Generosity Ministry Team
Each Sunday, thirty percent of the offering goes to support of the Community Outreach Ministry at Unity Church and seventy percent is placed in the hands of the chosen community recipients.
In October 2007 the Generosity Ministry Team established relief collections when local and state emergencies occur. One hundred percent of the money collected in these emergency collections will go directly to targeted disaster relief.
The Generosity Ministry Team oversees the distribution of the Sunday plate. Members of this team are Dick Buggs, Matt Brown, Molly Gust, Laney Ohmans, Patricia Ohmans, Rebecca Flood, and Lisa Friedman. The Generosity Ministry Team members want to hear form you. Please bring any concerns/opinions you may have have to their attention. To nominate a plate recipient, please complete the nomination form available on this website. Send that completed form to any team member. To nominate a recipient for a second time, please resubmit the original nomination form.
