Our Church's Mission

Mission ~ in New York State ~ Fairport, New York ~
Fairport Baptist Homes in Fairport, NY, provides a complete array of senior support services, housing and living options – including independent and assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. “Caring” is the single work central to everything and everyone at Fairport Baptist Homes. They provide for Seniors who would like to live independently and those who can no longer live safely alone in their own homes. They are dedicated to providing a uniquely personal, individualized level of care, for seniors and their families: “Senior Options for Independence” are designed to give seniors the support and housing options they need to stay independent longer, “Senior Living options” offer increasing levels of care, built around a unique household model, and “Personalized Rehabilitation Care” designed to help make the transition from hospital to home easier and faster. Through it all, they are creating a lifestyle unlike any other senior living community can offer. A lifestyle that is… Caring. Vibrant. Vital

Mission Giving
Thank you for the $840.50 you contributed for our Mission Budget on February 7th. Thank you also for the $45 towards our America for Christ goal of $899.

Mission Collection for the Backpack Program:
During the month of February we would like to collect hot cocoa to distribute to the Yates County Backpack Program for our kids.
