What to Expect

 
congregationWe love to have new people visit Unity of Wimberley, and you'll love what you discover! If you haven't been to this spiritual center before -- or if it's been a long time -- here's what you need to know:

The only difficult thing about visiting Unity of Wimberley is finding it the first time! Do NOT use GPS or Internet maps – you might be misdirected. Click here for detailed directions. We’re about three miles east of Wimberley Square. Take FM 3237 to Red Hawk Road, then it's 0.7 mile to the top of the hill.

 

What will you find?

The official front door is on the west side of the building. Just inside is a visitors' table where you will be given a name tag and information about Unity, as well as a warm welcome from our greeters. Feel free to ask questions! They can also direct you to the children's classrooms.

The front door has a few stairs, but the kitchen door on the south end is accessible.

Next is what we call the Fireside Room with its enormous stone fireplace. This is where we have coffee and chat before and after the service. 

If you have children with you, our Sunday School meets during the 11 o’clock service, with groups for nursery through high school. The kids join us in the sanctuary for a blessing and song at the end of the service.

The service lasts about an hour. Afterwards, we have potlucks on the first Sunday of each month and occasional congregational meetings called Help Unity Grow (HUG).

 

Our minister is Rev. Ellen Debenport, who has been in Unity more than 20 years and came to this church from Dallas in 2009. She speaks most Sundays, although sometimes you’ll find a guest speaker. You may listen to previous Sunday talks.

The music is terrific! Our music minister is singer-songwriter Kit Holmes, whose talent is celebrated throughout the New Thought movement. Her music adds meaning to the Sunday experience.

 

After you have been attending for a while, you might want to become an official member of the church. This requires a four-week class with Rev. Ellen, which is held a couple of times a year. Watch the announcements for the next membership class when you’re ready to join.

Also listen to the announcements to hear about classes being offered – everything from prosperity to grief recovery – and volunteer opportunities, which are the best way to get to know other people. You can keep up with everything by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.

 

In case you're wondering . . . 

Yes, we happily include a variety of people in our congregation. Diversity of color, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation and socioeconomic standing make our community more interesting. Whoever you are, and wherever you are on your spiritual path, you will be welcomed into the full life of the community. Questions? Email Rev. Ellen Debenport.

 

Enjoy yourself!

What makes Unity of Wimberley special is not just its warm, welcoming atmosphere. We also have beautiful property! Take some time to find a rocking chair on the back porch and just relax while you look at the hills. Also check out the selection of spiritual and metaphysical books in our bookstore, including books for children.

Noticed the swimming pool? We offer pool memberships each summer to individuals and families.
