Are you searching
for a way to feel
more connected to
others within the church? A wonderful way to connect and gain a better understanding of your own views at the same time is through our covenant groups.
These are small groups that meet monthly to discuss a specific topic. Topics are different every month and give each person a chance to discuss their own thoughts and hear others’ ideas.
Groups follow a standard format beginning with a check-in to see how members are doing. Then there’s a short reading followed by quotes related to the topic. After that, each member can share thoughts without being interrupted. Finally, everyone is invited to discuss thoughts or ideas that come up while listening to one another.
Groups meet at various times during the month, making it easy to find one to fit your schedule.
Spend some time with your UU friends during the week! The Midweek Lunch Bunch meets twice a month and has an average of eight or more participants each time. We usually eat every other week, alternating between the east, west, and downtown areas of town. Watch the UUpdate, the Unison, the church calender, and the Happenings to find out where the bunch will meet. Newcomers are especially welcome it's a great way to get to know your new community.
And in the meantime, join the Sunday Lunch Bunch after the service and discussion.
This group meets the third Friday at 10:00 a.m. They enjoy fellowship and make scarves for the homeless and shawls for the elderly.
This is a long-running group in our church which now meets the second Wednesday of each month after the Wonderful Wednesday supper to discuss issues related to humanism, science, politics, and other "secular" subjects. For more about the humanist group, click here.
Working with a committee is another good way to meet people and make friends. We greatly appreciate our volunteers. One of the best committee for newcomers is the Hospitality Committee, which plans and recruits helpers for our church-wide social events. The Community Connections Council could use your help sending out cards, providing transportation, and helping to organize memorial service receptions. Building and Grounds is your committee if you like to plant flowers or do interior decoration. Join Lifespan Faith Development if you are interested in education for children, youth, or adults. Most of the committees could use your help and would welcome you enthusiastically.

We have a small-group ministry here in the church, the most important of which is the Covenant Group program. All of these groups offer members and volunteers an opportunity to get better acquainted with each other and with the church. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to get connected to the congregation at this level.
