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)
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our traditional adult ministries have been canceled. Instead it has been decided for the time being to use this page as a resource  for the families in our church and community to build their relationships with each other, and God. Here you will links to parenting resources, encouraging videos, devotionals, links to family friendly entertainment, as well as announcements.

Quiet Time With God

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. —
Today’s Scripture:

The word connected captures our contemporary experience of life. Many people rarely go anywhere without a cell phone, iPod, laptop, or pager. We have become accessible 24 hours a day. Some psychologists see this craving to stay connected as an addiction. Yet a growing number of people are deliberately limiting their use of technology. Being a “tech-no” is their way of preserving times of quiet, while limiting the flow of information into their lives.

Many followers of Christ find that a daily time of Bible reading and prayer is essential in their walk of faith. This “quiet time” is a disconnection from external distractions in order to connect with God. The “green pastures” and “still waters” of Psalm 23:2 are more than an idyllic country scene. They speak of our communion with God whereby He restores our souls and leads us in His paths (v.3).

All of us can make time to meet with God, but do we? In Robert Foster’s booklet “7 Minutes With God,” he suggests a way to begin: Start with a brief prayer for guidance, then read the Bible for a few minutes, and close with a short time of prayer that includes adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication for others. It’s vital to take time today to connect with the Lord, who is our life.

Youth Ministries, GLOW
Sunday evenings, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
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.

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.
As parents and grandparents, we in the children’s ministry department are well aware of how this break from school and church is impacting our youngsters. With that in mind, our Director Rachel and myself thought that compiling some activities that can be done at home to keep little hands and minds busy could be a blessing to both the children and their parents. On this page you will find links to  free educational websites, Christian videos, family devotionals and print outs to help pass the time! Check back often as we will be changing content, and adding more links throughout the upcoming days and weeks.

Theme: God Is in Control
 
God Created Us
 
Scripture: Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. (Genesis 2:7)
 
Play: Using a bottle of bubble solution, blow bubbles into the air. See who can “catch” a bubble without making it pop. Ask what is inside the bubbles. Is it just air? No, breath. 
 
Talk: Just as we can fill a bubble with our breath, God filled man with His breath when He created us and gave us life (Genesis 2:7). Since it’s easy for a bubble to pop or burst, it must be treated with care. In the same way, human life is fragile and must be protected because it’s so valuable. Of all He created, God only shared His breath with humans, which makes us His most special creation. What other things make humans different from animals? 
 
Pray: Thank God for creating you in a special way.
