Money goes to the United Methodist Children’s Home, Neighborhood Center, Bridges Food Pantry, Ecumenical Food Pantry, Delta House, York Rescue Mission, and Downtown Daily Bread. We adopt “home bound” members and remember them on their birthday and holidays. We fill Christmas bags with fruit, candy, and cookies and deliver to the home bound. We purchase large print Upper Rooms for the homebound and deliver them. The UMW is active with 78 regular members and 30 active women. Our executive board meets 5 times a year where most of our business takes place. Ten women serve on the board.Contact: Dotsy Baiza:

Each July Baughman UMC hosts its Vacation Bible School for children Preschool – 12yrs.  Our VBS starts on Sunday evening and extends to Thursday evening.  The purpose of our VBS program is to help children experience the gospel of Jesus for themselves, and to give them opportunities to make a personal commitment to Christ.  There is no charge, and members of the community are welcome to send their children.


Every fall Baughman UMC has a special program with a unique theme for several weeks called Weekend Bible School. Some of the themes have included Kings of the Bible and Superheroes of the Bible. There are fun games, interactive activities and lessons, special snacks, great music and invite children to do something fun and different as they get re-adjusted to school/church schedules for the fall season. It rejuvenates everyone and allows us to start the year off with enthusiasm for Jesus and the Bible!
