“When my spirit is frayed, Rock Spring is where I turn to become restored in heart and reminded again of life’s sacred thread.”
~ Vince Meehan
At Rock Spring we care more about belonging than beliefs. While we are distinctly Christian, we respect and draw insight from other faith traditions. The members and friends of Rock Spring include those who are life-long Christians, humanist atheists, and/or part of multi-faith families. As part of the United Church of Christ, we are a non-creedal Church — meaning that there is nothing you need to believe to belong.
So what does it mean to be a member?
Becoming a member means that you want to be in a mutually supportive relationship with this community of faith. You agree to commit to this covenant, in which you agree to receive support from this community of faith, as well as provide it. Members are able to vote on issues brought before the Congregation and may serve on our governing board.
During the pandemic, we drew new members from Ohio to England. Regardless of your proximity to Rock Spring, you can participate in a variety of ways! We have out-of-state members who participate with Sacred Circles (women’s groups), read liturgy in worship, and more.
“Even though I live in Ohio, being a member of Rock Spring has given me the spiritual connection I had been missing over the last few years. I have found a warm, welcoming, and inclusive church home, for which I am very thankful!”
~ Chris Hood
Throughout the year, we have several “Getting to Know You” gatherings. These events are intended to help us get to know each other. They are a place to bring all of your curiosities about this congregation and our larger denomination, the United Church of Christ. These sessions often help people decide whether or not Rock Spring feels like a spiritual home. If you are interested in coming to a Getting to Know You session, joining the church, or talking with one of our pastors, don’t hesitate to reach out.
