A Course in Miracles Study Groups
Held on Zoom and/or in person

Perhaps you have already tried reading A Course in Miracles and found it difficult to make it through the text and 365 daily lessons? The Course is challenging, and it is a powerful tool for spiritual growth. And, the metaphysics of the Course are highly compatible with Unity teachings. While the Course is designed for individual study it is helpful to have a “support group” to share your questions, discoveries, and to journey with. Bring your book, or you can view the text for free on a smartphone or tablet.

A Course in Miracles Study Group #1 –  This group, originally begun in the home of our former Pastor Rev. Jim Fuller currently meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00 pm on Zoom.
Email roger@unityalbany.org for info and link.

A Course in Miracles Study Group #2 with John – Our congregant, Rev. John Frederick, is currently leading a weekly, informal group on Zoom from his residence in Paris, France on the teachings of A Course in Miracles. Wednesdays, 12:00 Noon, New York time (6:00 pm Paris Time).
Email John for more info and link: janthony10@yahoo.com

A Course in Miracles Study Group #3 –  For many years an ACIM group met at the church on Sunday evenings. Beginning in April, 2022, we are reviving that group with meetings occurring on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 5:45 pm, facilitated by John Kane and Peggy Kaufmann. It will meet in person (Garden Room) and on Zoom.

You can find information about A Course in Miracles study groups across the United States, and beyond, at www.miraclecenter.org.

Information about A Course of Love may be found at acourseoflove.org

These groups are always open to new students as well as those who have already been working with these teachings.


Social Justice Circle

This group, which restarted in March, 2022, meets on the second Sunday of the month following the 10:00 am service (11:30-ish), in person (Garden Room) or on Zoom, to find ways to be a force for positive change in our community.

When the Justice Circle gathers, we might be about these things:

  • Find out what we are doing already individually.
  • Do we want a deeper understanding/more skills about topics of interest.
  • Might we start listening to the local community to uncover needs and roadblocks AND bring back issues to explore or tackle.
  • Create a Vision Statement from this, that is mutually agreeable

Fall and/or Spring Retreats

We usually schedule an overnight retreat each autumn, at either the Dominican Retreat House in Niskayuna or the Carondelet Hospitality Center in Latham, NY . They run from Friday evening through Saturday evening dinner. We invite a guest retreat master to lead us each year in a relaxed time of reflection, sharing and community.

At times a Spring retreat may also be held, usually on a Saturday at the church.

    • Aaron,

      We don’t currently have a Quest group scheduled, unfortunately. It tends to happen every couple of years, and it’s been a couple, actually.
      Thanks for your interest. I will mention it to others in case someone feels inspired to start it up.
      Meanwhile, there are some other classes and groups just getting going for the fall. Check our Events page and see if anything appeals to you.
      All the best!
      Roger
