Fifth Sundays

STOP Hunger Now - A Rock Spring Fifth Sundays Event - October 30, 2016

Our next event is the ever-popular "Stop Hunger Now."  Stop Hunger Now gets food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and works to end global hunger in our lifetime. Established in 1998, they have provided over 225 million meals in 74 countries. 

During the event, we will work in teams at each packaging station.  Volunteers set up and take down packaging stations and equipment, fill bins with raw ingredients, scoop ingredients into meal bags, weigh and seal the bags, box and stack them on pallets.  It is a multi-generational event.  You can read more about this great organization here: http://www.stophungernow.org/host-meal-packaging-event/

Fifth Sundays is a time to come and serve with your friends and family. To all who make Fifth Sundays a priority and consider it a cornerstone in your faith practice, thank you. If you haven’t yet given it a try, please come. You are certain to find something that nourishes your giving spirit and leave with a better understanding of the needs, hopes, and dreams of the people in your community, your country, and your world.

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.
