Serving the World...

...through the ministries at New Hope Free Methodist Church!

Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (RAIHN)

"Keeping families together.
Getting families home for good."

Rochester Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (RAIHN) is a not-for-profit, interfaith, culturally-competent organization that assists homeless families to achieve sustainable independence by supporting them with tailored services including shelter, food, personalized case management, and a diverse network of caring volunteers.

New Hope Free Methodist Church is partnering with Artisan Church to participate in the RAIHN network. We provide home-cooked meals and a friendly space, for parents and their children who are in housing crisis, to call home while they work on more permanent solutions.


Men's Covenant Groups

"Fostering relationships as brothers in the Lord, assisting each other to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ by encouraging intimacy with God, community with one another and service to those in need."

To become men of God, who are authentic and excited believers, passionately engaged in worshiping God, teaching and serving others.

Every man is being encouraged to be involved in a two or three men’s Covenant Group.
