So please, come on in and check us out.

Special Guests This Summer

We’ll be blessed on three different Sundays this summer to have three different missionary families we support visiting with us. This coming Sunday, July 10, Jonah & Amy Haddad, with reachGlobal (EFCA) in Lyon, France, will be with us, bearing witness to the work God is doing in France. Later in August (Sunday, August 21), Nathan & Christina Pineault (reachGlobal, Panama) will join us and encourage our hearts with what the Lord has been doing through them.

Annual Church Picnic

Every summer, we praise the Lord outdoors (well, weather permitting, of course and it has only hindered us a couple of times in the past many years). This year, rather than “travelling” somewhere else in Rochester, we’ll spend time singing our praises, sharing testimonies of God’s goodness in our lives and partaking of some marvelous food right on our own property. Sunday, August 7, we’ll meet at 10.00 a.m. (note the different time!) under the maple tree outside our church building. If everyone would bring some kind of salad, fruit or a dessert, we know we’ll have plenty of food. So, come join us.

Standing In Need…

of forgiveness and of forgiving another. We’ve completed our time in Colossians, but the apostle Paul wrote another, very short, very personal letter to a man by the name of Philemon. It seems one of his slaves, named Onesimus, had run away. Yet God works all things together for good and no less so in this case. Join us for a “quick” two-part series in this companion letter to Colossians: the Letter to Philemon; Sunday, July 17 & 24


Come and hear the Word proclaimed and then listen again a bit later via this web site or podcast.


We have Bible classes for all ages, from the youngest toddlers (2’s & 3’s) up to the oldest of adults. Those young’uns are learning of God’s great plan to save a people for Himself. They do this in age-appropriate ways and just walk on through the whole Bible! The teens are learning what it means and takes to study God’s Word faithfully, using methods that will serve them a lifetime. 

And the adults? We’re offering Promises Made, a survey of the entire Old Testament in just a few short weeks. As much as survey courses may not “trip your trigger” for enthusiastic involvement, we think you’ll find this class a bit different from most survey courses. You see, we’re seeing Jesus on every page of the Old Testament as we fly high over each book each Sunday. This is what God intended: His Word to come to His people and point to His provided means of salvaiton –– Jesus Christ! So, even though we about 2/3 of the way through, it’s never too late to join in and see Jesus with us.
