UU ST. PETE COVENANT GROUPS meet monthly (or more often if the group prefers) to deepen acquaintance with and appreciation of one another and of life.  A covenant group consists of 7-12 people and is facilitated by a group leader.  The meetings include opportunity for a personal check-in, plus discussion of a more general question of life – and are a  great opportunity to get to know.  The gatherings are held wherever the group chooses – often at a member’s home or at the church.   Currently UUSP has seven covenant groups.  If a group grows beyond 12 people, it usually chooses to seed a new group.   INTERESTED?  Current meeting times are: 3rd Mondays (6:30-8:00pm); 3rd Mondays (7-8:30pm);

4th Tuesdays (7-8:30pm); 2nd Thursdays (4-5:30pm); 1st Saturdays (11-1:00pm for RE parents/childcare provided);

1st Sundays (7-8:30pm); and for snowbirds starting in January each Wednesday (2-3:30pm).  The 6:30pm Monday and 7pm Tuesday groups are new start-up groups and would particularly appreciate new members.  If interested, please contact Pastor Jack (jfdonovan@bellsouth.net).
