Circles are groups of 8-10 committed participants who come together with a trained leader to nurture spiritual growth in community. These groups are grounded in the spiritual practices of deep listening and open-hearted reflection. Each gathering offers an opportunity for deeper connection: connecting with our own inner truth, connecting with other people, and connecting with something greater than ourselves.
Which circle might be right for you?
Community Circles offer an opportunity to reflect more deeply on our Sunday services and monthly worship themes.
Spiritual Deepening Circles gather for in-depth study of a particular topic or spiritual practice, such as Conscious Aging, Listening to the Soul Through Poetry and Examining Whiteness.
Newcomer Circles offer an opportunity to learn more about our liberal faith tradition and connect with others who are getting to know First Universalist.
