Small Groups & Community Groups

Did you know we have 20+ small groups that meet at First UU Richmond?

What these groups have in common is their commitment to First UU Richmond and our Mission to Grow, Care, Act. In addition to meeting regularly, each group is asked to do one activity a year to serve our church community and one activity to serve our larger community.

Some of these groups have service at their center and some are relational. All of them contribute to our individual and collective spiritual/religious growth and health.

A number of our small groups are closed except for yearly sign-ups – contact Rev. Sue Sinnamon for more details. When sign-ups are scheduled, that will be posted here.
