What are Covenant Groups & Chalice Circles?


Ongoing small groups of 8 to 10 people who typically gather for spiritual exploration, reflection, mutual support, and service. Some members choose to move on at the end of the program year in spring, allowing spaces for new members to join that group in the fall.

Group members select a topic for each meeting. Each group develops a covenant about how they will relate to one another and function as a group. Groups are led by trained facilitators who are ERUUF members.

Covenant Groups:

  • meet 2 times per month
  • complete 2 service projects per year

 Chalice Circles:

  • meet 1 time per month
  • complete 1 service project
