Children's & Nursery Ministries: Our children's and nursery ministries are inviting and welcoming places to learn about Jesus Christ. These ministries focus on teaching each child that they are special, God loves them and that Jesus Christ died for their sins. Some of our children's ministries include a nursery for each service, a variety of classes for all ages and children's church during our Sunday morning service.
Youth Ministry: Our youth meet for Sunday School each week, as well as every Sunday and Wednesday night. Our goal is to engage the youth in our church and local community so that each youth has a sense of real meaning and inspiration in their life that comes from developing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. We have accepted the challenge to equip tomorrow's leaders with the tools they will need to face the experiences that lay ahead on their walk with Christ.
WOM (Women On a Mission): Our WOM ministry strives to spiritually and emotionally strengthen women in the Lord through prayer support, missions and social events that encourage the building of friendships within our church and community as wall as around the globe.
Van Ministry: Our van ministry helps provide a means of transportation to and from all our services to many in the communities immediately surrounding our church. Please contact the church office (352-472-3845) for information regarding pickup locations, times and processes. Please note: because of Florida State Law, children must be at least 6 years of age to be a rider on our van ministry.
Deacon Ministry: Union Baptist Church has an active and engaging Deacon ministry. Each Deacon is responsible for support of the churches families through encouragement, prayer and support. Deacon's actively reach out to our members and provide a "Deacon of the Week" to assist families and members in need.
Operation Christmas Child (OCC): Union Baptist Church is an active participant in OCC a Samaritan's Purse ministry. Church members have the opportunity to participate in the worldwide mission field by collecting items for packing shoe box gifts that are distributed to children around the globe. Since 1993 OCC has provided more than 100 million shoe box gifts of God's love to boys and girls in over 130 countries. We partner with OCC and many other local churches to pack the gifts that share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ both in our local community as well as throughout the world.
Brotherhood: Union Baptist Church's men's ministry helps grow men into leaders of their family and community, as well as servants of the body of Christ. The Brotherhood reaches out to our community with great care and conviction. Brotherhood suppers and events are held throughout the year to encourage fellowship, prayer and to offer support.
Prayer Chain: We believe in the power of prayer at Union Baptist Church. Our prayer chain is just one of the ways in which we spread the needs of our church family and community to those lifting up concerns to our Lord Jesus Christ in prayer. If you would like to add a prayer request to our prayer chain or become a member of the prayer chain (in which case you will be notified when a prayer request is submitted so that you can begin praying for the person, situation and/or concern) please contact the church office.
