Unity Church in the Woods is a not-for-profit interfaith organization committed to empowering people by helping them develop to their full potential. We seek to create community by honoring diversity and by providing an environment where friendships can be formed and people can discover the good in others as well as themselves.
Unity is an extremely positive approach to life, seeking to accept the good in people and all of life. God is seen as having many attributes, but most important is that God is LOVE. Unity stresses that God is not a physical man in the sky, for this limits Him. God is Spirit, everywhere present, the one and only Spirit behind, in and through all things, visible and invisible.
Unity seeks to relate religion to daily needs, affirming that for every need there is God's perfect answer. Its main textbook is the Bible as it relates its lessons to your life and everyday experiences.
Unity Church in the Woods began over 2 decades ago when a committed group of Unity families had the foresight to know that a new church was needed to meet the needs families with children in our growing community.
The stewardship mission of Unity Church in the Woods, ChurchSHARE, also expanded as we began to share our 10-acre campus with other local religious and educational organizations.
ChurchSHARE, an outreach of ministry of Unity Church in the Woods, was created to meet the needs of local churches who needed a worship facility to grow their ministry. ChurchSHARE is particularly proud of partnering also with Oasis Middle School, a Manatee County public charter school focusing love and personalized academic support to some very special children.
