Greetings!

I, Luonne Abram Rouse, ordained elder in The United Methodist Church and appointed to First Church Baldwin, United Methodist, and Marie (my spouse) share faith in Jesus Christ, Son of God, who grants grace and mercy by way of the divine love of God through communion in the Holy Spirit with you.

Ask us about First Church Baldwin, United Methodist. As a local church within the New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church denomination, the facilities are located at 881 Merrick Road, Baldwin, New York, and members share in worship with open hearts, open minds, and open doors. The ministries have emphasis on strengthening the church as the body of Christ by teaching the importance of prayer, church attendance, financial giving, service to people, and faith-sharing.

There is unlimited value to worship, fellowship, and membership in our church. The greatest worth is witnessed in our compassionate care of people. We respect you and desire to listen to your ideas and experiences, too. It is with sincerity of heart that our focus on teaching all written of Jesus in the laws of Moses, the Prophets, the Psalms and the Gospels remains a priority.

We want to tell you about First Church Baldwin, United Methodist and hear about your life experiences. Call the church office at 516-223-1168 and attend soon. We welcome your presence.

Agape!
