Sunday Mornings

During the summer, youth in 6th grade and up are invited to join us in worship.

During the school year, at the 11:00 a.m. service, youth participate in a combination of worship and Sunday School. On each first Sunday of the month, all youth in 5th grade and up stay in worship throughout the service and are actively recruited to participate by serving as a reader, musician, usher, greeter, or in other roles. Rock Spring places a great value on including youth in worship so that they can come to understand its rhythms and rituals. The 6th-8th grade class meets on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month. The 9th-12th grade class meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.

Transportation Ministry
Posted: Jun 22 2017 - 1:21pm

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?  We are looking to bolster our transportation ministry in the church by including more people who can offer a ride to church once a month.  One pick up at Chesterbrook Residences is particularly needed.  Scheduling will be very flexible based on what works for you!  To volunteer, contact Mary Helen Harris at mhhrah@gmail.com or Laura Martin.

 

PopUp YoRS
Posted: Jun 14 2017 - 5:18pm

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. Bring $5 and wear your walking shoes. Come and catch up with your YoRS friends! We’ll be back at church by 1:00 p.m. for pickup. 


Sunday, June 25, 11:15-1:00 p.m.

 

Interfaith Conversation
Posted: Jun 14 2017 - 2:16pm

Join us in conversation about potential programming for next year in interfaith relations.   What might we want to learn?   How can we best dialogue with people from other faith traditions? What questions do we have?   Come to this conversation with your ideas and passions and be in conversation with others from Rock Spring. 

Sunday, June 25,  11:15 a.m., Hunter Room 205

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.
