As Christ walks among us, Union Temple Baptist Church walks alongside its neighbors in the Anacostia Washington, DC neighborhood. Although gentrification is rapidly changing the community, the congregation UTBC raises hope in a community plagued by poverty, crime and unemployment. UTBC provides a safe haven for this neighbors who are struggling, yet remain faithful and resilient by feeding the homeless, mentoring young men and women, providing dance and music activities for youth, providing a TANF welfare to work program and its work with Anacostia High School. Family and spiritual empowerment is central to Union Temple’s mission, with more than 600 people attending weekly services, singing praise to God and hearing the good news of Jesus’ love through Willie F. Wilson’s powerful and moving sermons
Please join our efforts to Rise Up and Build Union Temple. Through the faithfulness of its people, the strength of prayer and the dedication of its partners, UTBC will prevail in its ministry. With God's help, nothing is impossible.
