Grade school children are taught in a single class using the Shine curriculum.The middle and senior youth meet with the youth groups provided by Christ United Methodist Church followed by additional time of Christian formation led by Rochester Mennonite Church teachers.

We utilize both topical and Biblical studies from Mennonite Publishing Network including the Good Ground Bible Studies and the Faith & Life Adult Bible Study. Attendees can expect an atmosphere where participants may openly discuss their perspectives and contribute to each other's spiritual development.
