Fellowship groups provide many ways for people to come together to form a “community of communities” here at Unity Church. These small (and at times large!) groups provide a means to socialize, learn, and explore.
Involvement nurtures community. We are always searching for ways to bring people together in ways that feel right to each individual. If you do not see a way that feels right for you, talk to Lisa Friedman by phone at 651-228-1456 x107 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and create something new!
A New Look at the Bible
This Bible study group uses group and personal exercises creatively to demonstrate that the Bible speaks to religious liberals. Different versions of a biblical text are read and compared; both positive and negative responses are encouraged. Anything goes in this class, where the Bible is not an irrefutable document, but a rich, sometimes puzzling, sometimes transforming resource for understanding and coping with life. A New Look at the Bible meets on the second Thursday of the month (June 9 and July 14) at 7:00 p.m. Contact: Paul Gade at 651-771-7528 for meeting locations during summer construction.
Afterthoughts seeks to expand and deepen the experience of the worship service through conversation that uses the Sunday sermon as the starting point. This group meets each Sunday after the 10:00 a.m. summer service.. Contact: Paul Gade at 651-771-7528 for more information.
An informal support group for caregivers. The Caregivers group meets on the third Thursday (June 16, will not meet in July) of the month from noon–2:00 p.m. Contact: Janne Eller-Isaacs at email@example.com
