Small Groups

Connection Circles

Each year we offer members the opportunity to join a Connection Circle – a small group of six to ten people who meet twice a month from October to May.  These small groups provide an opportunity for individuals to make deep and meaningful connections which sustain them and our community as a whole. Groups engage people in reflection on the monthly themes and are guided by a facilitator and organized around sharing and deep listening.

Interested in joining a Connection Circle? Contact Carol Schwyzer or Emily Maynard. Information and signups will also be available Sundays in September in the parish courtyard between services.

“For many of us, this shared practice at being together on a deeper level, knowing and being known, and developing trust, has been a true joy and a source of strength. In Connection Circles we enter a space apart from business as usual, learn a new way to be together, and find out who we are.” – Carol S.
