Groups

10+hands+circle

All adults in the congregation can sign up to participate in the groups listed below.  In these small groups, members and friends with similar interests and concerns can share common experiences, dreams and obstacles.

Each group has a volunteer convener who organizes meetings and outings, with the assistance of others in the group. The link for each group takes you to a sign-up sheet where you can add your contact information to the existing list of participants. The convener will make sure you receive notices of upcoming events for the group.
