The Rev. Alan G. Newton, Executive Minister

Dear Friends,
For nearly every month of the year there are special designations.  Some are serious and others more trivial.  April has it fair share of both.  I bet most of you didn't know that April is National Licorice Month, National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month and Holy Humor Month. On the more serious side April is also Child Abuse Prevention Month, National Autism Awareness Month and Stand Against Racism Month. Read Full Article

Care to Get to Know Your Muslim Neighbors?

The hope is for Christian/Muslim pairs in the Rochester area to meet once a month or once every six (6) weeks.

If you or someone you know is interested please send an email to Rev. Alan Newton   execrochabc@gmail.com
