There are several opportunities to connect to UBC:
God’s Family Dinner
God’s Family Dinner serves a free hot meal to about 200 people each Thursday; there are no requirements or restrictions–everyone is welcome. We need at least 6 volunteers to serve the meal, greet guests, and clean up from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Six of the volunteers serve the food by placing it on trays and giving the trays to the guests.
Additional volunteers are always welcome; they can help with serving drinks, keeping tables clean, sweeping floors, and visiting with the guests. Some tasks have more interaction with guests, and some have little or none–we’re happy to put people to work where they feel most comfortable and useful, though the first priority is always to cover the 6 serving positions. Learn more about God’s Family Dinner.
Fellowship and Connecting
Labyrinth College Ministry
A place for college students to learn, serve, and connect freely.
Our young(er) adults connect on Sunday mornings for Bible Study in the Maddry Center but also gather throughout the year outside of Sunday mornings. Contact Associate Pastor, Stephanie Cooper, for more information.
The Open Circle serves as a ministry and outreach to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) community within and outside of University Baptist Church. Our unity in Christ enables and requires us to be open to all persons and to the variety of talents and gifts of God’s people regardless of sexual orientation.
Parent’s Night Out
On the first Friday of every month, UBC provides childcare from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM so that parents can enjoy a night out.
Contact Lisa Cauble to sign up for the UBC prayer chain. If you have a prayer request you would like University Baptist Church to include in it’s Sunday Bulletin, please be aware of two things: First, be sure you have the permission of the person for whom you are requesting the prayer, so as to respect their privacy and wishes. Second, be sure to get prayer requests in by Thursday at 4:00 PM, so they may be included in the Sunday Bulletin in a timely manner.
University Baptist Church welcomes all persons to participate in the life of Christ’s church without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, or denominational background.
University Baptist Church is an autonomous Baptist church worshipping God and ministering together as disciples of Jesus Christ. We profess faith in God through Christ and seek to live out of the Divine self-disclosure in scripture. Our mission efforts extend around the world through our affiliation and cooperation with the American Baptist Churches in the U.S.A., the American Baptist Churches of the South, the Alliance of Baptists, and the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America. We are involved with local ecumenical and interfaith ministries through participation in Micah 6, Austin Area Interreligious Ministries, the Foundation for the Homeless, the Interfaith Hospitality Network, the Friendship International Ministry, and Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT).
