Dear UUCM Community:
You have probably heard that our church is currently engaged in Soul Matters, a year-long, theme-based spirituality program. A central element of the Soul Matters program is small groups of eight people who gather once a month to engage in a spiritual activity and thoughtful discussion. The groups are a great way to connect with others and share more deeply from the heart. Our hope is that most of the adults involved in our church will participate in a Soul Matters group starting this fall.
Now is the time to sign-up for a Soul Matters small group. You can sign up by sending an email to Lourie August at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can sign up in Benker Hall at church. Groups will begin meeting at the end of October but please sign up within the next two weeks so that you can receive the October Packet with suggested home activities in advance of your group meeting.
Here are the six groups that are currently being offered. They will be held in the last week of the month.
- Last Monday 7 to 9 @ home of Michael Glenn
- Last Wednesday 7:15 pm to 9:15 pm @ church with Carolyn Cronin
- Last Sunday 12:30 to 2:30 @ church with Ann Heintz
- Last Sunday mid-afternoon @ home of Susan Jhirad
- Last Tuesday 7:15 to 9:15 @ church with Lourie August
If you are interested in participating but one of these times or places does not work for you, let me know and we will try to make adjustments to accommodate everyone. Also, there is one additional group that Rev. Marta Valentin will be leading for people newer to our community.
You can learn more about the Soul Matters small groups next Sunday since Rev. Marta will be speaking about the program during morning worship. You can also check out the website www.soulmatterssharingcircle.com for additional information.
I look forward to hearing about your interest in being part of a Soul Matters small group!
