Small Groups Ministry

Our Purpose

The Small Groups Ministry supports our vibrant spiritual community by providing personal opportunities for connections, friendship, spiritual growth, and fun.



Exploration of the Qualities of Advent

In this season of Advent we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the rebirth of the Christ in us. We bring darkness into light.

Our discussion groups will explore the four themes of Advent—Faith, Peace, Love, and Joy—from classic Unity writings to contemporary sources. With your group, you are invited to discover what each theme means to you and to further express these qualities.

Each participant will receive a free study guide. There is no book to purchase.

The first class is Tuesday, December 1 or Wednesday, December 2.

The Small Discussion Groups are:

Tuesday Mornings, 10–11:30 a.m.
facilitated by Donna Lee
Tuesday Evenings, 7–8:30 p.m.
facilitated by Maureen Malloy-Clifford
Wednesday Evenings, 6:30–8 p.m.
facilitated by Sam Lee

All groups meet for four weeks on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
