Congregational Care & Family Ministries

The congregation of Baldwinsville First United Methodist Church is committed to preserving this church as a holy place of safety and protection for all who would enter and as a place in which all people can experience the love of God through relationships with others.

The size and layout of Baldwinsville First UMC makes it challenging to respond to potential safety concerns and medical emergencies that may occur on a Sunday. In response to that, the church developed the Roamer system. We are always recruiting volunteers to serve as Roamers during the first worship service, beginning at 8:30 .m. and ending at the end of worship, at or around 10:15 a.m., and the second worship service, beginning at 10:15 a.m. and ending at or around 11:30 a.m.  One Roamer is stationed at the dining room/sanctuary end of the building and the other is stationed at the office/Sunday School wing entrance.
If you are willing to be a Roamer or would like to know more information about Roamers, please see Pastors Jeff or Bill, or attend one of the two scheduled meetings:
Wednesday, February 5 at 6:30 p.m. OR Sunday, February 9 at 7:30 a.m. in the dining room  
This meeting, which is as an update time for existing Roamers, will serve as an orientation for new Roamers. Please consider serving in this important way.
