CHALICE CIRCLES

Ready to create a community within the church? Chalice Circles are a form of Small Group Ministry. Groups of 6 to 8 people meet regularly — in our case, twice a month — to reflect, share deeply, and listen without judgment about concerns of the heart and mind. Chalice Circles are a different form of sharing, unlike a discussion or therapy group, but a chance to listen and share from the heart.


Chalice Circles are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself better. Over time, participants develop deep connections with one another, the congregation, and their spirituality. Each gathering is structured and facilitated by a member of the congregation who is trained in facilitation. Participants are encouraged to share their stories and learn how to listen deeply to others without judgment.
