Chalice Circles provide an opportunity for members and friends of the church to develop deeper connections and wider service within our community through small-group conversation. Chalice Circles consist of 6-10 people who meet at least once a month for about two hours to explore meaningful topics together. Similar groups have been called Covenant Groups or simply small group ministry. This year, most Chalice Circles are meeting via your computer or phone line; however, in-person meetings may be arranged.


If you would like to inquire about joining a Chalice Circle, contact the Church Office at office@uucmp.org. If you have been curious or have questions that a fellow congregant might answer, please email Suzanne Schmidt at suzschmidt@yahoo.com; and we can arrange a phone or in-person chat.
