Unity Church-Unitarian is a vibrant intergenerational congregation grounded in the history and heritage of liberal religion. Our shared ministry enlists the whole church family in living out the values we proclaim. At home, at church, and in the world, we strive to usher in the reign of mutual respect. The mission of Unity Church is to engage people in a free and inclusive religious community that encourages lives of integrity, service and joy.

Help Grow the Circle of Peace Movement!
The Twin Cities Circle of Peace Movement (TCOPM) has amazing stories to tell about ending violence and promoting racial healing throughout the Twin Cities. This program, which took root at Unity Church under the leadership of Russel and Sarah Balenger, needs several volunteers to help tell the TCOPM story through video storytelling and compelling still images.
Returning this fall: Beloved Conversations at Unity Church
A Laboratory for Innovation in Faith Formation:
Teaching Hearts and Minds to Open for Multicultural Change
Developed by Dr. Mark Hicks of The Fahs Collaborative at Meadville Lombard Theological School, Beloved Conversations is a teaching and learning curriculum that holds both the tensions and joys of an intentional multicultural community. The curriculum assumes that every conversation with another human being is a cross-cultural conversation, even if your conversation partner is from the same cultural group. Nested inside communities of faith, Beloved Conversations creates the first step — a learning laboratory — for how to live healthily in a multiracial, multicultural, and often theologically diverse community. The curriculum is experiential and uses music, visual arts, digital media, theater, film, and the best practices of small group ministry to make its point. Save the dates!
Sing in a Unity Church Choir
Contact Ruth Palmer, Director of Music Ministries, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-228-1456 x118. First rehearsals for this church year are as follows:
Unity Singers, our auditioned 20-voice ensemble, is looking for a soprano and a tenor to join us this season. Unity Singers is based on the ensemble idea of how voices work together, this means you do not have to have what you might call a “solo voice.” It is all a matter of how your voice combines with the other voices in the ensemble. If interested, please be in touch with Ruth Palmer (email@example.com) as soon as possible to set up a time to meet. Final auditions are Tuesday evening, September 6.
