Welcome to a positive, practical Christian path
“Unity is a non-denominational church and, as its name implies, welcomes and cherishes all people. “Ours is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer. Unity teaches that each person is a unique expression of God created with sacred worth. Our mission is to empower ourselves and others to grow spiritually by teaching and living Unity principles of practical Christianity.
“If this is your first visit here, you may want to read What Is Unity? and Unity’s 5 Basic Principles to learn more. We’ve also put together FAQ for Visitors for you. “Many people comment on the wonderful energy and peace they feel when they come onto our property. We would love to see you Sunday and share that energy and peace with you!” –Rev. Pam Reynolds, Ret., former minister,
Transition: Sunday, October 29, 2017, was Rev. Pam’s last day, here at Unity Way Church, as she retired. It was with great sadness that we saw her leaving. She was a beacon of “Principle! Principle! Principle!” since coming here 13 years ago! We sent her off with much love and gratitude!
Rev. Michael Schoonover, who was, heretofore, our Associate Minister, has been hired to take over the duties of Minister. Unity Way Church supported Rev. Michael all the way through his Unity schooling process, so this is a natural transition. He has been a wonderfully supportive part of the congregation and the ministry. It is with the same love that we welcome him as our new Minister.
Rev. Michael carries on in the tradition of “Principle! Principle! Principle!” Highly educated in not only metaphysical biblical interpretation, but also in Bible history, Rev. Michael brings a tremendous Spiritual understanding to the platform! He is well versed in the teachings of Unity co-founders, the Fillmores, and other early Unity authors. We look forward to a long and fruitful ministry! Principle! Principle! Principle!
Christmas Eve Service: Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, this year, there will be only one service – at 10:00 in the morning. In this way, families can be together at home in the evening. Thereafter, Unity Way Church is moving to one service only, again at 10:00 a.m. This will give friends who were formerly attending different services the opportunity to reconnect.
Today’s Lesson: “A Living Hope” A living Hope is something that we ARE; it is part of our Spiritual heritage, urging us to ever higher understanding and expression of the Truth of our being.
Thanksgiving Communion: Our Thanksgiving service was culminated with Communion. We realize that some attach a deep spiritual significance to the physical Elements, pictured, here. Others, who preferred, were invited to remain in their seats in silent meditation. Either way, it is the personal communion with God, Spirit Indwelling, that is the purpose of this remembrance
Youth Education: Pursuant to Janet Robinson’s retirement as Director of Youth Education, the department is trimming back to two Sundays a month – the second and the fourth. Children will be warmly welcomed at regular services on the remaining Sundays. The position, recently vacated by Janet, is open to those qualified. Please contact the church office by phone (760-726-1224) Wednesdays through Fridays, between the hours of 10a.m. and 4p.m., or by email (email@example.com), if you are interested. A background check is done on all applicants. Managerial skills and experience in teaching are preferred.
Upcoming Special Events: November 19th, join us for our Annual Thanksgiving Potluck Feast following the 2nd service. December 16, Women of Unity will host their Annual Christmas Party and White Elephant gift exchange. See our events page for more information.
Unity Defined by Charles Fillmore
Unity Co-Founder Charles Fillmore said: “Unity is a link in the great educational movement inaugurated by Jesus Christ; our objective is to discern the truth in Christianity and prove it. The truth that we teach is not new; neither do we claim special revelations or discovery of new religious principles. Our purpose is to help and teach mankind to use and prove the eternal Truth taught by the Master.”
