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.

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. In the afternoon, all are invited to participate in the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington’s Unity Walk, visiting houses of worship and other religious centers along Massachusetts Avenue in a public celebration of solidarity among different faiths and cultures in our community. More information about the walk is at www.ifcmw.org. Rock Spring has chartered a bus to and from the Unity Walk. To sign up for the bus, go to http://bit.ly/unitybus.
