We have a strong and thriving small-group ministry at UUCS. All groups offer Members, Friends, and Newcomers an opportunity to get better acquainted with each other and the church. We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to get connected to the congregation at this level. Check the Unison, the website, and the church web calendar for latest details.

Covenant Groups

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. The topics follow monthly themes that also occur in worship.
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. Check out the Covenant Groups page under Learning.

Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch meet every Sunday and enthusiastically welcome Newcomers. It’s a great way to get to know your community. Check out the Lunch Bunch page and the Calendar for more information about this popular activity.
