A warm and wonderful thank-you to the 20 plus souls who attended September 30th's workshop with Rev. Phil. Our Mission and Vision statements were discussed, dissected, and tweaked with great gusto! The final vision statement is on the last page of this newsletter. Keep an eye out for the final mission statement!
While in transition mode we also look forward to welcoming new members and participants. Rev. Jim's three week, 9 AM class continues 11/5 and 11/12. Do join us for the coming November dates. Unity Principles and learning with zeal!
A Minister Search committee has been formed and has begun their work. There will be regular updates and announcements in the weekly emails and in this newsletter. Their work is being guided by publications from the Unity Worldwide office.
We are considering an interim Minister to serve our community while the search for a permanent minister is underway. An exploratory meeting time is scheduled for Sunday, November 5th, following service. Please join us and Rev. Sher as we converse and share ideas.
Christmas Angel Tree
Mid-November to December 3
Each year Unity in the Heart works with Sponsor A Family, a coalition of nonprofits across the metro area that anonymously provides gifts and holiday meals to individuals and families at Christmas. Our Christmas tree will go up in mid-November, decorated with gift requests for the particular family we will serve. You will have about two weeks to purchase a gift. The deadline for getting the unwrapped gifts back to our Christmas tree is December 3. Then volunteers will take the gifts to Sponsor A Family. Thanks again to the volunteers for organizing this outreach – the Kuyper family, Dawn Metcalf, Larry Hampel and Mary Kopet.

Should our regular Sunday morning service be cancelled for weather emergencies, an email blast by 8 am on Sunday morning will announce it, so make sure you’re on the email list! We are also developing a special front page to the website that will clearly indicate if services have been cancelled due to snow. That should roll out before the end of November. Finally, we will post the notice on our phone: call 651-399-3679.
Be aware of St. Paul snow emergency rules. In a nutshell, parking is prohibited on the east side of Howell (the side closest to the Temple building) until plowing has been completed on Howell. Read the signs carefully!
