Multi-Cultural Ministries

Rochester Covenant Church is home to people from many different walks of life, nations, and cultures--representing the Kingdom of God where one day people "from every tribe and language and people and nation" will worship and serve God together (see Revelation 5:10). 

Our worship life and ministries with children, youth, adults and families give opportunities for our diverse community of people to do life together.  In addition, Rochester Covenant Church sponsors or hosts ethnic- and language-specific worship times and gatherings.  These include:
