Our goal in children’s ministry is two-fold with the first goal being effectiveness. We desire to be effective in meeting the needs of our children. Secondly, we desire to show the children an attainable God who can meet their needs and fill every void.
Our mission is to introduce children to Jesus Christ in a manner that transforms their lives by encouraging them to develop a personal relationship with Him through prayer and a solid foundation of biblical truths.
Union Baptist Church offers a Baby Dedication Ceremony to our members with children ages 0-5 years. We believe that our Baby Dedication Ceremony is a parent’s public commitment made before God, family, friends and the congregation, of their choice to raise their child in the distinct awareness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as well as dedicate themselves to being Godly parents. For more information, please call the church office.
Children’s Water Baptism
We offer water baptism to our member’s children, ages 6 through 12. Baptism is the next step in their walk of faith. Every month we teach the reasons for and the benefits of water baptism, so to inform the children of a very important step in their pursuit of Christ. Children’s Baptisms are scheduled quarterly. The procedure for baptism is full submergence in water and is performed by qualified Elders. A parental consent form must be signed and submitted to the pastor prior to the ceremony.
