Fifth Sundays

STOP Hunger Now - A Rock Spring Fifth Sundays Event - October 30, 2016

Our next event is the ever-popular "Stop Hunger Now."  Stop Hunger Now gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, they have provided over 225 million meals in 74 countries. 

During the event, we will work in teams at each packaging station.  Volunteers set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients, scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them on pallets.  It is a multi-generational event.  You can read more about this great organization here: http://www.stophungernow.org/host-meal-packaging-event/

Fifth Sundays is a time to come and serve with your friends and family. To all who make Fifth Sundays a priority and consider it a cornerstone in your faith practice, thank you. If you haven’t yet given it a try, please come. You are certain to find something that nourishes your giving spirit and leave with a better understanding of the needs, hopes, and dreams of the people in your community, your country, and your world.

Do you have an empty seat in your car on Sunday mornings?  Would you like to fill that seat with another Rock Springer who could use a ride to church? 

Calling all youth! It’s our first summer “PopUp YoRS.” Summer is the perfect time to have a cold lunch... So we’ll gather in the Saegmuller Room after church and then walk to Zinga for frozen yogurt.

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.
