Community First Groups

Welcome to our community. A place that is set for Connection, in a sacred time and place. 

What Are Community First Circles?

Do you ever find yourself feeling alone and needing support? Learn how to use a group, or belief in a higher power, as a secure base.

A community circle is a small intimate group of no more than 10 like-minded individuals coming together once a month in members’ homes to deepen in practice, have fun and build community. Gatherings begin with 30 minutes of socializing and sharing food, followed with 90 minutes of sacred time which includes prayer, meditation, and discussion focused on the Center’s theme of the month.

There are several ways to join a group:

1. Meet the CF Coordinator, a Leader Champion, or Group Leader on Sunday. Or, fill out the form at the New Visitor's table, and we'll contact you.

2. Fill out the response form here, and we'll contact you. 

3. Call the Center Office at 714-754-7399, or email [email protected].
