Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Union Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Union Baptist  members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as mowing the grass, to traveling overseas to share the love of Jesus with unknown people groups.

 

Mission Outreach

We are thrilled to be a small part of the spreading the good news around the world. We are active in sending missionaries from our own family and supporting them with our money and with our prayers. Each year we support missions in a variety of ways, from giving to going, and we encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

 

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play instruments, some are vocalists, while others are involved in the production aspect of worship.  These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Union Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. We have multiple areas to be involved in from soloist, to the Celebration Team, from monologues to road side dramas of the crucifixion, there is something for everyone.

 

Deacons

The Deacon team at Union Baptist Church is a selected group of men that fills an important role. They are involved in serving the needs of UBC members as well as those guests that join us. From ensuring the safety of the building during services, answering questions, providing directions, and generally ensuring that our services can proceed problem-free. These servants also make hospital and home visits, deliver meals to the elderly,and sick, and lead out in showing Gods grace. The Deacon team are men with a true servants heart and their ministry is integral to UBC life.

 

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Union Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats.

 

Prayer Teams

Prayer cannot be overestimated as prayer glorifies God. Scriptures says ..ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9-10 (NKJV). Union Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. One of the new concepts coming in 2013 is for each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers will be praying for the ministry of the Word. Then throughout the week, volunteers on our Prayer Warriors team pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Then on each Wednesday, we as the church will come together for a time of rejoicing and reporting on all God has done.

 

Children’s Ministries

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Union Baptist holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
