NEWS FROM OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS......CHECK THEM OUT!
ROC SALT Center is a project of the Presbytery of Genesee Valley in Rochester NY. We invite mission teams of all ages and faith traditions to join us in the city, serving alongside our partner organizations, taking time out to reflect on those experiences, engaging in experiential learning, and worshiping together in community. Our goal is to connect people through relational mission opportunities and a ministry of presence to those in our community struggling with poverty, hunger, homelessness, refugee status, mental illness or other challenges. We hope to spark creative ideas about how each group can return home to engage with the people in their own neighborhoods who also face these issues. www.RocSaltCenter.org ROC-SALT-Mission-Center
