Welcome!

ROCHESTER, NY

Gathering in community lies at the heart of everything we do.

Whether serving with our partner organizations to address issues of hunger, homelessness and poverty; enjoying a concert or lecture in our beautiful sanctuary; or providing food to our neighbors through our South Wedge Food Program; we seek to know one another, celebrating what is best about our community and working together to re-imagine the places where we have left some neighbors behind.

Come. Gather together with us. We’re so glad you’re here!
