SpiritGroups at Unity of Chattanooga!
Unity of Chattanooga will be starting its next new Unity SpiritGroups in the winter of 2024. The groups are based on Unity books. Sign-ups will begin on Dec. 9th. Watch for details. Study materials and instructions are provided, but books have to be purchased separately if you choose. If you are interested in joining a SpiritGroup, please send an email to email@example.com
Unity SpiritGroups is a small group program available through Unity Worldwide Ministries. Phaedra Roberts, UWM Certified SpiritGroups Program Leader, says that these groups are made up of 2 to 12 people participating in a cohesive, strategic program that is designed to carry out the mission of our spiritual community. Groups meet once a week for 10 weeks to experience healthy, spiritually balanced small group principles called “The Five C’s”. They are:
Communion: SpiritGroup members grow through personal reflection, prayer and/or meditation time. Members begin each meeting with prayer or meditation and group members volunteer to take on the role of a prayer leader for the group.
Connection: SpiritGroup members cultivate fun and fulfilling relationships with each other. Group gatherings contribute to the development of meaningful relationships.
Compassion: All members of the group proactively seek to support and care for each other in times of joy and times of challenges.
Community: SpiritGroups enrich the community by choosing to serve together in ways that benefit the local, regional, and/or global community by participating in one community service project together.
Challenge: SpiritGroup members proactively apply what they are learning through their group gatherings. They encourage each other in their spiritual growth and provide non-judgmental support to help each other progress toward their intentions for spiritual growth.
