Time: 5:30 pm

During Halloween on Wednesday, October 31, the parking lot of Unity Baptist Church will be turned into a great place for the family to come and Trick or Treat. Instead of knocking on door, your family will be able to visit a parking lot full of vehicles that have had their trunks decorated and filled with candy. Families in our church will decorate their car’s trunk with imagination and creativity to make a welcome and fun-filled place for you and your kids to enjoy as you collect candy. As you visit, you’ll even be able to vote for the Best Decorated Trunk with the rest of the community! Each year we have hundreds of people in the community visit our church for this night, and we would love to have you join us! The parking lot will be open from 5:30-8:00pm on October 31. We hope to see you there!

If you are a part of our church, we would encourage you to join in and help make a difference in our community.

8 Believers Baptized at Evening Fellowship

We had a wonderful time at our picnic and baptismal service on Sunday, July 8th. After a bit of uncertainty because of the weather, we were able to meet, and over 80 people gathered for food and fellowship. The highlight of the evening was our baptismal service, when we were privileged to see 8 people follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.

Praise the Lord for those that joined with us by baptism this past Sunday Evening: Reagan Barnhart, Alyvia Bernard, Michael Cler, Devin Jones, Hannah Jones, Cori Cunningham, Kim Medrano, and Vera Walsh. Please join us in rejoicing with these believers as they have been obedient to the Lord through baptism!

Baby Dedication Day

Date: Sunday, April 15, 2012
Time: 10:15 am
Location: Unity Baptist Church

This special Sunday is an opportunity for all new parents or parents of children that have not yet been dedicated to the Lord publicly, to say, before the church body, that they will raise their children in a way that honors and glorifies the Lord and “train them up in the way they should go” (Proverbs 22:6). This is also a wonderful opportunity for our church family to commit to pray for these parents as they raise their children in a God honoring way. If you would like to be a part of this ceremony by dedicating a child, please see Pastor Brady.
