Rebuilding the Historic Jefferson Avenue Church

On Saturday December 25th, the historic Jefferson Avenue SDA Church caught fire just hours after worship service. We are thankful that no one was harmed. Unfortunately, the massive flames engulfed the once iconic structure; leaving it in ruins. This church has stood as a symbol of hope and peace for all who visited. It has served the Rochester community for several decades.  We want to rebuild!

Please help. Support Operation Restore Jefferson with your donation. ALL proceeds will go to the rebuilding of this great church. Thank you so much!
