Sunday School:

Unity Baptist Church’s Sunday School classes begin every Sunday morning at 9:45 AM. We offer classes for preschoolers, children, youth, and adults to help you grow in your knowledge of God’s word, Christ’s redeeming love, and God’s plan for your life.
For new parents, we offer nursery care during the Sunday School and morning worship times so that you can comfortably participate in our classes and services. Our loving and caring volunteers will care for your children, allowing you to be able to enjoy the church services by knowing that your children are save and secure with our nursery staff.
Please come and join us each Sunday morning to study God’s word.

Instrumental Ensemble – Gives opportunity for those proficient in playing instruments an avenue for using their talents for the Lord. The piano, organ and keyboard instruments are a few of the primary instruments played at Unity Baptist Church. Guitars and wind instruments such as the trumpet, trombone and flute have been added. Instrumental players are encouraged to contact the music minister to provide written music for their instrument giving opportunity for the use of the talents God has brought to the church.

The principal function of the choir is to lead in foundational music in worship of the church glorifying God through biblically based foundational music. The choir is open to anyone led to join. A sense of community and family is present in all who participate.

Senior Citizens: Unity Baptist Church has an active senior citizens club known as “Sunshine Senior Citizens” club. The object of the club is to develop interest in recreation and good fellowship for the senior citizens of Unity and the surrounding communities and to promote a well-rounded program for club members.

We meet on the last Tuesday of each month for about two hours beginning at 10:30am. There is a time for devotions, a program and the balance of the time is devoted to refreshments, fellowship, etc. Each member is asked to bring a covered dish for our lunch. Dues, in the amount of $15, are collected in January. This covers any bills for stationery, paper products, memorials, etc. In December some of our funds are used to have a Christmas party at a local restaurant.

Outings have included trips to the beach in September, Billy Graham Library, mountains in October to get apples, Hamricks in Gaffney, and other planned events.

Members need to be 55 years of age or above unless, for some reason, disabled to work. The club will accept persons that are not members of Unity Baptist Church
