MINISTRIES & BOARDS
The Unity Baptist church Benevolent fund was established by the church to meet the financial needs of the impoverished, needy, and poor. There are guidelines for the Benevolent Ministry to govern how the fund should be administered.
The Bereavement Ministry is an outreach ministry to support members of our church who are mourning the transition of a loved one. The ministry provides personal contact during their time of grieving. Our goal is to be the compassionate heart and hands of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ providing comfort by the aid of Holy Spirit.
BOARD OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Christian Education is the communication of the Gospel through formal and informal education programs so the facts of the Scriptures are presented clearly, and individuals may respond by personal faith in Jesus Christ and grow toward Christian maturity. Unity Baptist Church Board of Christian Education is a body of church members elected or appointed to coordinate and guide the educational program of the Church through inspiration, instruction, and interaction. Each ministry has a leader and ministry members that report to the BOCE meetings held once a month from September to May. The ministries fall under the guidance of the Pastor and the Board of Christian Education is purposed in teaching the word of God. The budget for the BOCE is provided through the church.
