A Chalice Circle is: Chalice Circles are small groups of 6-10 individuals, including a facilitator, that meet twice monthly to deepen relationships with each other and to grow spiritually. Chalice Circles provide an open and supportive environment that promotes making connections and developing friendships within our congregation. Facilitators are trained to provide a comfortable, confidential, and judgment-free environment in which participants may share personal experiences around a pre-determined topic. At each gathering, members briefly share with each other what is going on in their lives, and then discuss a topic of spiritual or personal importance chosen for that evening.
A Chalice Circle is not: Chalice Circles are not therapy or support groups. A Chalice Circle is also not a book or political discussion group. You will be encouraged to share personal experiences with each other, rather than opinions and advice.
Why join a Chalice Circle? Chalice Circles can provide all members with a depth of connection that is difficult to reach during coffee hour or at larger church events. Joining a Circle is a good way for newer members to develop relationships that strengthen ties to the Sunnyhill community.

Quaker Worship Group
Diane Rusch, contact
Some of these joint UU/Quaker meetings for worship remain completely silent. On occasion a member or members may feel led to speak out of this silence. The Quakers have faith in the “inner light,” suggesting that there is a spark of the divine in everyone, which explains this shared sense of ministry.
Weekdays, days, times, locations vary. Watch for details in the weekly e-blast, The Beat!
