An important part of the UU Fellowship is helping each other grow, learn, and share our spiritual journeys. Below is information on our current Small Group Ministries. If you have been thinking about joining one of the small groups, now is a good time to do so. There are several offerings to choose from, meeting different needs. Each provides an opportunity to deepen connections among the members of this wonderful fellowship.
* Chalice Circle Discussion Group: 2nd Thursday of each month at 1:30pm
This group chooses a topic to consider together. Some of the things considered thus far include our own spiritual biography, people who inspire us, living with fear, what we believe, and coping with change.
*Chalice Circle Book Group: 3rd Wednesday of each month at 10am
The list for the Chalice Circle Book Group is available here. It includes monthly selections through at least December 2016. All are welcome at the meetings. You are encouraged to read along, even if you cannot make the meetings.
*Caregiver’s group: 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 10AM.
This group is for those among us who support family members or friends who need regular care. We listen, encourage, brainstorm, and support each other in this journey. Contact Chris May if you would like to join us.

April’s book will be The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate—Discoveries from a Secret World by Peter Wohllehen
Drawing on groundbreaking new discoveries, Wohlleben presents the science behind the secret and previously unknown life of trees and their communication abilities; he describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in the forest around him. As he says, a happy forest is a healthy forest, and he believes that eco-friendly practices not only are economically sustainable but also benefit the health of our planet and the mental and physical health of all who live on Earth.
