Small Group Meetings for Friendship and Spiritual Growth
Our Small Group Meetings will be starting again in September. Small Groups are an opportunity for friendship and spiritual growth. Groups of usually no more than 10 people get together to listen to each other’s ideas and share. Each meeting has a specific topic and is led by a trained facilitator. The groups give us a chance to get to know each other in a more unhurried way than coffee hour or a quick conversation before church. The groups have relational agreements to create an environment conducive to community building and spiritual exploration. Those who participated last year say they thoroughly enjoyed their time together and treasure the insights gained and stories shared.
We will be meeting September through May.
If you have questions or wish to sign up you can contact Ellen Allman 802-463-5129 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There are two ongoing groups which meet once a month on Thursdays. There is also a drop-in group facilitated by Rev. M’ellen usually once a month on one of the Sundays when she is in Springfield. Come try out a group on Sunday, September 20 from noon to 1:15, after the coffee hour. The theme of the group this time will be Connecting with Nature and it will be facilitated by Rev. M’ellen. If there is more interest, we’ll be starting additional groups. And Rev. M’ellen will offer a training at an area UU congregation most likely in October for those who would like to learn more or possibly become a facilitator.
