Perhaps the greatest gift we can bestow upon our children is the provision of a solid, faith-built foundation as we help them find their wings to fly. Our mission in UBC’s Children’s Ministries is to equip our children with important faith skills that will inspire them to see themselves serving others through God’s holy work.
The results of the completed Children’s Ministries renovation project will support this mission.
Phase 1: Great Room renovations, including improved lighting and sound (complete)
Phase 2: Improved welcome area/restroom facilities (funded)
Phase 3: Improved classrooms, hallways, renovated kitchen and workroom
The entire renovation project is being funded completely with cash payments.

Mission Training Center
On Sunday, May 1, at 12:30 in the afternoon, rain did not dampen the spirits of the church and community members who attended the building for our newly constructed 8,000-square-foot Mission Training Center. This center will now serve as a base of operations for a variety of mission and ministry efforts staffed by UBC volunteers.
UBC has birthed dozens of ministries over the past forty years as we have encouraged one another to find places of service to express the love of Christ beyond the walls of the church building. Two of those ministries in particular have grown roots in the Bay Area and have stretched across many U.S. states.
UBC’s Build Team, which erected its first church in 1982 in Durango, Mexico, has constructed over twenty-five churches on the Navajo Reservation, and locally, continues to work with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity.
Coordinating with Texas Baptist Men, UBC’s Disaster Relief Team responds to disasters all over the U.S., such as the Bastrop fires, the tornados in Tuscaloosa, Colorado floods/landslides, Georgetown floods and Hurricane Sandy in the New York area. Locally, the team provides support for those affected by natural disasters, assists with tree removal and also provides feeding support for projects such as Love Houston, often working directly with the Houston Mayor’s office.
New Learning Center Chiller
We were blessed with sufficient cash flow from last year’s budget to replace the 130-ton AC chiller for the Learning Center. The $110,000 project went smoothly and did not require us to access reserves.
To prevent loss of investment, we have completed aspects of the Pavilion. We will continue with additional improvements (sidewalks, stamped concrete, utilities) within the current funding. Completion of the roof, restrooms, food serving area and multimedia equipment will be completed when we are resolved with the architect’s estate.
