20s/30s Group

Rock Spring members and friends in their 20s/30s connect over brunch, game nights, and other social activities. Some of us are married with children, some are engaged or dating, while others are single. We range from our early 20s to late 30s. Events are casual and open to anyone in this age group who might like to join in. We sometimes talk about church or theological questions, but generally our focus is on getting to know each other in authentic ways. If you would like to receive information on ongoing activities, contact Laura Martin at twentythirty@rockspringucc.org

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.
