Choir

Practices every Tuesday from 7:30-9pm. All abilities welcome. Contact Choir Director Andrew Kerper: choir-director@uusterling.org.


Covenant Groups

A Covenant Group is a group of people who covenant (promise) that they will meet over the year ahead (8 – 10 monthly meetings)  and explore personal and spiritual themes drawn from either our worship themes or topics available through the UU Small Group Ministry Network. The meetings have a format guided by the group covenant and a facilitator who leads both dialogue and the deep listening. Contact Hannah Hamilton if you are interested in joining a covenant group.


Divorce and Support Group

Meets when a need is expressed. Contact John Botts, the group facilitator for more information: Johnabotts@aol.com.


Folk Rock & Rock Bands

Women’s Support Group
