Covenant Groups groups usually consist of 6-12 people who agree to meet monthly, often in a group member’s home. Rev. Jason provides a discussion guide each month that gives structure to the sharing that occurs; the guide is connected with the monthly worship theme. This allows participants to go more deeply into each monthly theme.
Reflection and dialog are important parts of small-group ministry… but maybe even more important is listening. Paying attention to one another – really hearing one another in an affirming way – is a core practice.
If this sounds interesting to you… you are invited to contact Denise Benoit, Director of Congregational Life at UUSGS. Denise coordinates the Connections program and has up-to-date information on openings, meeting dates and locations. We’ve also begun a drop-in small group for those unable to make a regular commitment… on the third Sunday of each month at 11:30AM.
Thanks for your interest… and as we like to say in Bread for the Spirit: always be in service of the dialog!
