Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.  I do it all for the sake of the gospel,  that I may share with them in its blessing.

May the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do  for you.

ADULT MINISTRIES
At RFMC, The Outpost we strive to help all believers to grow in their relationship with Christ, making it possible for them to become great “fruit bearers” for Him. We seek to prepare, strengthen, and encourage believers to live as ambassadors of Christ, and fulfill Paul’s plea to the Corinthians and all who have read his letters, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20)

Oh That you would bless me indeed! In this fall season, our Adult director Paula has felt led to call us to prayer. Beginning on September 1st we will begin praying the Jabez prayer at 7am and 7pm. This is an independent prayer, knowing that our brothers and sisters are also praying on their own. Paula has also created a Facebook Group for those participating in the prayer call, this is a private group to share our thoughts/ ideas/ suggestions as we read the Jabez prayer book, as well as our testimonies of how we have seen it working in our lives. If you would like to be added to the group please contact Paula Johnston or Jennifer Thorn.

Special Covid-19 Announcement

Currently, we are exempted from limits on attendance as long as we follow sanitizing, distancing, and mask protocols and the Supt. is not recommending that we move back to that so, we will continue on as we have been until different instructions are given.

Youth Ministries, GLOW
Sunday evenings, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Here at the Rochester Free Methodist Church, our youth ministries team is establishing a focus on the youth of our community. Our Sunday evening youth group, GLOW, is a great place for fellowship, worship, food, and games. But our goal is not simply that; rather, our goal is to equip the youth to then go out and make disciples on their own, with the help of the Holy Spirit.
 
Under the supervision of our new Youth Leader and Director JoAnne Seevers  teens can expect a guided look into the scriptures’ through devotionals, games, music, and more! 
 
With not much time before summer, JoAnne Seevers (Youth Leader/Director) has a plan to get a few things in for the teens before summer break, check out the schedule below and make plans to join us!
 
From JoAnne:
We will be having regular youth group the next two Sundays.
 
We’re planning a dinner/ movie/ sleepover Saturday May 22nd into May 23rd. Plans are to clean up after breakfast then do our Sunday night lesson that morning. We will be finished up before 11 am service.
 
We will then be taking the next two weeks of (memorial day May 30th & VBS June 6th) but will meet up one last time before summer break on June 13th, for this week we will also be inviting children going into 6th grade, that will be able to join us next year.
 
Since church camp is not an option this year I will be looking into a 3-4 weekend camping trip. (Dates and trip pending help/availability please check back!).
 
 
Children’s Ministry
 
The Rochester Free Methodist Church has two wonderful programs to offer our families with young children.  Shine, which runs part of the year (Sept. -April) in the evenings for grades K -5th and our Jr. Church program which runs continuously through the year for ages 2-12 yrs. Each program offers the children fun activities focused on spreading the message of Jesus, and teaching our youngsters how to live out a life of faith.  We understand that the children are our future, and strive to not only get them engaged and excited about faith, but to help them understand their value as a child of God.
JR. CHURCH
Every week Mrs. Jennifer leads the kids through fun and interactive lessons designed to help children of varying ages get excited about the gospel! Through play, video, scripture reading, coloring and games she engages children to not only learn the stories and characters within the pages of the Bible, but to carry that knowledge boldly into their homes and schools.  The mission of RFMC, The Outpost to be ambassadors of faith begins with laying a foundations of faith and character at an early age.
