Covenant Groups are a vital component of our Congregation - offering a path of deep connection (Intimacy) through the diversity each of us brings to Westside; as well as offering a path of Ultimacy - a search for meaning in our lives.
Covenant Groups consist of 8-10 people, sitting together twice a month to explore a topic of discussion such as "Living Simply," "Imagination," or "Poetry." We will be meeting the second and fourth weeks of the month. We have groups meeting on Monday and Wednesday mornings and Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Westside also has a humanist Covenant Group that meets monthly on the first Tuesday of each month. There is always an empty chair to invite in a new person, so for more information email Patti McCall.
Spiritual Study Group
Our spiritaul study group meets the 4th Tuesday of each month in the Social Hall. We focus on in-depth discussion, with a particular focus on the relevance to our lives. We are genuine and relaxed and often have a bit of fun. We hope you will join us and share your spiritual adventures! The group works together to select a book to read. These selections are read at home and then discussed during the meetings. Everyone is welcome - no need to sign up. For infomation about the current book contact Cynthia Townsend.
Christian Fellowship Group
Our Christian Fellowship Group meets the third Thursday Evening of each month, 7:00- 9:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room to deepen our understanding of the Christian story as seen through the lens of Unitarian Universalism. We do this through worship, Bible Study, discussion and support. The group is open to Christians and non-Christians alike. It is clear, however, that the focus of this group is on the Christian story. Facilitator: Patti McCall, WSUU Member
Buddhist Meditation Group
A weekly gathering held on Wednesdays at 7 pm in the social hall. All those who wish to participate are most welcome in this open group. Please enter the church via the social hall door to the parking lot. If you have to come in a bit late that's fine but please try to be quiet as you come in. Contact Rev. Alex Holt for questions.
Join the Men's Group 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesday nights 7 - 9 PM in the Social Hall for an evening of grounding, which starts with a short meditation. "We check in by describing our time since we last met. Then we share stories: we tell about experiences with facing success and difficulty; stories of new starts, work, travel, health-care, and creative expression. These are the beginnings of personal histories. They are the age-old tradition around the campfire." Participants are asked to attend as consistently as possible. For more information, contact Richard Clark.
The Westside Women's Group invites all women to join and learn more about each other, to share our journeys and to have fun. We meet the 2nd Thursday each month at WSUU at 7 p.m. and the 4th Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at a member's home. To join our mailing list and for more information, contact Peggy Abby.
