Join enthusiastic church members and friends as we march through cheering crowds in Rochester’s annual Pride Parade.

Upcoming Membership Event

Sunday, Nov. 24, 12:00 - 1:30 pm

Exploring Membership Luncheon

Four times a year, we host these luncheons designed for people new to the congregation to learn more about life and ministry at Third Church. We eat together and have conversation that introduces you to our community, gives you a chance to ask questions, and lets you get to know our pastoral staff, a few members of the church, and other folks new to this place. Attending a luncheon carries no obligation for you to join in membership; the emphasis is on exploring.

Our luncheon conversation will conclude at 1:30pm. For those that are ready to join in membership, the next step is a New Member Gathering offered at two different times (1) that same afternoon following the luncheon from 1:30-2:30pm, or (2) on new member Sunday two weeks later, December 8, at 8:30am or by special appointment.

For more information, contact Lynette Sparks ( or 271.6513 ext. 106).
