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 summer winds down and we approach the fall, we are turning our thoughts to how to do ministry with the children come September. It was not an easy decision but, at this time we are delaying the start of Shine until January, when we hope that we will all be able to start a more normal existence again.  Our Jr. Church program will resume in September, but there will be some changes to it. Social distancing and masking will be enforced as well as frequent sanitation. Children can do in-person or virtual Jr. Church as previous classes and the accompanying lessons will be available here.
