Community Groups

Unitarian Universalists honor the inherent worth and dignity in every person. We hope that you will find a place among one or more of our community groups, filled with people of like-mind or similar life experience, with whom you can really “be yourself.” If you can’t find a group for you, we invite you to start your own. Contact the Church Office if you are interested.

If you don’t see a Community Group that meets your needs, we encourage you to start one!

UUCA requires that each group have at least three church members who agree to take responsibility for the group, keeping the building safe, and communicating with staff. In order to find those people, you are permitted to hold up to three “interest sessions” before becoming a group. Contact Susan Eckert to set up interest sessions.

After your three interest sessions, you can apply to become a group of the church. Complete the Application to Become a Group, and return it to the Church Office. The staff will review your request, and approve it or request more information from you.
