This is Clark Bunch, pastor of Unity Baptist Church, extending you a personal invitation to worship with us at our church home in Plainville, GA. We hope that old friends and first time guests are made to feel equally welcome.

I grew up in Calhoun and have spent most of my life in this area. I am a 1994 graduate of Calhoun High School and a 1998 graduate of Shorter College (now Shorter University) in Rome, GA. I met my wife Teresa while at Shorter. We have been married 19 years and have one daughter, Johannah. We were called by Unity Baptist in September of 2014.

I believe the Bible, from one end to the other, tells the story of how a holy and righteous God deals with sinful, fallen and broken people. At the center of that story is Jesus. The Bible is the center of everything we do at Unity Baptist but it’s a story that never gets old. We believe the Gospel is good news. It’s not just something we talk about at church, it affects the way we interact with friends, family and neighbors in the community. If it doesn’t sound like good news, it’s not the Gospel. If it cannot be supported by scripture, it’s not of God.

Join us for worship! Our services have very little ritual; the congregation is small but friendly. Our building is wheelchair accessible, childcare will be provided if needed. Contact me if you have any questions not addressed by the website or have any other concerns.

Thank you and God bless!

God Remembered Noah

Genesis 7 ends with a cliffhanger. Noah, his family and every kind of animal are on the ark. Rain had fallen for 40 days and not only were the windows of heaven opened but the fountains of the deep were broken up. How will the story end?

“Then God remembered Noah” (Genesis 8:1) is our launching point for this week’s sermon. God always remembers. He is faithful and just concerning his promises (Deut. 7:9, 1 John 1:9). Join us as we consider precious truths from God’s Word that are as true now as they were for Noah.

God’s Flood

Last week’s sermon, Noah’s Ark, came from Genesis chp. 6. This week’s sermon, God’s Flood, is from Genesis 7. We are reminded that Noah did all that God commanded, and as a result he and his family were saved even as God judged all the rest of humanity. We will also examine the use of the number 40 in the Bible.

On Mission Connection: Praise and Thanksgiving

imb26 churches in the Gordon Memorial Association participating in On Mission Connection Revival 2016! Pictured with Pastor Clark is Gwen Wilkinson, IMB missionary to Africa for 32 years. We also heard from Bill Sharp (Smoking Mountain Ministries) Sunday evening, then joined our brothers and sisters at Fellowship Baptist Church to meet a couple with no last name ministering to Muslims, President Don Dowless of Shorter University and Jeff Rudell of the Gideons. Very grateful to Fellowship for the warm welcome and the invitation to supper each evening. (It was all delicious.)

I don’t have numbers on the association-wide love offering but we collected $165 at Unity on Sunday Alone! Continue to be in prayer for our missionaries across the street and around the world as we work together to build the Kingdom.

On Mission Connection Revival

Screenshot 2016-07-31 at 4.30.56 PM27 churches in the Gordon Memorial Baptist Association are working together to make On Mission Connection 2016 a reality. Missionaries from our state association (GBC) the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the International Mission Board (IMB) will be speaking and presenting in our churches, bringing the images and stories from the mission field “home” to those who offer prayer and financial support.

Unity Baptist will have missionary speakers during the morning and evening services (11 am and 6 pm) on Sunday August 14th and partner with Fellowship Baptist on Plainville Rd. Monday – Wednesday. Join us on Sunday morning and stay for food and fellowship following the a.m. service. Fellowship’s evening services begin at 6:30 pm, supper at 5:45 each evening.

Click here to read more about OMC from the IMB website, or here for details from the Gordon Memorial Association. Pray for the many missionaries, pastors, coordinators, drivers, and association personnel as they plan and work together on this massive endeavor.

Getting the Gospel Right


When the Pharisees bring a woman to Jesus, caught in the act of adultery, he forces them to reflect on their own sinfulness. Jesus offers grace and mercy but does not ignore sin and its consequences. In this sermon we will consider how some have got the gospel message wrong and look to the example set by Jesus in our efforts to get the gospel right.
