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,
Rev. Michael Schoonover 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, Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, and other early Unity teachers and authors. His warm, welcoming presence gives all a feeling of belonging. We look forward to a long and fruitful ministry! Principle! Principle! Principle! It works when you work it!
This Week’s Lesson: “Gratitude Power” Yes! Gratitude is a POWER! It acts as a magnet, bringing ever higher good, desired–even unforeseen–blessings! It changes us inside and it changes our world around us–always for the better!! The old saying, “Try it! You’ll like it!” definitely applies, here! This week, we are invited to do just that! Start with those things most obvious and soon you will become aware of beauties and blessings around you everywhere!! It all starts with gratitude!
Youth Education: We offer Childcare/Youth Education 4 Sundays a month – FIVE, when there are five Sundays in any given month! Children will be warmly welcomed at classes which will teach them Truth principles in ways that they can understand at their respective age levels.
Per State mandate, Unity Way Church has been on hiatus, as far as Sanctuary services. We look forward to rejoining each other when the mandate is lifted. Until then, we know and affirm that, in Spirit, there is no separation! We are ONE in LOVE, ONE in CHRIST!!

LETTER FROM OUR MINISTER – 03/28/2020
After deep and prayerful consideration, Mickie, our board president and I have agreed that it would be prudent to temporarily suspend all Unity Way Church Sunday Services, activities and classes, during this current Corona virus situation.
Our plan for the next couple of weeks is:
- To fulfill the requested manner of maintaining social separation, the weekly Sunday service will be videotaped, dependent on our acquisition of proper equipment. At any rate the Sunday lesson will still be on our website, here.
- The church office will remain open Wednesdays through Fridays, possibly with reduced hours, which will be posted on our website, if they are put in place. Until then they are 10am – 4pm.
- We will update the website and our FB page with all new info as the situation requires. Please check for updates.
- We are encouraged to remember and LIVE the Unity principles of Spiritual Truth, acknowledging God as the ONE power and ONE presence, in the face of all worldly appearances of lack, limitation or other imperfections.
- I will be available to answer any/all questions. Phone or email me: 760-726-1224 or email@example.com
- I am knowing that our congregation will realize that, even though we will not be holding regular church activities, our overhead expenses and obligations continue. Donations can be made on our church website at https://unityway.com, or sent via US Mail to 171 Unity Way, Vista CA 92083.
I am holding in consciousness the Christ Nature in each and every one of us, and in all humanity. Knowing that in the Healing Christ Mind it is now so!
Rev. Michael A. Schonover

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.”
