Thursday Evening Covenant Group – Sign Up Now!
Sign-up is underway for the Thursday Evening Covenant Group, which will meet on 2nd & 4th Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. at a member home in Wedgwood, from October 22, 2019, through May 28, 2020.
Covenant groups offer the gift of deep listening and sharing around a structured topic. You’ll join a group of 8-10 participants with 1-2 trained facilitators to meet for two hours twice per month from mid-October through May. Participants are asked to make a commitment to attend for the duration of the group.
Reflections are offered to the center, and honored by the group free of cross-talk, with an open acceptance and refraining from offering advice or trying to “fix” a problem. Groups also bond and grow through the option of undertaking service projects during their year together – we encourage one for the church and one for a community organization.
Themes for each meeting’s reflective sharing, described in 1-2 pages, will be emailed for participants’ review a few days before each meeting.
This year, you can sign up directly through UUC Connect. After you’ve signed in, click on “Groups” in the right-hand menu. Choose “Find Groups” at the bottom of the drop-down menu. Covenant Groups are under “Adult Learning” – click that category, then scroll to “Covenant Group – Thursday Evening” and click the button that says “Join Covenant Group – Thursday Evening.”
Facilitators may respond right away, or may decide to hold all applications until a week or two prior to the group’s start date.
If you need help with the application process, or if you have questions about the Covenant Group program, visit the Connections Table any Sunday at Meadowbrook . You’re also welcome to call the Connections Desk at 206-454-7711 or email CovenantCentral@uuchurch.org for assistance.
