Directory of Area Organizations
At Rock Spring we gather on Sundays to be nourished by the Spirit and then, afterwards, we scatter to serve the world. Some of us serve through our professions. Many of us volunteer within the community. Here are just some of the many organizations Rock Springers partner with through their time, specific skills, or financial gifts.
