Small Group Ministry

Covenant Groups nurture individuals and strengthen connections of our members. When someone comes to a new place, it can be hard to find friends and establish connections in the larger congregation. Covenant Groups are smaller, more personal gatherings of members and friends of our Fellowship. This supportive atmosphere of helps us provide the warmth of friendship in a diverse community committed to our Unitarian Universalist principles and encouraged by our religious heritage. We engage actively in each other’s lives by celebrating life’s triumphs and supporting each other in times of challenge or need.

The questions and topics discussed at each Covenant Group meeting also provide inclusive social, spiritual, and intellectual activities for all ages, stimulating the heart and mind with uplifting experiences, challenging issues, and exciting ideas. We explore many diverse topics at our meetings such as friendship, success, forgiveness, failure, what we believe and where we are headed. Group members often choose the topics themselves. Also, each Covenant Group completes an annual service project. This demonstrates our Unitarian Universalist principles and provides a voice allowing others to learn about them, while serving the needs of the larger community.

The Ancient Shores Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans meets the third Sunday of each month at 12:15 p.m. at the Fellowship for discussion of various topics related to Earth-Centered Spirituality. Our mission is to provide opportunities for the exploration and development of Earth-Based and Pagan spirituality. We honor the gifts brought by all who participate of every age and background, placing no one path before any other.
