Whether you are seeking spiritual development, tools to face life’s challenges, alternative ways of being present, intellectual stimulation, or an in-depth exploration of our faith history or values, our fellowship is open to offering opportunities to advance your journey.
Chalice Circles are groups of 8 to 10 people who meet once a month September through June under the guidance of 1-2 trained facilitators. They are a great way to further spiritual growth as well as to connect with others at a very deep level in a supportive and nurturing space.
The program is based on the same monthly themes used for Sunday services and the Children’s Religious Exploration program. Each month, participants receive a packet that includes spiritual practices, questions to ponder and optional resources such as readings, podcasts and short videos. Each participant chooses one theme-related spiritual exercise and near the end of the month meets with their circle to listen to the experiences of other members and share their own. All circles run under a covenant that includes confidentiality and uninterrupted listening.
Currently, there are 3 Chalice Circle groups: 2 in-person groups, one meeting in the daytime and the other in the evening. There is also an inter-fellowship circle that meets via Zoom.
In the Unitarian Universalist tradition the Sunday speaker does not have the last word! Time is allotted during the Fellowship Time of our service for discussion and questions. In addition, those wishing to have a more in-depth conversation on the topic are invited to get together in our library following the service.
