UUCV Small Group Ministry Program

Our UUCV Small Group Ministry provides a safe space for personal and spiritual growth, fellowship, and enhanced relationships. Meeting once a month in members’ homes and at the church, our small groups are let by trained facilitators who encourage deep listening and the sharing of beliefs and feelings about chosen topics.  We believe that thinking, feeling and speaking about our experiences are essential elements for spiritual growth.


Our small groups are open to members and friends of UUCV. If you are not currently a member of our small group ministry program and are interested in more information about the program or would like to join a group, please contact Dot Everhart [email protected] or Reverend Meg at [email protected]
