Lawson Road Church of Christ has been part of the Rochester and Greece communities since 1942. Located in Greece, our members today live in all parts of Monroe county.
The church is non-denominational but affiliates with other Churches of Christ locally and nationally. While the Bible serves as our final authority we appreciate the theological influences of the American Restoration Movement upon our teaching.
We exist to connect people with God. None of us are perfect. Despite our individual struggles we share the commitment to patiently support one another as together we represent God to our city.
Four key words provide a focus for Lawson Road: Love; Rescue; Reconcile; and Renew. Together, we refer to these as LR-cubed.
Jesus instructs his followers to love in three ways. We are to love God, our neighbors, and each other. Our times of worship and organized ministry seek to express love in these three directions.
Each person at Lawson Road acknowledges a point in our life where we needed God’s life -changing rescue. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection grant us reconciliation with God and renewed life. Having received these blessings we work to integrate them into our daily lives and share them with our broader community.
Lawson Road depends on the generosity of our members and friends to impact our community for God’s glory. Follow us on social media to ensure you don’t miss an opportunity to get involved.
LOVE: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
RENEW: “The reconciling work of Christ not only brings about peace, it also brings about a substantial change in people. One becomes a ‘new creation’.”
RESCUE: “The Christian faith does not revolve around a philosophy or ethics or organizations, but around a relationship with a God who comes. He seeks us out.”
