Faith Formation for Youth

A variety of programs are offered for students in Middle High (Grades 6-8) and Senior High (Grades 9-12). In addition to participating in these dedicated programs, the youth of Rock Spring and their friends are an active and vital part of the worship and service life of the church.

2015 Mission trip

Each summer the Senior High youth have the opportunity to go on a summer Mission Trip.

Rock Spring helps youth understand human sexuality in the context of faith.

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

Latest News

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.
