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, young and older people in your group. Please contact Lisa Arcoleo with your questions, and/or to join a circle. ALL are welcome!

Please note that many of our Covenant Circles are meeting virtually via Zoom during our time of social distancing. Please contact Lisa to join in.

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 this year include: Expectation, Belonging, Attention, Awe, Integrity, Resilience, Wisdom, Liberation, Thresholds, Play.

Each Covenant Circle will:

  • Meet together once a month from September to July (wrap up). 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. Virginia 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.
