Family Hour is now Students Doology Hour!

Since 1970, First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. called its weekly fellowship and worship service "Family Hour," because it was designed for families to spend at least an hour in church together and study God's word. This past year, Minister Evans has noted that the majority of Family Hour attendees do not bring their families to worship, or the families of those who support the Institute do not accompany the active Institute student/supporter. As of October 31, 2010, Minister Evans has changed the name of the Sunday afternoon service from Family Hour to Students Doology Hour. Minister Evans' lessons of giving back and being more aware of our African heritage are primarily geared to his core group of students, but guests and others are still welcome to fellowship and eat with us on Sunday afternoons at 4 pm at 219 Hamilton Street.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

= If you are in the Rochester area please pick up a copy of the September 12 edition of the Challenger Community News. On page 2 is a beautiful article that summed up the legacy of this great man. I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
