Women's Retreat

March 10, 2017 (All day) to March 12, 2017 (All day)

Friday,March 10 - Sunday, March 12, Carter Hall Conference Center
Join us for Rock Spring’s annual women’s retreat which will be led this year by Kathleen Moore.  We are limited to 41 participants, so act quickly.  Revised costs for the whole weekend are $280 for the double-occupancy rooms.  (All single occupancy rooms are claimed.)  If you’re set on a single room, there are B&Bs in the area that could provide a way to participate while still having your desired accommodations.  We are planning on holding a self-hosted wine and cheese (and more) supper on Friday evening with the rest of the meals being provided by Carter Hall.  If you’d like to reserve a spot, register here.

If you have questions, contact Susan Peters at 703-521-0163.  Cut off for registration and payment is Feb 22.  You can pay online on the registration page or with a check.  Checks should be made out to Rock Spring UCC with Women’s Retreat in the memo line.

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.
