"Voters Registration Sunday" was an event conducted last Sunday at EMMANUEL CHRISTIAN CHURCH located in Richmond Hill, where Pastor Daniel Boyd and his lovely wife Elisha Boyd are the leaders. Unity in The Community was invited to handle the coordination of this event and help the kick off that will continue this month.  This nonpartisan event is a way people of faith can play a unique role in this election cycle by encouraging civil responsibility that will build community and offer a hope-filled vision of the future for all people. Pastor Boyd feels that the "mission of the church is spiritual or religious not political" for reasons that are both theological and legal. The Church's involvement in public life does not extend to endorsing candidates for election to public office nor calling for their defeat, yet ask people to get involved so they can vote their best interest.
