Opportunities to Connect at Unity Church of the Hills

Connection IconBeyond the Sunday Messages and uplifting music, building connections is a cornerstone of Unity Church of the Hills. As spiritual beings, centered in oneness, we are wired for connection. And fostering meaningful connections support us on our spiritual walk.

Connection is so important that we have made it one of four areas in our My Passport Home program, a program unique to Unity Church of the Hills. The My Passport Home program provides a fun structure for focusing intentionally on your spiritual growth. Learn more here.

There are many opportunities to connect at UCOH, from our Spirit Group Ministry to Men’s Fellowship, from Entrepreneurs to Young at Heart. Take a look. Get involved. Have fun.

Spirit Groups

Spirit Groups Logo

Spirit Groups are small, facilitator-led groups that meet on a regular basis for meaningful dialogue and mutual support. They provide an opportunity for deep connection, support in applying Spiritual Principles and a way for you to contribute to the lives of others through sacred sharing.

Spirit Groups can exist around a particular demographic (i.e., young adults, singles, retired congregants, LGBTQ, men only, women only, co-ed, couples, etc.), or be open to all congregants. You can even search for groups by zip code to find the groups near you!

It is our intention that, as our Small Group Ministry grows, there will always be a group available for you to join. Get started today! All of our Spirit Groups can be found in our InFellowship portal.

  1. At the top of the page, click here to jump into “InFellowship”.
  2. Once there, click on ‘Find a Group’ at the very top of the page just above our logo. You do not need to sign in to find a group.
  3. Search for a group that fits your interest and schedule.
  4. Once you find the group, complete and submit the Interested in the Group? form and you will be contacted by the Host.
  5. Don’t see a group that’s right for you? Consider starting one!

Penny, Lead Prayer Chaplain and minister-candidate, has studied this healing modality for several years.

Light snacks are made available as early as 4:30 p.m., and activities can be planned for any care-receiving adults accompanying their caregivers; please RSVP by November 9 by calling Anneliese Rosea at 512-335-4449 x 113.
