Welcome To Everyone
Downtown Unity Circle is a progressive spiritual community in central Austin just 1.5 miles south of the river near Travis Heights, SoCo, St. Edwards University and Riverside student appartments. Our new Celebration Center is easily accessible from Interstate 35.
Our spiritual "adventure" is to find God in everything and everyone. Your race, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, or whatever some group may have once told you made you unwanted, probably doesn't matter to us. And, you don't need a stylish suit or dress either, because dress is casual.
Lesson for This Week
and Song Writer
We want to invite you to join us at next Sunday's service for what we promise to be a thought provoking, inspiring and fun hour. Youth Education (our name for Sunday School) classes take place at the same time.
Our service starts at 10:30 AM. We are located at 2801 S IH-35. That's on the north bound frontage road between Oltorf and Woodward streets.
South bound on IH-35 take theWoodward exit and U-turn onto the north bound frontage road.
North bound on IH-35, take the Woodward - Ben White exit and continue on the frontage road to our entrance.
There is an Oltorf exit less than 100 yards before our entrance but we discourage its use because traffic crossing the frontage road can be dangerous!
East and West bound on Riverside, Oltorf, Woodward or Ben White Blvd. - take the IH-35 frontage road to our location. Parker Lane also provides easy access via Royal Hill which runs beside our building.

What's So Different About Unity?
Downtown Unity is a progressive and adventuresome spiritual community. What do we mean by "adventuresome?" We are less prescriptive than most. We try to provide you the tools to find your spiritual path; and to find God in everything and everyone.
We are members of Unity Worldwide Ministries. Unity offers practical spiritual teachings that empower people to lead healthy, abundant and meaningful lives. Many say Unity practices "practical Christianity."
Unity provides an alternative to negative religious experiences. We are inclusive and open-minded. We encourage personal initiative and growth.
We believe that prayer works! We strive to help people find a
stronger connection to God every day and we honor all paths to God.
We have inspiring ministers and are involved in social action... and social activities. We believe in making a difference in the world. And we believe in being a positive example and role model.
Our prayer chaplains are available to support you through prayer. You can email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or pray with any of our five chaplains following the service. During the week, you can contact the "Chaplain on Duty" by calling 512-373-0389.
In addition, Silent Unity is available 24/7 by calling 800-NOW-PRAY (669-7729). Anytime you feel the need for prayer for yourself or a loved one don't hesitate to call. It is a previledge to serve you and God through prayer.
We consider anyone who joins with us and wants to participate at whatever level they are comfortable a member of Downtown Unity Circle.
For those who wish to deepen their connection and commitment to this spiritual community, we encourage you to become a voting member. To facilitate this Rev. Roebuck holds new member orientation classes. If you'd like to be included in the next class, email him here or speak to him on Sunday.
The requirements for becoming a voting member are listed on the membership form that can be downloaded here. This can also be picked up at the New Member Orientation on the day of the class.
