One of the first steps to make UUCUC your church home is to build your church family, and our varied small groups are one way to establish those deeper, more personal connections. Some, such as our Bridge Group, are based on a common interest, and others, like the Young Adults, are based on demographics, but they are all active, friendly, and eager to welcome a new member!
