Please plan to join us at the July 29 – 31, 2022 Universalist Convocation that will be held at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church, 25 Church Street, Bellville, OH 44813


Honoring Our Past, Shaping The Future

From circuit riders to Zoom and from analog to digital, we look back at the history of the people of Universalism and celebrate the ever changing peoples who make up our faith. At this watershed moment, let us explore what we can do today and how we can set the stage for the future.

Celebrate with All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church of Bellville as they commemorate the bicentennial of their congregation.
