Yes! There is a Unitarian Universalist congregation right here in Sioux Falls! Since you searched for our church, you probably have an idea of what you are looking for, but peruse this site to get a little more familiar with what we are about, then stop in for a service! You are always welcome at All Souls!
October 19 - "Trading On Freedom" with Rev. David Kraemer. What we do in the world matters, nowhere perhaps so obviously as in our doublestandard on immigration.We create conditions at home and abroad that drive people to our
door, then we slam the door shut. As UUs, we might understand that our own liberalism has helped dig us into this hole.
October 26 - "Immigrants and Refugees in our Schools" What do refugee and immigrant youth and children find in our community? Are they welcomed? What needs do they have as they make these difficult transitions? As UU’s what are we called to do as we live out our 7 Principles? We were once all new to this country as they are. How were we welcomed?
We are pleased to announce David Kraemer of Rochester, Minn., is serving as interim minister at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Sioux Falls.
Kraemer graduated from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities with a Master of Divinity in 2013 and has worked at churches in Fargo-Moorhead, Rockford, Ill, and Rochester, Minn.
Before attending seminary, Kraemer was a journalist for 24 years at newspapers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Most recently he was editor of the Ames Tribune in Ames, Iowa.
“The All Souls congregation has a strong vision of where it wants to go,” he says, “and I’m really excited to be part of that.”
“It’s great to help keep alive the spirit of liberal religion in South Dakota and encourage it to grow,” he says.
Kraemer hopes to be ordained as a Unitarian Universalist minister later this year. He will serve at All Souls twice monthly.
