It is a sad day for our congregation. After a rapid struggle with ALS, our beloved Rose Welch has died.
Rose lived with vitality, creativity, and good humor. She was a fierce advocate for justice and an outspoken voice for inclusion. Her love for all of God’s creation and all of God’s people is indeed a light on a hill. Rose will be missed terribly even as we shall lift our gratitude for her remarkable life.
In these moments of grief, let us find our solace in God who knows our frustration, our grief, and our gratitude.
Details on memorial arrangements are pending.
Chuck and the rest of Rose’s family know of your love for them and your well wishes. For the moment, please allow your prayers for them to be your gesture of care and reserve calls and visits for another day.

Rose has now moved to palliative care and has been enrolled with hospice. She is no longer responsive, but is being kept comfortable. Pray for her continued comfort and for peace for those who love her dearly.

Rose’s struggle with ALS has taken another unwelcome step forward. The characteristic degeneration has reached her legs necessitating hospitalization. Upon discharge, Rose will need a higher level of care and will therefore be moved to Fairport Baptist Home or similar place of care. Your prayers for Chuck, Rose, and all who love them in the midst of these painful changes are much appreciated.
The previously utilized Care Calendar has been suspended for the moment. As further needs arise, it may be reinstated.
