Circles of Joy – Our Easter/Lenten Circle Groups


Do you want to resurrect the joy in your life, and also get to know some other congregants a little better? Our “Circles of Joy” are the perfect way to achieve the joy and connection you crave and, at the same time, deepen your spiritual practice.

The “Circles of Joy” — small groups of six to eight people — will meet once a week during Lent, which runs Wednesday, March 2, through April 17 (Easter Sunday). These Circle Groups will meet primarily via ZOOM, although a few LIVE sessions are available for those who want them.

CLICK HERE to sign up for the group that best fits your schedule.

The groups will be using Unity Village’s  booklet, “Release and Renew 2022: A Spiritual Practice for Lent.” To download a PDF of the booklet, click on this link: 2022 Release and Renew. Hard copies of the booklet are also available in our on-campus Divine Idea Books & Gifts store for $2 each.

Lent is often thought of as a time to give up something … and what this beautiful “Circle” experience will help you “give up” are the fears, negativity and doubt that have been blocking your awareness of all the good that is in and all around you.

Each week, a facilitator will lead the group in prayer and discussion related to the book, which offers daily affirmations, scriptures, and essays for the 40 days and seven Sundays of Lent. With specific ways to release unhelpful thoughts, this circle group experience will inspire in you a more peaceful and open heart as you overcome what does not serve you, and connect with God, others and your true self.

As a “Circle” participant, you’ll be reminded this Lenten season that you hold the power to overcome any obstacle!!!

Your facilitator will email you 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.
