At Beacon, we do life together. It’s what a covenantal religion is all about.
Explorer Circles offer newcomers and new members a chance to become more rooted in their relationship at Beacon AND determine their beliefs and values. It is for those who are new to religion, curious about God & spirituality, or coming back to community after some time away. Yes, it’s for new people — but longtime members are also welcome.
Explorers offers you a a 7-week, small group conversation environment with 8-10 participants per group. It’s a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off-limits. It is also facilitated by Beacon members, and the Circles are offered every Fall, Spring and Summer. Explorers ends with participants writing their credo (belief) statement and sharing it with the class. You can register here.
