“We Have Come This Far by Faith” – Union Branch is known as a “City of Hope” as countless strangers have entered and remained as family because of the genuine love and support they experience. Union Branch was organized in 1890 and continues to thrive because of the grace of God. Currently we are being led by our 14th pastor. During our storied history, God has called approximately 21 men and women to minister the Gospel as well as establish countless ministries to serve all members. By God’s grace this community of faith has been used as an agent of change as many lives have been transformed through this church’s ministry.

REGISTER FOR VBS 2019
The Christian Education Ministry is excited to announce that we have begun preparations for our upcoming 2019 Vacation Bible School here at UBBC. Our theme this year is Whoosh! Take Flight to Where God Leads You!
We will be singing songs, playing games, and creating crafts. Although those things are fun, the most important thing that we will be doing is creating an intentional time and space for children and adults of all ages to hear the gospel, learn Scripture, and tell their friends about Jesus.
In order to have a successful Vacation Bible School this year, we need you! Yes You! And you and you and you! We are currently seeking teachers for Pre K – through 12th grades. We are also seeking members help in the areas of Security, First-Aid, Crafts, Registration Staff and other areas. Please reach out to one of the coordinators if you are interested in helping make VBS 2019 a success.
The coordinators are Yolanda Hawes, Artrice Harris, and Paula Burroughs.
