Youth of Rock Spring (YoRS)

Most Sunday evenings during the school year, the youth group, known as Youth of Rock Spring (YoRS), meets from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Activities range from retreats to hikes to game nights to service projects. In addition, high school youth are invited to participate in a summer mission trip.

During the summer, look for "Pop Up YoRS," occasional, nearly spontaneous gatherings for fun and fellowship. 

We use the "Remind" app to share information about meeting times and activities. Contact Ashley Martinage to be added to the distribution list!

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.
