Missions “Big Give” 2021
 
At Unity, missions is our heartbeat all year. We exist to love God, love others, and take His message of hope and life to the world. Each year, during the Christmas season, we have our annual “Big Give” to missions which allows us to help spread the Gospel to our community, our state, our country, and the rest of the world!
 
This year’s in-person “Big Give” will take place on December 12th during our 10AM worship service, but you can also give online any time. 
 
We encourage you to pray as a family about what you will give to help fulfill the great commission!
 
Please write “Missions” in the memo of any checks given towards the Big Give, and if you give online be sure to select “Missions” in the “Fund” drop down menu. 
 
 
As you consider your gift towards missions, check out this playlist of videos from the International Mission Board and see the ministry that your gift will be helping to fund.

Church Plant Partnership – Resonate Church
Unity has the awesome opportunity to partner with a church plant through the SBCV in Midlothian, Virginia.  The Youth Praise Team serves Resonate once a month by leading their worship and 2 members teach their Children’s Church once a month, giving the Resonate members an opportunity to stay in worship.  The church is in the Skipwith area of Midlothain/Powhatan, led by Senior Pastor Mike Cauthorne – looking to reach the growing area around them.
