ROOTS & WINGS

The path to relationship and connection at UUCWC includes two group conversations with our minister, Rev. Kim Wildszewski.   Typically offered every other month, these gatherings are held on Sundays, from 12:30 – 2:30 pm.  A light vegetarian lunch is provided. Childcare is available if requested.

The next Roots & Wings are:
Roots:       July 9
Wings:      September 17

ROOTS
The first gathering, Roots, is a sweeping overview of our Unitarian Universalist history. It is a conversation about both our roots and our evolving theology.  Roots is a great place to ask your big and small questions about our faith tradition and our community at UUCWC.

WINGS

The second gathering is Wings. During this conversation, we tell of our personal spiritual roots – what did we learn about religion, what was our religious or secular upbringing, etc.  We also consider our Wings – what are our thoughts, practices, and areas of inspiration now or would like to discover more about.  Wings a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and the other newcomers to this community.

We also speak about the expectations and benefits of membership within UUCWC. Although it’s not assumed that you will sign the membership book, at the conclusion of Wings, you are invited to do so.

In order to attend Wings, one must first attend the Roots gathering.  Wings is usually offered on alternating months following Roots. A light lunch and childcare, if requested, is provided.

No fee is required for these two gatherings but registering is necessary. If you’d like attend Roots or Wings, please contact Rev. Kim at minster@uucwc.org.

Chalice Circles
The Chalice Circles at UUCWC are on-going programs, with new series beginning in September, December, March and June. Designed to accommodate newcomers and longtime members alike, the Chalice Circle program provides a place for participants to connect with others in our faith community and to grow their faith in a safe, nurturing environment.

The heart of the circle is the opportunity for sharing and deep listening. Based on Parker Palmer’s “circles of trust” model, each participant is given time to speak without interruption while others listen without judgment. Meeting topics are based upon our congregation’s monthly themes.

Each Chalice Circle series is limited to six twice-monthly meetings. There is always an empty chair to symbolize the group’s willingness to welcome newcomers to the circle. It’s never too late to join a Chalice Circle.

For more information, see the Chalice Circles webpage under Adult Programs at www.uucwc.org.

Note: A 30-minute orientation to the circle is required prior to joining.

2nd and 4th Thursday MORNINGS: 6 Sessions: June 08 and 22, July 06 and 20, August 10 and 24; 10 AM to 12 noon

2nd and 4th Thursday EVENINGS: 6 Sessions: June 08 and 22, July 06 and 20, August 10 and 24; 7 PM to 9 PM
