Unity Kindness Challenge

Be part of the Unity Minneapolis Kindness Challenge!  It’s easy.  We’re asking everyone of all ages to intentionally spread kindness to those around us.  How many ways can our love ripple out to others in our family, neighborhood, or city?  We challenge you to find one or multiple things that you can do for someone else and DO IT.  

Then we want to collect and share everybody’s kindness challenge stories!  Please “tell us” about your kindness experience or “show us” with a photo(s).  We’ll share your photos and stories on social media and our website.    

  • Email your stories and photos to the church office.
  • Upload your Kindness Challenge story or photo(s) directly to our Kindness Challenge Event on Facebook.
  • Mail your stories and photos to the church office at:
    4000 Golden Valley Road
    Golden Valley, MN 55422
