Looking for a way to connect with others? One of the ways a large congregation can stay engaged and connected to the community is through smaller groups focused on a shared purpose or activity. We have groups for all kinds of interests from food to walking to needlework to laughter. Each in some way, supports our shared vision to pursue community, spirituality and/or justice. Most groups meet in-person, and some meet virtually, with new ones  forming all the time! Visit this page often to learn about newly forming groups.

Small group sign-ups typically kick off in the Fall; however, people may want to engage with the community at any time of the year, looking for ways to interface with the community. Please feel free to inquire at any time throughout the church year, and we will get you connected!

Don’t see a group that interests you? Consider creating a new group. The process is easy and a wonderful way to get to know new people in the congregation. See the link below for information.  (https://uucleveland.org/start-a-new-small-group/) (put this hyperlink behind the word “link”.)

We ask that if you are already a part of two small groups that you wait to sign up until others who may not yet be a part of groups get an opportunity to join.
