have to sound alike or even sound the same. In fact, by sounding differently and coming together in unity — we make room for something greater to emerge. 

Join your All Souls community for a unique and inclusive service, Extraordinary Chords of Love. The music will inspire, the poetry will touch and uplift, and the overall experience will be one to remember. 

In order to bring this unique experience to all three of our Sunday service attendees, we are combining the two 11:30 a.m. services in the sanctuary. Our worship team has paid careful attention to ensure that this single service at 11:30 a.m. will be something Humanist Hour and Contemporary service attendees will find meaningful and fitting.

See you Sunday,
Marlin

 



Monthly Themes

Though All Souls is active year round, from September through May, our congregation is organized around nine theological themes.

These themes provide a shared focus, giving our congregation the opportunity to gain greater clarity, meaning, and depth. Seriously engaging in these themes could transform your life!

Go deeper with our three year cycle of themes:

  1. Don’t miss your favorite service on the First Sunday of each month. A minister will introduce the theme. Additional services throughout the month may deal with different aspects of the theme as do our weekly Children's Chapel services and Children's and Youth programs.
  2. Attend our adult programming classes and events, Wednesday ConnectionsOnce a month our ministers hold a "Theme Talk" where they will offer their insights into to the theme and invite conversation.
  3. Check out All Souls exclusive blog, BeyondBelief.online. Engage in religiously liberal content curated from the heartland.
