Small Group Ministry
Small Group Ministry is a vital part of many Unitarian Universalist congregations, including UUMH. Groups of 10-12 people meet regularly, usually monthly, to reflect on and discuss significant life topics. Meetings are held in members’ homes, usually in rotation.
Small groups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation and with the broader UU heritage.
Whether the topic is “good and evil,” “mindful living” or “letting go,” the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding. In each session, facilitated by the host or another member of the Group, all participants have opportunity to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen deeply. The time together is structured: Group meetings begin and end with centering readings and often include a time of silence before the sharing begins. Many small groups engage in annual service projects, putting their faith into action.
