Gun Sense Ministry Team Investiture


On June 3 Unity’s Gun Sense Ministry Team had its formal investiture with the congregation. At the same time Unity Church-Unitarian was named as a member of the Interfaith Alliance for Gun Safety.   It was a meaningful event for the team as well as for the congregation.

For a list of activities that the team engaged in and supported this year see this link on Unity Church Unitarian website. http://www.unityunitarian.org/gun-sense.html
