Announcements for the Month of March

Intercessory Prayer Team:

First union’s Prayer Ministry is forming an Intercessory Prayer Team. We are in need of many Spiritual Soldiers to stand on the frontline in prayer. We will concentrate our prayers in 5 specific and much needed areas of our ministry.  

 Yearlong Scripture Pursuit:

All church members are asked to engage in a yearlong scripture pursuit. Each member should select a weekly scripture to support your walk with the Lord. For the first few months of the year please select a praise text.


First Union has implemented two online giving processes. We will use the Givelify application available through First Union's Website, your App Store or Google play. You may also give through PayPal on our website (www.firstunionbaptistchurch.org).

You can also mail your offerings to the church:

Parents are responsible for checking with the director and examining food for allergies. If you have children that are younger than the age of three and they wish to be part of children’s church, you are welcome to sit with them as they engage in the lessons and projects. Provided your child is at the age of 3 or above and is challenged with sitting of following direction, please assist with caring for your child in children’s church. You also have the option of your child worshipping with the adults.


Evangelism and Witnessing Campaign (FRANGELISM):

FRANGELISM is a form of Evangelism which targets people within your sphere of influence to invite to church. Yes, that's right! It's a basic form of evangelism and you need only invite someone to church. 1 Corinthians 3:6 tells us that we are instruments used by God, who together with Him, serve to promote His Glory. ​
