Welcome to the ROC SALT Center
Welcome to ROC SALT Center, where gathering in community lies at the heart of everything we do.
Whether serving with our partner organizations to address issues of hunger, homelessness and poverty; enjoying a concert or lecture in our beautiful sanctuary; providing food to our neighbors through our South Wedge Food Program; or participating in a retreat or immersive learning experience, we seek to know one another, celebrating what is best about our community and working together to re-imagine the places where we have left some neighbors behind.
Come. Gather together with us. We’re so glad you’re here!
ROC SALT Mission Program hosts teams of youth, adult and intergenerational participants who wish to experience mission in Rochester NY, combined with times for reflection, experiential learning, worship and fellowship.

Community Events are events that are open to the public.
