Surprise your loved one with a SINGING VALENTINE!
Choir members of the Baldwinsville 1st UMC will be “delivering” Singing Valentines around the Baldwinsville/Syracuse area on Saturday, February 13 and the afternoon of Sunday, February 14th. All proceeds will support our Mission Fund.
We will provide: a Valentine Card, a long-stemmed rose or silk flower, and a Love Song or favorite hymn.
For only $20.00! Reserve your Singing Valentine after the 9:00 worship or by calling the office at 635-6442 weekdays, 9:00-2:00.
This would be the perfect gift for a loved one who is house-bound or in a nursing facility!
Wednesday Evenings ~ “The God We Can Know” ~ Pastor Lundgren
The study will be augmented with readings from the book The God We Can Know by Robert Fuquay. Copies of the book are available in the Church Office for $10. It's our hope that this time will help you get to know God, give you food for thought, and an opportunity to discuss with others what you are learning. The study begins February 17th at 6:30 in the Conference Room and will continue through March 23. If you are unable to attend the study The Upper Room is offering an e-Course using Fuquay’s book at http://course.thegodwecanknow.com/.
Wednesday Mornings ~ Upper Room ~ Jan Beall
A Wednesday morning Lenten Study will begin February 17 and run through March 23, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. The “Upper Room” will be used for the study. To ensure a good discussion eight people will be needed for the class to take place. Contact Jan Beall at 635-1356 or the church office by February 15. The “Upper Room” is available in the church office.

SAMASAN will gather for an extraordinary evening of EXCITEMENT and FUN! It will be unlike anything you have experienced before! Come, join us in the church dining room. You will be contacted and asked to bring one of several different items. This will not be a traditional ‘dish to pass’ but please bring your own place setting.

I am an avid reader and consumer of various media. Each month I will share with you that which I’ve found to be spiritually motivating and/or relevantly informative. Enjoy!
The inevitable condition of aging and dying and their human spiritual needs often seem to run counter to the goals of medicine. Atul Gawande is a Bostonian practicing surgeon who honestly and clearly weaves together what growing old means in the 21st century, the medicine profession’s focus on “health and survival,” and how we need “sustenance of the soul” for meaningful living. Thought provoking, “Being Mortal” is a touching and valuable read, informative yet interesting and often story-like in form.
