Affinity Groups


At United Parish, we believe that small groups provide comfortable environments where we get together to explore faith and life.

20/30 Vision

20/30 Vision is a group for adults in their twenties and thirties who come together to deepen their faith through Bible study, community service and social justice activities, and fellowship and fun.  Read more >

Centering Prayer

Centering prayer is a form of meditation in the Christian tradition using the breath and a sacred word to help center ourselves in God's Presence. It is a spiritual practice that we learn about and practice together.  Contact: Alisa Joyce, Associate Pastor.
