Family Table Meal

Family Table is a network of local churches and spiritual centers that provide free dinners for people in our community.  Unity North typically hosts the evening meal on the fourth Thursday of every month, except during November and December.  The free meal is served at 5:00pm, and all are welcome. Come for the great food and fellowship.

Teddy Bears

The Unity North community collects teddy bears that will be given as gifts to local children. The bears are filled with love during our Family Sunday Bear Blessing Service. After the service, the bears are delivered to Mary’s Place, a homeless shelter in Minneapolis, where they are given to each child entering the shelter.

For more information, please contact anyone on the Outreach Committee.

Adopt-A-Family Christmas

During the months of November and December, the Unity North community "adopts” several local families and provides them with Christmas gifts. The gifts may be for Mom, Dad, or their children, and they are given lovingly and anonymously.  This is a very popular, long-standing tradition at Unity North.

For more information, please contact Mary Sorenson or Kathleen Bailey.
