How do I get involved in groups and events?
There are many options for groups.
Our Leaderhip Directory is intended to provide you with an overview of the lay leadership of First Universalist and the committees and other groupings of volunteers that work within the church. It includes a listing of the Board of Trustees and our two congregationally elected committees. All other committees, task forces, teams, etc. are open and welcome new members. We invite you to serve on one or more of these and/or take your ideas and concerns about the church to the appropriate group so that the church can more effectively serve members, friends, and the larger community.
There are different kinds of groups: broadly Social or Common Interest Groups, Caring Circles and Small Group Ministry. Caring Circles are a network of members that could be called upon to minister to the needs of other members in the congregation and they stengthen the community and the ties that bind us. Small Group ministry is about your growth and development. Types of Small Groups include Chalice Circles (groups that meet up to twice a month with a curriculum to structure conversation) and Spirit Groups (to explore spiritual practices).
If you would like to get involved with events, or the information above is overwhelming, please contact Pam Leder, our Connections Coordinator, and she will assist you in finding the group for you.
