  • 2020 Vacation bible school

    Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation. This summer, kids will grab their hard hats and head out to the construction site to discover that skyscrapers aren’t the only things that need a rock solid foundation.


    During VBS, kids will discover that Jesus’ love provides a foundation that will last. When the storms of life come, they’ll need the One who will be with them to the end of the age. When anxiety sets in, they’ll need the assurance that true worth comes from being a child of God, not from what other people think about them. When they feel unworthy, they can remember that Jesus loved them enough to die for them. They’ll learn to be wise builders who continue in what they’ve learned and firmly believe. And they will discover that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion. We’re all a work in progress. Life is a hard hat zone. But just wait ‘til you see what God will do!

    The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering


    Many North American cities could reasonably be called pre-Christian. Even in the traditional “Bible Belt” Christianity is being pushed to the margins. In the midst of this, God is bringing the nations to our shores and offering unprecedented opportunities for the gospel. 


    The Church in North America is also the primary source for funding and sending missionaries, so the spiritual health of North America impacts mission work around the globe. 


    At the North American Mission Board we see a mission field that needs the hope of the gospel. With your partnership, we’re committed to taking this hope to cities, small towns and college campuses.

     

    Your prayers and gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® provide support for more than 5,000 missionaries. These men and women are planting new churches in unreached communities and meeting needs through compassion ministries. Every day, lives are being impacted and transformed. 


    The needs are great, but the living hope of Christ is greater. Thank you for reaching out with hope to your own community and for your passionate support for North American Missions.                    https://www.namb.net/


    The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

    Every Church. Every Nation.

    It's more than a catch phrase. It’s at the core of what we do. We believe every church—and every church member—has a critical role to play in bringing the gospel to the world. Your church’s participation in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is a key part of that.


    Your Gifts Transform Lives

    Because you and your church give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation.


    The Story of Lottie Moon

    In the 1800s, a missionary named Lottie Moon wrote letters from China urging American churches to fund more overseas workers. After Lottie’s death on the mission field, an offering was started in her name. The offering was established to empower international missions efforts for Southern Baptists.          https://www.imb.org/lottie-moon-christmas-offering/


  • The baptist children's homes food roundup

    Churches, businesses, and other community friends unite for the annual Food Roundup, which feeds hundreds of boys and girls living at Baptist Children's Homes. When you are feeding BCH cottages across North Carolina that can have as many as a dozen children, it takes a lot of food to fill hungry bellies.    https://www.bchfamily.org/foodroundup

  • The donna pittman christmas store

    Every year in December the Donna Pittman Christmas Store reaches out to families in our area who are in need. Boys and girls are able to receive some nice gifts while parents are treated to delicious snacks. Each family also spends some time with nice folks who minister to any needs they may have. This is a wonderful time to share the love of Jesus during the Christmas season. For more information please call the UBA office.

  • the national day of prayer

    People observe this holiday by taking the time out of the day to visit the church of their choice. Each year, almost 40,000 prayer gatherings are held all over the United States. Which means that millions of people all across the country take advantage of the day to pray. On this day, the President will often give a speech and many people will attend religious events such as choirs, concerts, and even prayer luncheons.


    The National Day of Prayer is scheduled for May 7, 2020. There's usually a gathering at the Old Union County Courthouse to observe this special day.    https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-day-of-prayer-first-thursday-in-may/

  • operation christmas child

    As a  Christian charity, Samaritan’s Purse shares the eternal hope and peace found only in Jesus with men, women, and children who are victims of war, poverty, disaster, disease, and famine.
