Covenant Groups

Covenant Groups

Covenant groups are groups of six-to-eight people who meet every two weeks to form deeper personal connections and share stories on topics of faith, core values, and universal life experiences.This form of small group ministry is an excellent way to:

- experience lived UU values and perspectives
- make a personal connection with a few members of the larger congregation
- explore your own spiritual journey in a social setting

Maybe you'd like to join one! To try one out, please contact Rev. Melissa Mummert (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Gabriele Weinberger (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
