Small Groups at United Church
Besides the major fellowship events, a number of small groups regularly meet at United Church for fellowship, spiritual growth, and education. Schedules for meetings may vary from time to time. If you are new the church and are interested in one of these groups, please contact the church office at email@example.com for group leadership contact information.

United Greens "Earth Ministry" Group
(2nd Monday of the month, 7 pm - Church Library)
This group will be a home for concerned church members and friends seeking information, dialogue and support for taking action on Care of Creation. As the church continues its classes and activities in scripture study, energy-saving, and political advocacy, this group will meet regularly to assess planned activities and world developments, let scripture speak, alert us all, and initiate new approaches. We will also use a simple internet group to keep in touch easily.
