Youth Gathering

The Gathering is for youth 7-12 Grades. We meet at the church every Sunday night from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. There’s good food, cool games, great worship and a life-changing message each week. It’s a time to come and just simply connect with your friends. We hope that you can come and check us out some Sunday night. Just “Gather” at the Rochester First Baptist Church, 6 Vernon Drive. Check us out on the website at Click on the ministry tab and then under youth.
