Channing UU Church offers many groups of interest. The main objective of each group is to strengthen the congregation by drawing us into mutual ministry with an emphasis on caring for each other in an open, supportive and nurturing environment. Church groups meet once, or more, a month.
Each Group has a common theme. There is a leader, and possibly a co-leader for each group. Church groups are always open. You do not have to be a Channing member or attendee to be a member of one of these small groups. You are welcome to attend any group without feeling obligated to attend Channing.
Spiral Circle CUUPS
The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (or CUUPs) is an independent affiliate of the Unitarian Universalist Association. Spiral Circle CUUPs is sponsored by Channing UU Church in Edmond, OK. It is a welcoming place for those people who identify with the Pagan path and want to explore, participate and educate themselves.
Spiral Circle CUUPs is a family based group of eclectic pagans who recognize all Pagan traditions. We gather to celebrate the major Sabbats (pagan holidays) eight times a year and see this as a time for fellowship, learning, and connecting ourselves with the turning of the Wheel.
Our rituals include both the God and Goddess as we recognize the natural balance in life. Men, women, and children (above the age of 10) are welcome.
Please check the church calendar on this site for our next Sabbat or CUUPs gathering.
Channing Book Group
The Channing Book Group usually meets the fourth Tuesday of each month September through May at 2:00 p.m. at the home of a member. Topics include movies, books, and poetry. Occasionally a movie related to a book is viewed. Past discussions have included the book and/or movie versions of To Kill a Mockingbird and The Shipping News, The group members select the discussion topic, based on reader recommendations.
The group may meet on an irregular basis in the summer for museum trips, movies, etc.
The Channing Book Group maintains the Church Library as its service to the church.
The Channing Stitchers
The Channing Stitchers is a covenant group that meets to work on individual sewing projects, such as quilting, knitting, or embroidery.
It’s a time for building friendships and encouraging personal growth as the stitchers share the joys and concerns of their daily lives.
The Stitchers meet the second Saturday of each month at 2 PM at the home of a member. Our service to the community is providing children’s clothing to the Hope Center.
The Channing Choir
The Channing Choir harmonizes every Thursday evening at the church from 7:30-8:30 p.m. We practice upcoming hymns so we can help lead the congregation, and we also prepare pieces from Bach to Brubeck which we perform periodically.
