Grow your connections to our beloved community at UUCMC!

Covenant Circles are groups of 8-10 people who meet once a month for 10 months. You can expect a diverse group of newcomers and longer time members and friends, younger and older people in your group. Please contact Lisa Arcoleo with your questions. Please note you do not have to be a member of our congregation to participate in a Covenant Circle. ALL are welcome!

As we anticipate possibly moving back into in-person gatherings, we envision our Covenant Circles as offering a Zoom option in addition to any in-person small group meetings. We anticipate Covenant Circles to be our primary vehicle for processing all we ALL are going through. We hope you will sign up today.

I’M Ready to sign up!

The purpose of a covenant circle is to create an intimate space for each participant to deepen their connections with each other and minister to one another. We do this by exploring together matters of ultimate worth via unifying monthly themes.

Monthly themes for the next congregational year beginning September 2021 include: Embracing Possibility, Cultivating Relationship, Holding History, Opening to Joy, Living with Intention, Widening the Circle, Renewing Faith, Awakening, Nurturing Beauty, Celebrating Blessings.

Each Covenant Circle will:

  • Meet together, currently via Zoom, once a month beginning in September. Please do your best to attend regularly.
  • Do a service project of their choice together, either inside or outside of UUCMC.
  • Use a prepared session plan designed to explore your thoughts and feelings about our monthly themes.
  • A facilitator will lead the group experience and receive training and support from Rev. Craig and the Covenant Circle organizers.
  • Members commit to keep confidentiality, to listen deeply to one another and to participate to the best of their ability.
