Explore ideas and delve into our beloved community in our monthly Chalice Circles.

Chalice Circles are a place to come connect with your church community in a “safe space” with deep listening, sharing feelings, perspectives, and personal connections on a variety of topics. The Chalice Circles being offered by your fellow congregants this year are: Transitions and Passages, Sacred Activism, and CommUUnity Connections. All groups will start on Zoom in October and some may transition to our church when it is safe to do so.

Transitions and Passages

With monthly ministry themes as a starting place, we will explore the transitions and passages in our lives and the ways they have expanded the depth and dimension of our lives.

Date and time: Third Thursdays, October through June, 1 – 3 PM (starts 10/21/21)
