Goals are important. They give us something to strive for, an achievement to obtain. Right now you see them all over social media. But are we aiming for the right things? What do the goals we proclaim to have say about us? What should our goals look like? In August and September we will take a look at four goals and ask the question is what I'm striving for really what God wants for me?
Every UN Service has live music and an opening game. Are U N?

Opening game - Jinx: Team up in pairs. Draw random categories then try to shout out the same word at the same time to jinx each other.

Opening game - Password: Team up in pairs. One partner will be given a "password" and then has to try to get their other partner to guess the password by providing a one word clue.
- September 25 - Life Goals. What does God want me to strive for in life?
Opening game - Battle Ship: Guess the coordinates of your opponents ship and make them do something rather disgusting!

This Sunday night at small groups you've got the opportunity to vote for a special competition your groups will be doing. Which one do you want it to be? View the descriptions below and then go to Unashamed Twitter's feed and vote on the twitter poll at the top of the feed. Let us know!
Easter Egg Taboo:
At the beginning of the party, give each person a small basket with a specific number of plastic eggs. You can use any size basket and eggs you wish, but each person will need to keep their basket with them throughout the party. Instruct everyone to pay attention to everyone else during the party. Choose an action or word that needs to be taboo. It could be crossing legs while sitting, saying the word “Easter” or something else. If someone observes another person doing the taboo action, they collect an egg from that person’s basket. At the end of the party, the person with the most eggs wins a prize.
Easter Egg Charades:
Fill plastic eggs with papers containing specific actions or activities that can be acted out. Have each person take a turn by grabbing an egg then acting out what is on the paper inside. Give each person one minute, then the person who guesses get to take the egg from the person acting out or if nobody guesses, the actor keeps their egg. At the end of the game, the person with the most eggs is the winner and gets a prize.
Easter Egg Toss:
Serve up plenty of hard boiled, decorated Easter eggs for the game and perhaps mix a few decorated raw eggs in as well for some extra fun. Pair up teens with each pair standing face to face, and have them toss eggs back and forth, trying not to drop them. Teams that drop their egg are eliminated. To add a little more difficult, each person should take one step backwards away from their partner each time they catch an egg.
If you want to add some more drama to the game, have team members toss the egg across to their partner, then pass it to the person on their left. Keep going until one team is left, then allow the two team members to toss their egg back and forth until one person misses.
Pass The Egg:
A version of pass the pan, where instead of passing a pan you pass a bowl of plastic eggs with the word or phrase inside the eggs on a piece of paper.
To prepare for the game, cut paper into small pieces and have players write down virtually anything that can be used for guessing: objects, movies, places, people, anything that comes to mind. Fold the pieces and put them in plastic eggs and then in a bowl, hat, etc.
Divide into teams of 2. Each team has 1 minute to describe as many pieces of paper from within the eggs as possible without saying the word on the paper. Once all the terms run out the round is done.
Next round, players are limited to only 3 words.
The next & final round, players are not allowed to say anything. The team with the most points after the 3 rounds wins.
Cliche is defined as a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought. The church has a lot of phrases we use. On March 13 we're going to begin a series that looks into a few of these and ask the question, overused statement or truth?
Each UN service opens with a competition, has live music, and then a message to help us understand more this faith we have in Jesus.
- March 13th: "Jesus Loves Me this I Know."
Opening competition: Ninja Piñata - Test your awareness by putting on a blind fold and seeing if you can bust open a piñata with just your senses and your feet.
- April 3rd: "Devil is a Lie!"
Opening competition: Face Shots - We've got see through beach balls and we're throwing them at your face. Yeah it sounds mean but it's going to be awesome when we add a camera and get the visual from your perspective.
- April 17TH: "God is good, all the time; all the time, God is good."
Opening competition: Lip Sync Battle - Let's see who can put on the best show!
- May 1st: "God will Never Give you More then you can Handle."
Opening competition: Drink-O - It's like plink-0 from the Price is Right but wherever your chip lands determines what you put down the ole pipe. It could be Coke. It could be Sprite. It could be pickle juice. Or it could be a combination of those and more.
We will be at the Antioch Community Center on February 28th from 6pm-8pm for an Unashamed Bonfire!

We will be having a bonfire (obviously!), roasting hot dogs and hanging out.
You can meet us there or you can ride one of the buses from the church. If going by bus be at the church by 5:30 and we will be back by 8:30.

In the Forgotten God book and DVD, Francis Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results. In our times together we will discuss how we can reverse the trend of neglect, what it means for us to pursue God and how we can allow the Holy Spirit to work within us.
Do we value the Holy Spirit in the way that we should value the Holy Spirit? Are we missing the full, all encompassing meaning of the Holy Spirit? Who even is the Holy Spirit?
We work too much under our own strength to be the kind of people who love, have joy, live in peace, express patience, are kind and good to others, faithful in our friendships, gentle in our responses, and self-controlled in our actions. The Bible actually shows us there is someone who can help us in these regards. He's the Holy Spirit and we have the ability to live under His influence.
