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. The Small Groups Committee invites you to participate in one of the many available groups. Each in some way, supports our shared vision to pursue community, spirituality and/or justice. The most current information about our offerings will be updated on our website on the Small Groups page. Contact us at smallgroups@uucleveland.org if you have questions!

Some groups maybe on “hold” during this time of social distancing, and some are meeting via “Zoom” or in another modified meeting format. By signing up, you will be kept apprised of any updates regarding the meeting times, locations, etc. for the group(s) you are interested in.

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 you are interested in, but you have a passion for an activity, area of study or focus? Contact us, and we can assist you with starting a new small group!
