Gun Sense Ministry Team
The purpose of this ministry is to empower Unity Church and its membership to be active citizens in this process of dialogue and creation of policy.
Each ministry team at Unity Church is required to partner with an organization outside of the church. Unity's Gun Sense Ministry Team partners with Protect Minnesota, the only independent state-focused organization working for reasonable gun safety policy solutions in Minnesota. We urge all of you to look at their website and to join the organization. We think that it is positive, focused and reliable.
If you would like to learn more about the work of this team, please contact Sue Conner at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joan Duke at email@example.com.
