The stress, uncertainty and anxiety of these times presents its challenges to us individually, as families, as a congregation and as a global community. One of the many ways that you can choose to take care of yourself during these times is to join a Covenant Group at UCH. Covenant Groups are groups of 6-8 adults who make a 9-month commitment to meet monthly for a 2-hour session, led by co-facilitators.
Covenant Groups provide:
- A place to belong
- A place for spiritual exploration where each person’s journey is honored
- A sacred space where the stories of our lives are heard
- A safe place, strengthening the fabric of our beloved community
- A place to listen better and care more
Due to the pandemic restrictions, some Covenant Groups meetings may be on Zoom for the 2021-2022 year while other meetings may be in person. For many, this may be an easier way to join without concern for transportation issues or driving in bad weather. For some, the technology may be a challenge, but we can help with simple instructions and encouragement. Anyone with a computer, iPad or smartphone can join from the comfort of their home.
Covenant Groups for the year are meeting now. Please contact Bridgette Parker if you have any questions.
