Small Group Ministry
Small Groups are meetings of UUCY members and friends who wish to cultivate trusted relationships with others, have a safe space to listen and share deeply, and further their own spiritual development.
There are still spots available in two of our groups – 1st Monday of the Month @ 6:30pm; and 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the Month @ 10:00am. Each group will continue meeting in the Carriage House through June.
Each meeting will include time for fellowship and bonding followed by a discussions loosely based on a topic or a theme.
We encourage everyone to get involved in these meaningful groups as a way of (re)connecting with our community and building deep and meaningful relationships.

UUA Common Read
The UU Common Read builds community in our congregations and our movement by giving diverse people a shared platform for reflection and a shared focus for action. Further, a Common Read can take us on a powerful faith journey as we explore—each of us, and together—what it means to be human and accountable in a pain-filled world.
The UUA chose Defund Dear: Safety Without Policing, Prisons, and Punishment by Zach Norris (Beacon Press, 2021) as the Common Read.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of this book and participating in a group discussion to be held in May, please Email our Director of Lifespan Faith Development.
Exploration in Mindfulness Discussion Group
Interested in exploring or deepening your spiritual practices? Come and join us on the second and fourth Sunday evenings of the month as we nourish our capacity to keep an open heart and mind, lean into discomfort, and strengthen our own flourishing in this world.
Each week will be centered on a different theme and video.
The Mindfulness Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month from 7-8pm.
UU Elevator Speech
Ever had someone ask you what Unitarian Universalism is only to be left speechless because it’s kind of hard to explain?
Or perhaps when you tell someone you are a UU, they respond, “Oh, that’s the place where you can believe anything you want, right?”
We invite you to join us for this workshop on Sunday, May 22 at 11:30am to help craft your personal elevator speech about our Unitarian Universalist faith.
It’s called an “elevator speech” because, on an elevator ride when someone asks you, “What is Unitarian Universalism?” you only have a short time to make a meaningful statement.
