A BIG BAITING HOLLOW CHURCH WELCOME!
Welcome to the web home of the Baiting Hollow Church! We hope you will spend time visiting the site to learn a bit more about our church. If you are searching for a spirit of Christian love
and friendship and a Faith Community grounded in God's amazing grace you will surely want to visit our historic Baiting Hollow Church in person.
Baiting Hollow Church is an active small church. We are located in the hamlet of Baiting Hollow on Long Island, NY. This is an area that used to be all agriculture, mainly potatoes. Housing developments have moved in but we still have a few farms and now vineyards complete with wine tasting and entertainment. We consider the Baiting Hollow area “country” as compared to other areas of Long Island to the west.
The Baiting Hollow church building is handicap accessible for the main floor. There is ample parking on church property .
Worship services are held at Baiting Hollow Church each Sunday morning at 10 am. Sunday school takes place at the same time. An additional opportunity to worship is at our 5 at 5 service. Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and it is open to all who wish to participate. Our communion elements are grape juice and bread. Gluten free wafers are offered for those who have a gluten intolerance. Dress for worship services is your choice. Some of our Baiting Hollow Church Family come in work clothes, others business casual and some even in sports uniforms as they are heading for their game after church.
The Baiting Hollow Church religious education program encompasses all generations with Sunday School for the younger students and bible study for the more mature. Confirmation classes are held as needed.
Women have played an important part in the history of Baiting Hollow Church since the early 1800’s. The year 2014 is no exception, as the women of the church are often called upon to help carry out our varied activities.
Baiting Hollow Church supports many mission programs, those of the United Church of Christ as well as others we have taken upon ourselves. Some are local and some reach out to various places like Appalachia.
Other activities we promote are our annual chicken barbecue, yard sales, Christmas greens sale, thrift shop, our cookbook of past and present recipes, Carpenter’s for Christ and our latest venture, a Car Show.
Baiting Hollow Church doors are open to all who wish to grow in faith individually and with others;who also wish to serve those in need and work for Christian unity and peace.
