U2C3’s Small Group Ministry, Connection Groups, are small communities within the Unitarian Universalist faith where individuals can gather and support each other in their spiritual growth. These groups offer a safe and inclusive space for meaningful conversations, exploring beliefs, and connecting with others.

Each group, consisting of 6-12 members, meets regularly to engage in activities and discussions that deepen their spiritual connections and build relationships. Topics may focus on mindfulness, social justice, or faith exploration, or be left to develop naturally. Members lead these groups, creating a unique and meaningful experience tailored to their needs and interests.

In addition to providing spiritual growth, Connection Groups also help build a sense of community within the larger faith. Members with shared beliefs and values can strengthen bonds and create a sense of belonging.

Whether you’re a new member or have been part of the faith for a while, joining a Connection Group can deepen your spiritual journey and allow you to connect with like-minded individuals. To learn more, contact Hanna Kiely, the Administrator and Director of Religious Exploration, at administrator@uucorpus.org. Church groups and committees must fill out a form, which will be reviewed by church leadership if they wish to meet at the church.
