What are spiritGroups?
SpiritGroups are a gathering of about 4-10 people that will meet once a week for 7-weeks to consciously deepen your awareness of your own courage and strength, while creating friendships and bonds that can last a lifetime. There will be groups throughout South Florida meeting on different days. The program is a unique combination of Sunday messages, meditations, and in-home book study groups focused on themes drawn from a particular book. The SpiritGroups program happens 3 times every year, Winter, Spring and Fall. The book every time will change but groups at their core will always focus on 5 Disciplines; communion, connection, compassion, community and challenge (read more about this below).
what is the Winter SpiritGroups Book?
We are excited to explore the pages of a transformative book that anyone alive can relate to. “Finding Yourself In Transition” by Robert Brummet is for every person because anyone with a pulse will go through transitions in their life but we can go through these transitions with ease and grace as long as we have understanding of the stages of every transition.
How do SpiritGroups Work?
The SpiritGroup Program has 3 main phases. We are currently in PHASE 2.
PHASE 1 | January 27 - February 10: Host Recruitment and Training
PHASE 2 | February 17 - March 3: Individuals Find Their Preferred Group

What is a Host?
A host is someone willing to host a group, whether in their home or another location they coordinate. As a host, you will receive a 2-hour training session at Unity on the Bay to feel comfortable and be prepared to support your group.
SpiritGroups focus on the Five Disciplines
Communion - focuses on spiritual practices which heighten your awareness of your sacred calling and your personal relationship with a higher power.
Connection - involves connecting with others who are on a similar path and developing friendships with people who uplift and support you as you learn and grown together.
Compassion - empowers you to bless others in their times of need. It challenges you to be a light in the world and to purposefully seek ways to share your spiritual gifts with the people in your life.
Community - demonstrates your understanding of spiritual principles at work in the world beyond the walls of your spiritual home, and to express your beliefs through service, even when confronted with opposing viewpoints, allowing you to expand what you know to be true and dares you to live with spiritual authenticity.
Challenge - reveals your willingness to stretch and grow through ongoing study and contemplation while consistently and proactively expanding our understanding of spiritual principles.
Our culture offers little help in coping with and overcoming the enormous personal, social and economic changes that are occurring around us and within our lives. Finding Yourself in Transition explores the spiritual opportunities inherent in life's changes and helps us discover how to use them as a gateway to greater personal and spiritual growth.
