The Christians in Rochester are being called to join Christians internationally in showing support for the Jewish community by joining with them in remembrance of the Holocaust. We believe the Holocaust provides a clear picture of what can happen when God’s people remain silent in the face of evil, and we are saying in this time of increasing denial of the Holocaust that we will not be silent this time!
In Rochester, we have felt called to join this international movement and so will be holding our own march. The Rochester March of Remembrance will take place on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 2 p.m. and doors will be open at 1:30 p.m. It will begin at Edgewood Free Methodist Church on Edgewood Ave. and will be hosted by Pastor Doug Langford. The brief service will include information on the importance of standing with Holocaust survivors and Israel, the story of the wife of a Holocaust survivor, and some traditional Jewish music. We will then walk as a body of believers 1.4 miles in a prayer march to the Jewish Community Center, where we will join the Jewish community as they commemorate the Jewish Holocaust victims who died during World War II.
