About Unity Church of Christianity
The basic tenets of Unity philosophy are:
- God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.
- I am naturally good because God’s Divinity is in me and in everyone.
- I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.
- Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.
- I do and give my best by living the Truth that I know. I make a difference!
We welcome parent’s involvement in the Youth Education Program. You are encouraged to observe a class and feel free to speak to one of the teachers or Rev. Harris for further information.
Unity Church of Christianity began in the summer of 1979 when a group of four people visited Unity Village in Lee’s Summit, MO. to discuss the possibility of establishing a Unity church in Tulsa. Later that summer, the first service was held at Byrd Junior High School with 19 persons in attendance. A core group guided the organization until it hired its first minister, Gary Simmons in the summer of 1980.
The church office, study center and bookstore were in a building at 4313 E. 31st street until the congregation purchased its present home, a former Church of the Nazarene (built in 1968) at 35th and Jamestown. We moved into our new home in the late summer of 1981, holding our first Sunday service in the new building on Aug. 2, 1981.
Over the many years, programs in music, youth and adult education, self-development and body renewal classes have been part of our story. We are also known in Tulsa for the many and varied speakers that appeared in the area. We have sponsored festivals in art and music, as well as being active in various community issues and projects over the years.
We have been served by a number of wonderful Unity ministers over the years who have brought to us their diverse interests and experience. Currently, our ministry is being served by Rev. Mary Anne Harris. She is a Bible historian and scholar, her expertise is the study of the early Christian church. See upcoming events for her current teaching schedule.
