Praise & Worship

• True worship is offered to God from the depths of our inner being in praise and prayer, in song, in giving, and in living, but always based upon His revealed truth.

• Biblical worship is to be first and foremost reverent - Hebrews 12:28. This means it is to be done with the understanding of who it is being worshiped. God is holy, just, righteous, perfect, powerful, loving, wrathful etc. Read more

Summer programs: In joining the education network, UBRC is one of the communities committed to develop formal plans to address three underlying challenges that can keep young children, especially those from low-income families, from learning to read well: School readiness — too many children are entering kindergarten already behind. School attendance — too many young children are missing too many days of school. Summer learning — too many children are losing ground academically over the summer. UBRC is determined to join those across the country, communities which complete rigorous self-assessments of the students’ progress, mobilized local constituencies through events such as Summer Learning Day and Attendance Awareness Month, and updated to fulfill community Solutions Action Plans.

The UBRC pastors preach positively about singleness, without stating that “our church doesn’t want the singles program to become its own subculture,” UBRC recognizes the singles “as a group needing the ministry of the Church and the message of Christ. “Singles struggle with a sense that the culture around them is waiting for them to get married and become ‘legitimate. ’We encourage the single adult ministry being single adult-owned and operated, Even when unchurched singles are the target, an outreach-oriented singles group has to start with a core group committed to the ministry and to each other. Therefore, the focus is to identify a few things the singles ministry wants to concentrate on and do well.

SMALL-GROUPS FELLOWSHIP

The small groups are mapped alongside the UBRC catchment in several county locations of North Carolina and out of state. People talk more in small groups. People in a small group, whether based in a home or in the church, are more likely to participate in discussions than in a large class. Since there are fewer people, there is more opportunity to talk and less room to hide. Group members realize that others face similar problems. People often think there is something uniquely wrong with them. When they hear that others have similar struggles, they feel relieved and encouraged. People use their gifts and talents to minister to one another, God don’t expect pastors and teachers to do all the ministering. He has given each of us gifts and talents to encourage, teach and challenge one another. Small groups provide the perfect setting for Christians to minister one to another. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24). Small group members encourage each other in their faith. We strengthen each other’s faith. In his letter to the Romans, Paul taught us that when we see the faith in another believer, it encourages us in our own faith. … that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith (Romans 1:12). Small group members encourage each other to grow. Regardless of a group’s focus or format, after a while people are likely to share personal insights and testimonies. When people share, other group members see new ways they can draw closer to God and new steps they can take with others. Changing is hard. There is nothing like a word of encouragement when someone feels hopeless or discouraged. Group members support one another, both during meetings and outside them. We can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God (2 Corinthians 1:4). Group members hold each other accountable. If someone announces he or she plans to work on making a change, other members of the group may ask how it went the next time they get together. This can be done in a friendly, informal way. Or group members may make a plan to be accountable to each other. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17). Members pray for one another. God honors and answers prayer. When people become connected emotionally, they are more open to praying for one another. Often, group members exchange prayer requests or become prayer partners. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them (Matthew 18:20). People are more likely to practice what they learn. For all the above reasons, members of a small group are more likely to apply what they learn than those in a large class. Group members can help each other in hard times. People often feel isolated, alone or abandoned when facing grave health, emotional or financial problems. Small group members can provide a “safety net,” supporting one another in hard times. 2016 be on the lookout for the small-groups re-structuring and the new boundaries in line with your location(s).
