Make Sure You Are Registered to Vote

An important election is taking place on November 6th, and as believers, our responsibility is to weigh each candidate for local, state, and national office on the basis of biblical principles, and then vote for the candidate that will most closely represent those principles in office. The first step in doing that is to register to vote! You can register to vote in Champaign County until October 9th.

Investigate the candidates on your own (don’t depend on the news media) and then VOTE! Polls will be open on Tuesday, November 6th from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. To find out where you are to vote and other information, you can visit:

Youth Group Switching to New Night in September

Date: Sunday Nights
Time: 6-8pm
Location: Unity Youth Center

Thursday Night Unite Youth Group is switching to a new night. Starting this Sunday, September 9th, we will be having Unite Youth Group on Sunday night from 6-8pm. In order to better meet the needs of our church, teens and their families; we have switched to a new night which tends to be more free and open for our church family. Our goal is to find the best way to minister to our teens and their families, and hopefully this new night will meet that goal by allowing more teens to attend youth group who may normally be tied up during the week with extra-curricular activities.

So, long story short, nothing has changed at UNITE Youth Group except for an awesome new day and time for us to have our youth group. We’ll still do the same crazy games each night and have the same challenging talks from Pastor Dan, but they will be on Sunday Night instead of Thursday Night. We hope that this change won’t turn your life upside down, but that it will help you and your family be more involved in UNITE Youth Group instead!

If you have any questions regarding this change, please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Dan. Remember to join us for our first youth group on Sunday Night, September 9th at 6pm at the Youth Center! We’d love to have you and your friends there!

Missions Breakfast to Kick Off Missions Emphasis Sunday

Date: Sunday, September 16, 2012
Time: 8:30 am
Location: Unity Baptist Church

On September 16th, we are going to have our Missions Emphasis Sunday. This year we are going to have 2 missionaries with us: Jonathan Robertson (Costa Rica), and Nathan Montgomery (Salt and Light). We’re going to kick off our Missions Emphasis with a breakfast on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. We will not have our regular Sunday School classes on this day, and no Jr. Church. Everyone will meet at the assembly room of the Carpenter’s Union building next door. We’ll eat breakfast together, and hear the report from Nathan Montgomery on Salt and Light. Then we’ll move to our building to have our services.

We would love for you to join us for this special breakfast, but we need you to sign up if you’re going to join us. This will help us know how much food we need to prepare. Please contact the church to sign up! We hope that you’ll plan on joining us for this special day, and also be praying about what the Lord would have you give for missions through your Faith Promise.
