Join our Choirs!

 University Baptist Church has a rich history of beautiful music, one that has grown tremendously under Director of Music, Ron Gretz. Our Foundation Worship Service features an organ, an amazing choir, and monthly handbell choir music. In addition to making a joyful noise, the members of the choir are known for their sense of community and fellowship, so this fall is a great time to join them!

In our world today, it can be difficult to say “Enough” in just about every area of our lives. Almost every time we turn around, we can find ourselves wanting more. And, when it comes to our financial lives, it can be extremely challenging to say, “Enough.” So, this series focuses on how we can handle our finances in a way that honors God – in the midst of a world that is never satisfied.
