Side By Side - Rochester

Side By Side - Rochester

 Side By Side - Rochester strives to help medical and dental wives to grow strong in their relationships with Jesus Christ, with their husbands, and with one another. Being in a medical or dental marriage brings with it a unique set of circumstances. We are here to pray for, love, and encourage one another through whatever those circumstances might be, to help meet the physical and emotional needs of these wives and in doing so demonstrate the love that Jesus has for them.

Side By Side-Rochester is excited to be offering three summer study choices this year!  (Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all summer gatherings will be held outdoors in backyards, including childcare.  In the event of inclement weather, groups may choose to meet via Zoom.)

 We hope you aren’t feeling overwhelmed… but if you are, we can empathize. The move for our spouses or significant others to begin medical school, continue their training, or begin their job was a big change for us too.

When we were in your shoes, it was nice to know that people were waiting to welcome us to our new home. We have created a Side By Side - Rochester Welcoming Guide and hope it will be a valuable resource as you are settling in.

If you have any questions or would like to see the Welcome Guide, please contact our Welcome Team by emailing us at sidebysiderochester@gmail.com. We are looking forward to meeting you.

We believe there is something unique about the support medical wives can offer each other. Though some of our members would never come to a Bible study, they'll come to a place where people understand what they are going through, where they find friends and surrogate family, and where they experience support and companionship.

Our goal is to help meet the physical and emotional needs of medical wives demonstrating the love that Jesus has for them. We have a general fund that contributes to the overall operational expenses and a specific childcare scholarship fund, which allows us to continue keeping childcare costs low for everyone. Please contact us at sidebysiderochester@gmail.com for more information about giving, thank you for your support.
