Upcoming Events

 

 

 

Chalice Circle Group

We are beginning to plan our initial meetings for those who have signed up to join a Chalice Circle.
 
We have three facilitators ~ Judi Carter, Andrea Matson-DeKay and Lee Ann Hart. 
While the initial meeting will be held at the home of the facilitator, other members may be asked to host other meetings.
 
The schedule looks like this:
 
Old Town Torrance will hold an afternoon meeting on Thursday, November 15th ~ 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
 
San Pedro will hold an evening meeting on Thursday, November 15th ~ 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
 
South Torrance will hold a late afternoon meeting on Sunday, November 11th ~ 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
 
Since Community is the goal of our Circles, attendance is most important to the success of our endeavor.  The initial commitment of all participants will be to attend 3 of the first 4 meetings. You will have a good understanding of the Chalice Circle format by that time. If your  group does Not work out for you, you can withdraw at this time.  Rev. Steve will attend the 4th meeting and help set the ground rules for the remaining 6 sessions. 
 
The dates of the first 4 meetings are:
 
11/15, 12/3, 1/10, 1/24 @ 2:00 pm.
 
11/15, 12/6, 1/10, 1/24 @ 7:00 pm.
 
11/11, 12/9, 1/6, 1/27 @ 4:00 pm. 
 
Please consider these locations and dates and let us know (by return email) which group works best for you. We will let you know if your choice of group location is available. We are excited about the great response we have received from you and look forward to gathering together.
