5 at 5 SERVICE
Our second 5 at 5 Service will be held on Sunday March 30 at
5 PM in the church sanctuary. This abbreviated service is simple and meaningful. We encourage all our faith family to attend, most especially those who are unable to come on Sunday mornings. The service is also an opportunity for all in the community who have a desire to grow in faith individually and with others. Perhaps you have never had any church experience but are curious. Maybe you have not attended church for an extended period of time. Or maybe you had an unpleasant experience at a church you did attend. This is a wonderful, simple, no pressure way to learn about our Christian faith and our church. If you feel uncomfortable about coming, please know that you are welcome at the Baiting Hollow Church no matter what your background is. You may sit and observe or you may participate…which ever way your heart leads you. Just know that we are glad you came and we welcome you with open arms.
A BIG BAITING HOLLOW CHURCH WELCOME!
Welcome to the web home of the Baiting Hollow Church! We hope you will investigate 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 a relatively small but active church. We are told by visitors and local folk that the Baiting Hollow Church is a very friendly 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 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 10am with Sunday school taking 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 and our newest project Carpenter’s for Christ.
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. Please explore the Baiting Hollow church website further to learn more about our"Church on the Hill" and what we have to offer you. We look forward to seeing you in person. Welcome Home!
