Small Groups at UALC

Get Connected into a Small Group

In small groups, we learn about life and living by the example of our Christian friends, and grow in faith by walking alongside someone who needs support and encouragement. A small group is a Disciple-Making tool that offers a social outlet, an emotional connection, and spiritual support. We can expect to grow spiritually, and form bonds with others who love Jesus, too. We call it Discipleship. Contact Jennifer Jerrome, for more information.

What's coming up? 

new! Support Group for Caregivers
Are you a caregiver? Would it help to have others to talk to and to pray with once or twice a month? We know that care-giving is lonely stuff and we all need the support and encouragement from others who have been there. Let us know if you are interested in hearing more. Let's not keep doing life alone. Contact Jennifer Jerrome, for more information. We will start up as soon as there are a couple people who are interested.

Connect and Grow Groups and Resources

New small groups are geared to our busy lifestyles, offered in sessions, as short-term commitments. Connect and Grow Groups differ from on-going small groups in that they are offered as topic-specific opportunities to connect. They run short-term. It's a trouble-free way to join a small group, and one to which you can feel comfortable inviting your neighbor or friend.  We also offer resources for you to do within a small group:
