Covenant Groups deepen and expand the ministry of the congregation, help build community, and provide opportunities for deeper relationships, spiritual exploration, and search for meaning. This year over two dozen people are participating. Each group will meet monthly for personal sharing of our stories and our thoughts about this year’s topics.
As a congregation, we are doing something new this year. We are engaging in a year long exploration of and dialog about diversity. Many of our church programs and activities will be organizing around this theme to provide multiple ways for each of us to engage with the topic and find ways to participate. (see our “Exploring Diversity: On the Path to Understanding” web page for more information)
Covenant groups are one way in which we can listen to each other and share our experiences in a small group intentional and supportive setting.
This year our topics include the themes proposed by the transition teams as well as some of the favorites from past years. Here is the schedule for the coming year:
- October: Listening
- November: Ability *
- December: Age *
- January: Race, Power, and Privilege *
- February: Money *
- March: Compassion
- April: Gender *
- May: Reflections On Diversity *
- June: Gratitude
