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 or the ministers at minister@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.

Currently, there are openings in one ongoing group:
– Carol G’s Thursday Chalice Circle that meets on the first Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, in person in the Fireplace Room. Contact Carol Greenstreet at csgreenstreet@yahoo.com.

New Chalice Circles can be started whenever there is enough interest. If you are thinking about joining one, let us hear from you!
