sundays 10:30 am

We invite you to become a part of a loving, nurturing and supportive spiritual family.  As you discover the spiritual principles taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ and other Masters, you will begin your own personal transformation to living a happy, joyous and free life.

Each day we create the environment and opportunities for personal transformation through our practice of spiritual principles.  It is through this process that we will truly make a difference in our world.

Sundays in AUgust

10:30 am | in-person & online

You're invited to come explore the keys that empower you to live in the conscious flow of abundance.

This series will ground us in the spiritual foundation of true abundance.  Join us as we discover how to create a life in greater harmony of spiritual law.

Based on the abundance class by David Owen Ritz.

RECENT SUNDAY MESSAGE

The great spiritual masters of the ages have always taught that life is naturally abundant.  Lack, limitation, and poverty may be facts in our material world, and the greater truth is universal good and plenty.  To the enlightened mind, abundance is a spiritual reality that can never be altered by human circumstances.

The name of this talk is inspired by something Jesus said in Luke 12 – Your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.  Yes, we’ve been given the gift – but how many of us have the keys to this kingdom.  The kingdom is the field of infinite possibilities.

Services are uploaded here as well as to the COU App, our Facebook page and our Youtube channel so you will be able to enjoy them any time.
 

Welcome

We are happy that you’ve found us!  We have so much to offer and you’re invited to visit our Sunday services, our classes and any special events we host.  By experiencing the fullness of our spiritual community, you’ll have an opportunity to determine if we are a fit, as we are for so many.  You’ll find that we will always welcome you, free of judgment and full of love!

You’re encouraged to explore our website and if you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.

An Overview of COU

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Who We Are

COU is a community with a vision of touching others with the Christ Light and growing together on a journey of awakening.  We see ourselves as both a church and a spiritual center, and we make available a wide range of experiences for spiritual development.

Our community is varied and inclusive, and we strive to live out our vision of being Free of Judgment and Full of Love.  In addition to our regular Sunday worship service, we offer a Prayer & Meditation room, a bookstore, multiple online discussion and learning groups, spiritual programs, seminars, musical experiences, children’s programs, and much more.

Our caring board and staff, as well as numerous volunteers help propel our mission forward.

What To Expect

You will be greeted at the Welcome Desk and given a bulletin, which are also available via a QRCode.  You will then be taken on a tour of the church.  If you have children in your life, you and they will be taken to Youth Ed where you’ll be introduced to the teachers.  If children won’t be joining you, you’ll be shown key areas of the church and will be introduced to others along the way.  You’ll be asked to sit wherever you’re comfortable sitting and the Ambassador will most likely let you know where to find them during and after the service.  

A typical service will last about 60 minutes.  We sing a good mix of contemporary and traditional music that is led by our worship team.

After service, you’re invited to visit Inner Journey Bookstore to find items for your holistic and spiritual health needs or our Prayer & Meditation room where you can find a quiet space for reflection and connection.  There's also a labyrinth at the back of the property for you to walk.

That’s it!  It’s our hope that you will take advantage of all that is offered on a Sunday and at other times.  It’s the best way to get a feel for all that is offered here.

What's Different

COU is a different kind of church experience. We are a spiritual center for inspiration and transformation, teaching and living principles that are life-enhancing, affirmative, and practical. Reaching beyond that of traditional churches, our philosophy and teaching is based first upon the life and teaching of Jesus. Concurrently, we are dedicated to teaching the foundational affirmative principles of Charles Fillmore.  Further, we draw insight from a broad spectrum of New Thought and other contemporary spiritual teachers and authors. We are an exciting spiritual family that accepts everyone free of judgment and full of love.

Our 10:30 am Sunday Service has several parts.  We start with the congregation singing a couple of joy songs, followed by a welcome, meditation, and talk.  When the talk is over, a collection is taken during which we’re entertained with musical talent.  Most often, Bob Snook, our wonderful pianist, does one of the songs and a guest does the other.  This is also the time during which new guests are welcomed. Last, but by no means least, the children come in from Youth Ed and share what they’ve learned.

You will love the COU experience!

Our Mission

We inspire spiritual growth through prayer, education, and sacred service.

Our Vision

Centered in God, we envision a world free of judgment and filled with love.

Our Core Values

Unity is part of the larger New Thought movement that started in the 1800's and continues to grow today.  Without the heavy dogma, judgment and rigidity of some traditional churches, Unity is a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the power of prayer.  We honor the universal truths in all religions and respect each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.
  • Spirit-led: We are open to guidance from Spirit and seek it in all that we do.
  • Service: We lovingly serve our spiritual community and the community at large.
  • Inclusive: We embrace the unique and diverse experiences of everyone.
  • Joy: We express deep and abiding feelings of peace and delight, acknowledging the Christ in each of us.
  • Prosperous: This church receives and accepts abundance in all forms, including friendship, financial good, and prosperity.

Unity Principles

Each day we create the environment and opportunities for personal transformation through our practice of spiritual principles.
There is one presence and one power in the Universe;
God the Good, omnipotent.
The divinity is in all humankind.  
Jesus was not the exception, rather the example.
We have direct access to God through prayer and meditation.
We create our life experiences through our way of thinking, feeling and acting.
We can demonstrate now the good we desire.

How it all started...

In 1982, a group of friends sitting at a kitchen table were inspired to begin Unity Church of Northeast Tarrant County, a church where people could take a positive and practical approach to Christianity.  In 1997 we moved to our current location at 1650 Hughes Road in Grapevine, Texas.  In 2016 we changed our name to Center of Unity (COU).  In 2018, our founding minister, Reverend Carol Record retired.

We are affiliated with Unity Institute, Unity Village, the Daily Word, the International Association of Unity Churches, and Silent Unity, the worldwide prayer ministry.
We offer a Primary Program for children ages 3 to 5 years.  Class is from 8:30am - 2:30pm - 3, 4 or 5 days per week.  
Our teachers are Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) or American Montessori Society (AMS) trained as well as CPR/First Aid.
