For Newcomers

We’re so glad that you’re considering visiting Rock Spring Church.

Rock Spring is made up of people who have gone to church their whole lives, people who grew up in other faith traditions, people who used to attend church and are giving it another try, as well as people who never attended church before coming to Rock Spring.

People from a wide range of backgrounds and many stations of life call Rock Spring their spiritual home. We hope that this information will help you know what to expect when you come. But the best way to get to know us is, well...to get to know us.

When you arrive, introduce yourself to an usher, a pastor, or the person sitting behind you, and ask them to answer any questions you have, or even to tell you what they love about Rock Spring.

We look forward to getting to know you.

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.
