Open & Affirming

Rock Spring is committed to the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered persons into our life and community.  In 2000, Rock Spring adopted an Open and Affirming statement, which reaffirms the dignity of all persons in the church and in society.  In 2007, the Open and Affirming statement was updated to include full and equal marriage in society and commited the congregation to witness to full civil rights for all people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  In the years ahead Rock Spring will continue to extend its welcome by witnessing to God's inclusive love for all people.

We have marched in the "Capital Pride" parade every year since 2001 and have participated in various other activities in support of the dignity and full civil rights of all LGBT people.

Rock Spring is actively engaged in many activities in support of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.
