Ongoing Activities

 

Circle Dinners

Various dates and times. Meets in host’s home.

Diana Reed

CIRCLE DINNERS are potluck meals in UU members’ homes where you can get to know a small group of UU’s in a deeper way.

 

Covenant Circles-New groups start in fall.

Various dates and times. Meet in Room 113.  New groups usually begin in the Fall each year.

Celia Everist

Groups of 8-10 people meet regularly, (bi-monthly or monthly) to reflect on and discuss significant life topics.

Small groups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation and with the sacred.

Whether the topic is “good and evil,” “mindful living” or “letting go,” the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding. In each session, facilitated by a member of the congregation, all participants have opportunity to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen deeply. The time together is structured: Groups begin and end with centering readings and often include a time of silence before the sharing begins.
