Small Group Ministry

28 June 2018

Curious about Small Group Ministry?

Missing your church friends?

Hungry to get to know more people?


Join together July 29, 2018 at 11:30 am in Eliot Hall for a one-time pop-up style Small Group Ministry discussion & pot luck lunch.  

We will explore this delicious response from theologian Dr. James Luther Adams when asked why people come to our religious communities at all.  Dr. Adams replied, “People come to churches searching for intimacy and ultimacy.  They come into our communities for a place to belong (intimacy) and a place to seek meaning (ultimacy) about living and dying and the spaces in between.”

This opportunity to connect at a deeper level than the usual coffee hour chit-chat is for the young (over 10), our beloved elders, friends, new members, old stalwarts - seekers looking to deepen their personal experience of our UU faith while held by Beloved Community. 

This topic was developed in response to a call for networking sessions to be shared at General Assembly 2018.  We will be in the good company of thousands of UU’s exploring the GA theme of “All Are Called”.  The proposal for this session reads:  How can we faithfully meet the demands of our time?  The call to witness and act for justice in our society and in the world is clear.  So, too, is the call to examine our structures and practices, dismantling and transforming those which fail to recognize the full humanity of all people and to honor the interdependent web of life.  Together we dive deeply into questions of mission for our Unitarian Universalist Association, for our congregations and for each of us as individuals.  

Bring your open minds and hearts and a pot luck dish to share.  Contact Christine Ashworth to RSVP for childcare (under 10) and/or if you have questions.
