2015 Confirmands

Confirmation

All young people in 9th grade and above who are not confirmed are invited to participate in the church’s confirmation process. At Rock Spring, this process seeks to help young people explore their personal beliefs and spirituality by helping them understand more about the Christian faith, as well as other faith traditions. Each participant is paired with an adult conversation partner to help him or her explore these questions more deeply. Since the process is geared toward discernment, each young person will have the opportunity to decide whether to become confirmed and formally join the church.

The 2017-2018 class will begin in September. Please contact Ashley Martinage for more information.

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
