Adult Faith 

Development

At First Universalist, we affirm a free and responsible search for truth and meaning from birth to death.  We care about your unique spiritual journey. That's why we have programs that take you beyond Sunday, encouraging you to go deeper - both intellectually, and spiritually. 

Grief Support Group starting January 14th

A semi-structured support group for congregation members who are experiencing grief, following the loss of beloved family members. Chalice lighting, opening words, paper-and-pencil exercises, and closing words will lend to the sacred space and intimacy of conversations.

 

In order to do this work in covenant and build relationships, the group will be limited to 12 members who are asked to commit to attending all sessions. Facilitated by Theo Munson, Rev. Lane Campbell & Rev. Michelle Yates virtually via Zoom.

 

The group will meet for 8 weeks on Thursday mornings from 10 am to 11:30am beginning January 14, 2021.

To sign up, please email Rev. Michelle at edu@uuroc.org.
