  • REMINDER

Welcome 

 

     We are glad you are here!       

 Please take a minute to browse the website pages  -- read about our ministries, check out the photo albums, and get a sense of who we are here at First Church Baldwin.

 And then, why not pay us a visit?  Join us for worship.  Take advantage of opportunities for service, education and spiritual growth that will nurture you on your own unique journey of faith.

 We are a community of Spirit-filled people who promise "Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors."

 We look forward to welcoming you!smiley

 


                                                              

We need to reach past ourselves to those God has placed around us by promoting Christ’s love through Outreach to the community and the world...

That's why we are supporting Halandia Shores in Baldwin, a Senior/Low-Income Housing Development, by collecting and donating food items for their food pantry. For donations or questions please call or text Valerie Geasor at 516.851.9215.

 

 


 

 

 

 If you are interested in acquiring one or more, sizes available run from small to 5 X. These shirts are great to wear while participating in First Church events and activities, like the Fall Fair, Pumpkin Patch etc. They are making a great statement of unity to the public and the work we do at our church . 

 

 


 

 

     

 

WE PREPARED AND PLANTED on Sunday, May 23

 

“Now may God give you of the dew of heaven, And of the fatness of the earth, And an abundance of grain and new wine” (Genesis 27:28, NASB) 

On the day of Pentecost, we all were filled with the Spirit of the Living God, and our hearts were fired by the Spirit! God is with us and will feast the fruits of the garden at the heavenly banquet. May our garden become a place where we find abundant life, where we eat together and share the bounty of blessings in unity, and where we become signs of God’s kingdom, God’s family.

Our garden is open for all of you. If you need rest, peace, and relaxation, come and visit our garden. If you want to have spiritual conversations with God, come and visit our garden.

SUMMER

Creating Space for Spiritual Growth

Summer is a season to relax, disengage, and to slow. When schools close, people go on vacation and on trips to the beach or to see family. The pace of life slows down. However, what if we spend this summer to engage even more with God and create space for spiritual growth? All are welcome to join this Summer journey with God.
