SpiritGroups are great places to get to know other people and to get to know yourself. Over time, participants build deep connections with one another, with the congregation and with the sacred. Whatever the topic,
the conversation is respectful and caring and leads to greater understanding.
Small Group Ministry is a vital part of Unity of Columbia. Groups of 8-10 people meet weekly to reflect on and discuss significant life topics. Each series lasts 10 weeks and includes an introductory “kickoff” session, 6 weeks of video-based curriculum and discussion, a social activity and a service project. At the end of the series, all the SpiritGroups join together at Unity for a celebration and to share what they have done.
Each group is facilitated by a member of our congregation who has been trained to be a SpiritGroup Leader. The time together is structured: Groups begin with prayer, followed by a check-in question. Then there is a short (12-15 minute) video followed by discussion. The group ends with a closing prayer.
