East Rochester Community Resource Center

By Teresa Quinzi-Willette, Director

The East Rochester Community Resource Center is under the auspices of the East Rochester Association of Churches and the Village of East Rochester. Food and funding for our food pantry come from the individual churches, private donations and from Foodlink, Inc. We are so very grateful for the food and monetary donations made by churches and civic organizations and especially by Koinonia. God has blessed us with your support.

Our Food Pantry started in 1973 and occupied different locations, mostly within St Jerome's buildings. In 1993 fundraising began to purchase a building specifically to house all of our programs. Our permanent address is 333 E. Chestnut Street.  

Providing food is our most important and primary service. Each food pantry has its own rules for clients. There are general guidelines set out by Foodlink, Inc. that we all follow to the extent that fits our clientele and our circumstance. In general, we serve anyone who is in need, with slight priority given to families with children.

Spring's Song of Hope

By Lynn Metier

Song of Solomon 2:8: "Listen!  My Beloved!  Behold, He is coming!"  

Yes, the Bible tells us (most directly in John 14:2,3 and 1 Thess 4:15-17) that Jesus is one day coming back for His own.  This truth has both an individual certainty (“it is appointed for man to die once” – Hebrews 9:27) as well as a corporate, prophetic application (in the “harpazo” or “rapture” of the Church).  This knowledge believers have that one day we will face God is to profoundly influence the way we live.  “Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when He appears we will be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.  And everyone who thus hopes in Him purifies himself as He is pure.”  (1 John 3:2,3)  This “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13) belongs to every Christian, and indicates both a completed certainty and a continual process.  “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.  The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”  (2 Corinthians 5 17)  From the eternal perspective of God, who “(declares) the end from the beginning” (Isaiah 46:10), every born again believer is perfect and complete in Christ; but from our present, time-bound point of view, our spiritual growth and resulting change in lifestyle is an ongoing “walk”.  “For the grace of God has appeared … training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession” (Titus 2:11-14).

"My Beloved said to me, 'Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come away.’” (Song 2:10)  What a wonderful invitation!  It could also be viewed as a command, but the term of endearment and the favorable assessment reveal God’s heart.  Jesus calls us, even now in our present circumstances and surroundings, to "arise" – that is, to rise up, to stir up our spirit, to go beyond the physical, to overcome our flesh - "and come away".  Over and over again in the Scriptures believers are exhorted to be set apart from the world, for (and with) God.  God's deliverance of His people Israel from Egypt in the book of Exodus portrays His plan for all His children to "come out" of the world.  Whether by individual, physical death or through the corporate Rapture of the Church, each and every Christian will literally leave this world some day (as will all non-believers, but not through the Rapture), but “concerning that day and hour no one knows”. (Matthew 24:36)  However, there's also an immediate, spiritual consideration to this coming away.  We're not to follow the world's ways: "And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind". (Romans 12:2)  The world’s ways are superficial, meaning they can only meet physical needs but not deeper, spiritual needs; and they are only temporary, while God’s plan for us is eternal. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.’” (Jeremiah 29:11)  

 “‘For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.’”  (v.11)
