October is Pledge Drive month!
October marks the beginning of Unity’s annual pledge drive when we ask each other to declare that we hold the church in trust through our financial support.
This year’s canvass theme is “Trust the River.” Like the river, we are always in transition, always moving from the past to the present to the future. We must trust that even when we’re not sure where we’ll end up, the river’s currents will take us where we need to be.
To make an annual pledge, please complete the form found on this page.
If you have not made a pledge before, have questions, or would like to discuss your pledge, contact Barbara Hubbard at email@example.com or 651-228-1456 x116.
In honor of Celebration Sunday, October 17, the day we celebrate the generous financial gifts of the congregation, food ministry volunteers will host a Stone Soup lunch at 12:30 p.m. in the greenspace.
What is stone soup? Stone Soup is a community-sourced meal. It originates from a folk story in which hungry travelers convinced the people of a town to each share a small amount of their food to make a meal that everyone could enjoy. You can see a family-friendly retelling of the story here:
How to participate? Please bring an edible item to be incorporated into our soup. Donations will be accepted at the kitchen window on Sunday morning from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Once received, volunteers will wash, chop and add your single item into the community-sourced soup.
Wondering what to donate?
A tomato or vegetable from your garden, a large sweet potato from the store, a cup of rice.
Please stick to vegetables and gluten-free grains. We will have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. No need to donate meat; our volunteer team is graciously donating a handful of chickens!
Make your annual pledges today and then join us for Stone Soup on October 17!
