Circles of Joy

Our annual “Circles of Joy” are small groups of congregants who gather weekly during the Lenten season leading up to Easter to focus on spiritual practices that can enhance the joy in our lives. Scroll down the page to see what groups are available and sign up for one!

This year the Circle Groups will meet via ZOOM. (One group will use GoogleMeet so that it can be closed captioned to accommodate the hearing impaired.) The groups will meet weekly six times, beginning Feb. 17 (the start of Lent) and ending on Easter (April 4).

The groups will be using Unity Village's Lenten booklet, "Release and Renew: A Spiritual Practice for Lent." CLICK HERE to download a free copy of the booklet or request that a hard copy of the booklet be sent to you.

Each week, a facilitator will lead the group in prayer, discussion relating to the Lenten booklet and sharing at the heart level with those in attendance. As a participant, you'll discover the power and impact of transforming negative thoughts into nourishing thoughts of positivity, and your group will explore together what we can do to experience greater joy in our lives.

Your facilitator will email you the before the CIRCLE GROUPS begin to provide you with information about the group (including the Zoom number and password you will need to enter the virtual Zoom meeting space). If you have signed up for a Zoom group, be sure to download the Zoom app on your smartphone OR go to to sign up and download Zoom on your computer (it’s free). Note that your computer will need both a camera and mic for you to be seen and heard during the Circle group meeting.

If the time slot you wish to join is full, please email Nancy Caddell to be put on a waiting list.
