Small Group Ministry
Small group gatherings offer an opportunity for members and visitors to dive deep into a wide variety of topics, from facilitated conversations following each Sunday’s service, to book discussions and classes. It’s a great way to get to know folks better, and to become more fully involved in the community.
Each gathering offers a safe space for members of the Davies family to live out our Fourth Principle, the free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Groups meet at the church unless otherwise noted, and each group is open to newcomers throughout the year. For more information, check-in with our minister or any of our greeters and ushers on Sunday morning.
A Dialogue on Race & Ethnicity (ADORE) – A program founded by UUA leader Paula Cole Jones and Davies member Dr. Chris Bell. Regular gatherings include films and readings followed by a facilitated conversation on the chosen topic. Readings are provided through the weekly E-Minder and on the event page on this site.
A Course in Miracles: The goal of the ongoing study group for A Course in Miracles is to help undo present fears and limiting self-concepts, and to experience more peace and joy. This leads, through forgiveness, to the healing of relationships. Participants are welcome at any time and for any number of sessions.
Book Group Discussion: A range of great works are discussed each Sunday morning in the hour before worship. Titles range from Johnathan Metzl’ “Dying of Whiteness” to Elaine Pagels’ The Gnostic Gospels. Check the calendar for current titles and join a small group of readers and thinkers at 9:30 am in Room 2.
Post-Service Discussion: Shortly after the conclusion of our worship service, all are welcome to gather with the minister for a conversation about the day’s sermon and service. Listen for the announcement, and feel free to bring your refreshments – and your opinions – to Room 2.
Soul Matters Drop-In Discussion: Join a discussion of our monthly Soul Matters theme, which can range from Vision to Trust to Curiosity. Meetings are monthly on 4th Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Check with Reverend Norm at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on “satellite” groups being formed.
Women’s Circle: Meets 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month from 7:30 – 9:30 pm at members’ homes. Contact: Roz Winard.
