Deepening Connections in Small Groups
An opportunity to connect and share in a small group setting
Small Groups provide a connected reflective space in which to explore in matters great and small, applying our monthly themes to the world and to your life. Group leaders are offered training in facilitating group discussions, and a monthly packet of materials is provided to support reflection on the theme. Participants are asked to make a commitment to attendance during their group’s duration. Each group is also asked to participate in a service project to benefit the congregation or larger community. Registration begins in September. You are always welcome to sample a Small Group by attending the Thursday Evening “Open” Drop-in Group.
